Sopranos Creator David Chase Debuts '60s Rock Film

By October 9, 2012

Follow me on:

Sopranos creator David Chase has just debuted another Jersey-themed movie at the New York Film Festival, but this time it's about rock and roll. Not Fade Away deals with a teenage drummer forming a rock band in 1964, much to the chagrin of his more conservative father, portrayed by Tony Soprano himself, James Gandolfini. The film also had help from another famous Jersey Boy: Silvio himself, E Street Band legend "Little" Steven van Zandt, who's made quite a name for himself in the past few years as a garage-rock connoisseur. Steven took the "band" portrayed in the movie and gave them the School of Rock treatment, teaching them classic Buddy Holly, Beatles, Stones, and Kinks tunes in just 3 months. "They're a band now," he said at a press event for the film, which opens nationwide in December. "They could perform at a party tonight."
