"Scenes from the Goldmine" is a 1987 drama film directed by Marc Rocco, starring Catherine Mary Stewart, Cameron Dye, and Steve Railsback. The film revolves around a rock band's rise to fame and its members' personal struggles with drug addiction, creative differences, and relationships. The film opens with the band rehearsing in a rundown rehearsal space, trying to put together a new song for their upcoming album. We meet the band members: lead singer Nick (Cameron Dye), bassist Jeremy (Paul Bartel), guitarist Randy (Alex Rocco), and drummer Kyle (John Calvin). The band's manager, Davis (Steve Railsback), is also present at the rehearsal, trying to get the band to focus on their music and forget their personal problems.

Nick, the band's charismatic frontman, is struggling with drug addiction and emotional issues that affect his performance and relationships with the other band members. Jeremy, the band's co-founder and songwriter, is frustrated with Nick's behavior and his reluctance to collaborate on new music. Randy, the lead guitarist, is also struggling with drug addiction but is in love with a girl he met at a concert. Kyle, the drummer, is the only one who seems to have his life together and is the voice of reason in the band.

As the band prepares for their upcoming tour, tensions rise between Nick and Jeremy, resulting in a physical altercation. Davis tries to mediate the situation but realizes that the band is falling apart at the seams. In a desperate attempt to salvage the tour, Davis invites Nick's ex-girlfriend, Suzi (Catherine Mary Stewart), to join the band as a backup singer.

Suzi, a talented musician in her own right, injects new life into the band and helps them find their creative spark. However, her presence creates new tensions between Nick and Jeremy, as they both have feelings for her. The band's drug use also spirals out of control, leading to disastrous consequences for the band's performance and interpersonal relationships.

Throughout the film, the audience is treated to various scenes of the band performing their music, interspersed with scenes of their personal lives and struggles. The film also features cameo appearances by several famous musicians, including Adam Ant, Courtney Love, and Fishbone.

"Scenes from the Goldmine" is a poignant and realistic portrayal of the rock and roll lifestyle, highlighting both the glamour and the darkness of the music industry. The film's gritty cinematography and powerful performances from its cast make it a must-watch for fans of music and drama.
