Roadie is a 1980 film directed by Alan Rudolph about a truck driver who becomes a roadie for a traveling rock and roll show. The film stars Meat Loaf and marks his first starring role in a film. There are also cameo appearances by musicians such as Roy Orbison, Blondie, Hank Williams Jr. and Alice Cooper. The film was marketed with the tagline “Bands make it rock…Roadies make it roll.”
