Bob and the Monster follows the story of notorious American rocker Bob Forrest, from his struggles with addiction in the drug-saturated 1980s LA music scene to his reinvention as an inspired drugs counsellor. Through a turbulent period of spiralling drug abuse we hear from friends about Forrest's journey from precocious young musical talent to lost soul risking HIV-infected needles. With first-hand recollections from his friends and musical peers Anthony Kiedis, Flea and Courtney Love, the film follows the chaotic and unexpected path of Bob's life, delivering a poignant yet never puritanical anti-drugs message. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Music and Film Festival.
