BREAKFAST WITH BRAD.



A bloody mary? Some breakfast? Suite yourself. But this is one morning sit-down you do not want to miss. Last week one of the pinnacle icons of entertainment around here, Brad Wesley (played by Ben Gazzara), left us at the seasoned age of 81. He fell victim to the same illness our brother Patrick Swayze did less than three years ago, pancreatic cancer.



If you're reading this at the time it was posted, it's Sunday morning. Do your part in remembering this big screen greatness by firing up some quick morning medicine and have a seat to watch the greatest movie of all time. Don't follow Dalton's lead in the above scene by refusing his villainous breakfast offer. Sit down, kick your feet up, rest your tan slacks on the sofa and pop in Roadhouse for a proper 758th viewing. After all, we owe it to Wesley. Let's not forget, this is the man who grew up on the streets of Chicago. He brought the mall here, brought the 711 here, brought the Photomat here and most importantly JC Penney is coming here because of HIM.

*WORLD PREMIERE RELEASE* - At last, for the first time ever Michael Kamen's score to Roadhouse is available to purchase! This score has been stored in vaults since 1989 but is finally here...newly remixed and mastered in superb stereo sound. Buy it now while quantities remain through Intrada and stream one of the tracks below.

The Kamen score to RoadHouse has been a long time coming.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected. Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.
