Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this documentary, it becomes clear that the musicians of the rock group, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. are no strangers to drug use themselves. Their attitudes and drug use are discussed in backstage interviews in between sessions of a concert at the Federal Narcotics Rehabilitation Center in Lexington, Kentucky. It is difficult to tell if the irony was intended. This film explores the drug use of the musicians as well as the question of drug abuse in general. This serious subject is leavened by the musical performance of the group, which is shown in segments throughout the film.
