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.

I was his best friend.

I would know if he was doing something.

No, no. His music was

his best friend, Sal.

Don't you understand?

Eddie did not think

you belonged in this session.

He started playing

with other musicians

'cause he was

leaving you behind, pal.

That's a lie.

You're a goddamn liar!

Eddie wouldn't...

Somehow it's never

good enough

At times it's hard

to tell the difference

Between what you know

as right and wrong

(REDUCES VOLUME)

ON MICROPHONE:
Eddie Wilson

was my best friend.

That meant something

back then.

Maybe you don't

understand that.

(INCREASES VOLUME)

Hey. No, Lew!

Wait a minute.

Wait, Lew. Lew!

Sal's not thinking it's Eddie

makes this even better.

What are you

talking about?

Let me explain

it to you.

The Season In Hell album

will for sure be a big hit, but now...

So?

Now we raise

the question of

"Who the hell played

on the mystery tape? Where was it recorded?"

And best of all, "Were these songs

recorded after Eddie Wilson died?"

What the hell

you getting at, Dave?

What I'm getting at

is creating a rock 'n' roll mystery.

We don't know how

old this new tape is.

It could've

been recorded before or after

Eddie Wilson's car

went off that bridge.

Because Eddie Wilson's

body was never found.

That's right.

After Season In

Hell goes gold,

we announce that

we have discovered this mystery tape.

Release each cut

of it as a single,

and promote

the hell out of it.

Get people

to start believing

that Eddie

could still be alive.

You know,

"Eddie lives" kind of stuff.

We could arrange

sightings of Eddie,

newspaper articles,

maybe even a TV special!

People do not want

their heroes to die.

And that stuff

sells records, Lew, lots of records.

So? What do you think?

I think Eddie Wilson lives.
