Penny Lane (Kate Hudson) adorns the cover of the "Almost Famous" DVD. In her breakthrough role, Kate played Penny, notorious rock groupie. Reporter William Miller, though very young, falls head over heels for her and learns many life lessons along the way.
The fictional band Stillwater, on the verge of making it big, is the focal point of "Almost Famous," the Cameron Crowe film about a teenage reporter assigned to cover them on the road for Rolling Stone.
William Miller: [on meeting Stillwater] Russell. Jeff. Ed. Larry. I really love your band. I think the song "Fever Dog" is a big step forward for you guys. I think you guys producing it yourselves, instead of Glyn Johns, was the right thing to do. And the guitar sound... is incendiary. Incendiary. Way to go. Russell Hammond: Well, don't stop there! Jeff Bebe: Yeah, come back here! I'm incendiary, too, man!
You, Aaron, are what it's all about. You're real. Your room is real. Your friends are real. Real, man, real. You know? Real. You're more important than all the silly machinery. Silly machinery. And you know it! In 11 years its going to be 1984, man. Think about that!
