The band was composed of guitarist Rick Springfield, drummer Joe Vitale, and keyboardist Bernie Worrell, Rick rosas on bass died before the film was released

backing up Meryl Streep, as "Ricki", on vocals and guitar.

She was great. I liked this movie very much.

I saw her in "Mamma Mia" and after this movie I had no doubt that she can sing this song!

check out Florence Foster Jenkins :lol:

i don't know how they made that movie with a straight  face  

- a nice if rather tragic true story

Meryl Streep is a great actor and I think she's doing a great job here for an actor. Still, movie actors performing music on stage or musicians acting on film shows how much hard work and talent it takes to get really good at it. Bob Dylan has great charisma on stage with a band  but any b-actor runs circles around him in a movie. Same goes the other way around. Streep, Depp or Crowe look like amateurs on stage with their bands. It's surprising but in my opinion true. Then there a people that can do both things. Lady Gaga for example.
