In the ‘90s there was a rock band called The Heathens. Led by Johnny Rock, they were legendary but the day their first album dropped, they broke up. Now, twenty-five years later, they have a chance to get it together and take another shot at the big time, but with one big difference – Rock is relegated to songwriting and the band is being led by the daughter he never knew he had.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (FX, Thursdays, 10/9C) is a full throttle exploration of the rock & roll lifestyle – then and now. It’s also funny and hell and surprisingly poignant. It has the potential to be the best thing Denis Leary has ever done – and I’m including The Ref and Rescue Me in that assessment.
FX’s Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll looks like it’s going to be another raunchy, quality series starring Denis Leary – but it comes with it’s own music video – Die Tryin’ – which could even be a hit. (Let’s talk authenticity, people! )
Check out Die Tryin’ and four more tasty clips for Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, premiering on Tuesday, July 16th on FX.
In Sex & Drugs & & Rock & Roll, Denis Leary stars as Johnny Rock, leader of The Heathens – a legendary New York band from the ’90s. A band that partied so hard that ‘Keith Richards thought they should slow down.’
