Long live rock, I need it every night

Little hand says it's time to rock and roll.

In Memoriam

I dig how this intro has nothing but a mysterious audio track - no speaking - just an ax grinding away while we learn who each of these rocker/dancer/gang banger/hairdressers (?) are. Bandit. Gaucho. Tracy as Tracy.

Obviously Dirty Dancing was Swayze's best work. But I'll forever celebrate his work in Red Dawn, the Blue & Gray North & South miniseries, Road House, and Ghost (though Whoppi Goldberg carried that film). I know, I know, Point Break. Gotta mention Point Break.

Wow, Brian Tochi was in that? Good thing the show didn't succeed, otherwise Police Academies 3 and 4 wouldn't have been anywhere near as good.

I see you're familiar with Tochi's work, Steve. Let's not forget about his excellent portrayal of Asian geek, Toshiro Takashi, in Revenge of the Nerds.

We should use the same names as the Renegades. I call dibs on Bandit. Potsy you can be Dragon and Sacklunch is JT. Jimbromski, you can be Dragon. Or Tracey. The choice is yours.
