Guys, Guys....Please, this is the TELE Forum. It has to be Albert Collins, 'Adventures in Babysitting' as correctly stated by 'Frank'n'censed'. I think 'KWal' tried to make the right choice, but he said 'Albert King'.

chicago plays bikers believably.

vanishing point
delaney and bonnie are awesome
Ahhh, memories. I saw Vanishing Point when I was about thirteen. It is the first movie I saw with a nude young woman. She was riding a Honda type motorcycle in the desert. At thirteen it left quite an impression. Later thinking back the scene had no reason to be in the movie. Thirteen year old me was glad it was there.

Not an amazing movie per se, but some great music and dance scenes in this one:



It's a personal favorite...or one of them.

Others mentioned Tom Waits.

He was great in 7 Psychopaths and had a very funny bit in The Fisher King.

My favourite brief, non-speaking cameo is Joe Walsh in The Blues Brothers. He's the inmate that jumps on the table during "Jailhouse Rock".

Oh yeah, and Henry Rollins was really good in Sons of Anarchy.

Huey Lewis in Back to the Future?
Phil Collins in Hook

Two bits of random knowledge I can't help mentioning when I watch them!

Its probably been mentioned a dozen times already because of how amazing it is, but I'll say it again. Mick Jagger's performance in the film Freejack was magnificent.

Songwriter, with Willie and Kris Kristofferson. Rip Torn is great! One of my favorite movies.

John Doe is the lead in Roadside Prophets, very quirky, funny film, lotsa great cameos w/ other musicians and pop icons.

Airheads, one of Adam Sandler's early movies, has God as Himself.

Anybody ever seen Beer For My Horses? A Toby Keith vanity project, I guess, I really like it. Low budget, low brow, and it knows it. They really put a lot of heart into it. Willie is perfectly cast, and Rodney Carrington is good as Toby's partner.

"Round Midnight" has a "Who's Who" of Jazz Hall of Famers as well as Legends.
This film won everything at Cannes in 1986.
It's an amazing story based on Truth about recovery and redemption.

Another one I love is "Dingo" starring Miles Davis as Billy Cross.

One of them is Vengo, by Tony Gatlif. The who is who of flamenco appears in this great movie.
