The semi-autobiographical story centers on Crowe‘s early days of writing for Rolling Stone in the 1970s. The film starred Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, Frances McDormand, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jason Lee. Almost Famous follows Fugit, Crowe’s stand-in, as he travels on tour with a fictional rock band called Stillwater.

The film’s soundtrack features hits such as Led Zeppelin‘s “That’s The Way,” the Beach Boys’ “Feel Flows” and Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer,” among many others.
