Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives!

Synopsis: In the early 1960s, legendary rock star Eddie Wilson disappeared from the limelight when he drove his car off a New Jersey bridge. Trying to escape his past, Eddie changed his name and has maintained a quiet life as construction worker Joe West in Montreal. However, the past will not die, it is screaming for resolution. His relentless desire to make music pulls him back to the stage where he forms a new band and an even better sound. Meanwhile, record company executives release newly-discovered tapes from Eddie's last album and promotes a worldwide search for the mysterious rock star. Joe West has become both mentor and nucleus for his new band that dreams of making it big without knowing their mysterious leader is the real Eddie Wilson. As his new band hits center stage, Eddie finally comes to terms with his past, himself and his music.

Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!

Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!

HOST:

All right, all right, hold on, here!

At this time I'd like to introduce

somebody from Satin Records.

These are the people

who re-issued Eddie and the Cruisers.

I'd like to introduce

a man by the name of Dave Pagent

who has something

you all want to hear.

Before Eddie Wilson died,

he was working on a new album,

an album called

Season In Hell.

(CROWD CHEERING

AND WHISTLING)

Now you all know

that Eddie Wilson is the greatest, right?

Satin Records has just

re-acquired the lost tapes

of Eddie Wilson's

never-released album, Season In Hell!

And we at Satin Records

are now gonna release it just for you!

Now here it is,

in its world premiere!

(WHOOPING)

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(CHANTING)

Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!

Eddie! Eddie! Eddie!

EDDIE:
You know,

what I want is songs that echo.

The stuff we're doing now

is like somebody's bed sheets.

Spread them out, soil them,

ship them out to the laundry, you know?

With our songs,

I want to be able

to fold ourselves

up in them forever.

You understand?

(ROCK MUSIC PLAYING ON TAPE)

Bad moon on the horizon

Something in the air today

Hear the sound of thunder

That's a pretty good

imitation of Eddie.

Who is it?

When we re-acquired

the Season In Hell album,

we found another totally unrelated

tape in the box, a mystery tape.

This tape.

And you think

this is Eddie?

Don't you?

It can't be.

Eddie always

played with me.

I knew every song he knew.

I knew everything that he...

No, no, this is Eddie.

What are you

trying to pull here?

There aren't

any tricks, Sal.

I've had the tape analyzed

and experts agree that this is Eddie Wilson.

Screw the experts.
