Movie of the Week - Crossroads (1986)

The Karated Kid becomes blues man extrordinaire Lightning Boy in this 1986 movie. Classically trained as a guitarist, Ralph Macchio yearns for the more raw sounds of the deep south blues. A wily old blues man convinces Macchio to help him get back down south on the pretense of allowing him to record a lost blues song that was never recorded.

There is plenty of good music throughout the movie, but it is the final guitar battle between Macchio and real-life guitarist Steve Vai that makes this movie a must-see.

Rent it if you haven't seen it. It is an enjoyable weekend film.

I'll be typin' at ya later,
