Quick! Who is Ozzy Osbourne’s drummer? Who plays bass for Rob Zombie? You can name major performers like Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper and Billy Joel, but can you name the people who provide the backing sound? Hired Gun, a one-night only special from Fathom Events, is a documentary about the music industry’s biggest unknowns— the professional performers who fill holes in a band when the regular quits or gets sick. Their story is nomadic, oftentimes showing up the day of a show, experiencing the thrill of performing in front of an arena full of screaming fans, and then disappearing back into obscurity. Now some of the biggest hired guns in the biz are getting their due with this fascinating tribute featuring interviews with some of the most well known names in music.
