Bob And The MONSTER - Bob Forrest Documentary feat. Stephen Perkins & Eric Avery

Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 3:29 PM By: Nate Pottker

Bob and the Monster is a documentary film that follows outspoken indie-rock hero Bob Forrest, through his life-threatening struggle with addiction, to his transformation into one of the most influential and controversial drug counselors in the US today. Bob and the Monster crafts contemporary footage, animation and compelling interviews with archival performances and personal videos from Bob's past to reveal the complex layers of this troubled, but hopeful soul. Testimony from his peers, including Courtney Love, Anthony Kiedis and Flea add texture, but it's the depth of Bob's music, interwoven throughout the film, that illuminates this unforgettable and inspirational story.

Jane's Addiction members Stephen Perkins and Eric Avery have recorded interviews for this film.
The film will premiere at SXSW in March 2011.
