The story of an iconic guitar player who has lived a life of extreme highs and lows. After losing the publishing rights of his own songs and combatting dangerous addictions, the legendary W.A.S.P. guitarist is shown starting over from scratch while living at his mother-in-law's in Cannes, France. He is now ready to take on Europe with his new band. As we follow him along, he meets many fans and proves that he still is the showman he was as a young and famous rockstar. This musical journey draws parallel stories of the rise, fall and rebirth of Chris Holmes with archives, live performances, interviews and behind-the-scene footage.
Every symopsis I have seen makes the claim Holmes moved back in with his MIL which was not really the case. Obviously done to drum up interest. The doc itself is more promo film than anything else. Mean Man was a WASP song and the moniker of Holmes band. Overall, a yawner that contains the occassional laugh or two.
