Tiny Dancer - Almost Famous


One of my favourite scenes from the movie "Almost Famous".

The film is loosely based on writer & director Cameron Crowe's real life experiences
writing for Rolling Stone magazine, touring with bands such as The Who, Led Zeppelin,
The Eagles & Lynyrd Skynyrd.

In this scene of the movie, the relationships in
the band "Stillwater" had become fractured, with egos and tempers flaring.
Guitarist Russell spends a night away from the band partying, and receives a
frosty reception when he's collected by the tour bus the following morning.
Elton John's song "Tiny Dancer" indirectly reconnects the band and clears the air.

I think of this particular scene every time I hear this tune on the radio.

    1. It's a really easy film to watch. I am half way through reading 'I'm with the Band - Confessions of a Groupie" by Pamela Des Barres who was one of the inspirations for the character of Penny Lane in the movie. Great read.
