Greg Piper & The Tooners' ROCK & ROLL REHAB REALITY SHOW


The Rock & Roll Rehab television series is to VH1’s Behind The Music what The Colbert Report is to The O’Reilly Factor. Based on the fictitious twelve step program for the control of rock and roll, The Rock & Roll Rehab TV Series is a satirical and heavily illustrated look back at the history and time period of a specific genre of rock and roll as seen through the eyes of the members of the show’s guest band. The Rock & Roll Rehab Show is a half hour series that is part reality show, part documentary, part cartoon show and part talk show. 

Host Greg Piper (A Day In His Life, Just Imagine) is an aging Classic Rocker who has been there and seen it all and is here to help other rock and roll addicts tell their sad and sometimes tragic stories of lives wasted in the vein quest to live a rock and roll lifestyle. 

A musician and comedian, Piper interviews each week’s episode’s guest band as if their stories are much more interesting, exciting and entertaining than they actually are. He is assisted in this by Rock & Roll Rehab’s team of writers, animators and illustrators who don’t let the facts get in the way as they create a story based on the real band members but with a large degree of creative license. The band’s members play themselves in fictional stories and adventures either as live actors or as cartoon characters in animated shorts. Commercials are shown within the show pushing the guest band’s music and merchandise and the Rock & Roll Rehab Twelve Step Program For The Control Of Rock & Roll.

Based on the books, The Official Rock & Roll Rehab Handbook (amazon.com) and The Official Rock & Roll Rehab Members Guide (Kindle) by Neal Warner.

* The Rocker Shreds
Piper gets the rocker’s old band back together to overdub a new audio track to one of their old videos in order to get the band on Youtube with the other “Shred” videos thus elevating them into the ranks of Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen, Carlos Santana and other superstars.

* The Fantasy
Piper brings a rocker to a club to see a band that has been formed as a tribute band to his old band. The band gets girls in the audience screaming and a "record executive" signs the tribute band on the spot in front of the rocker (who may or may not get the joke). The musician portraying the rocker then gets pissed off and quits the tribute band in front of everyone.

* The Psychic
Piper takes the rocker to club to hear a young up and coming singer songwriter whose songs all seem to be rip-offs of the rocker’s old band’s songs with lyrics that mirror the rocker’s life all too closely.

* The Movie
Piper tells a rocker that a Hollywood production company is producing a movie based on the rocker’s old band’s story and they show him the trailer. In the trailer all the band members are portrayed as cool and good looking except for him, he’s portrayed as ugly, fat and stupid.

* The Comeback
Piper tells a rocker that he’s put together a new band to back him up so he can revive his career but the band turns out to be kids who makes the rocker look ancient.

* The Ringers
Piper brings a rocker to a concert in a park where a band is playing old cover tunes. A member of the band collapses onstage from illness or drugs and the band asks the audience if anyone can fill in. Piper pushes the rocker up on stage to fill in. The rocker thinks he’s a real good musician and the band seems to be real mediocre, playing old songs, but once he joins them they start playing Jazz Fusion versions of the tunes and the rocker has to keep up or do the Walk Of Shame.

* The Audition
Piper takes a rocker to a band rehearsal where they are auditioning new guitar players. The rocker is a real good musician but the guitar he’s given to play is rigged to go out of tune and play bad notes.

* I Want My MTV
Piper screens a rocker’s old music video for him making him think it’s being shown on MTV’s Pop Up Video Show. All the captions on the “Pop Ups” are humorously insulting to the rocker and the band.

* DNA Don’t Lie
Piper takes a rocker to the taping of a “Maury Provich” type of TV show where a woman claims she was a groupie for the rocker back in the day and she wants a paternity test to show he’s her baby’s father. The “baby” turns out to be thirty-five years old and looks and dresses exactly like the rocker did back in his band days.

* Here Comes The Judge
Piper insists a rocker deliver subpoenas to famous songwriters claiming copyright infringement against his original tunes. However, most of the songs he claims sound just like his were hits before he wrote his, some even before he was born.

* The Trouser Trout
Piper introduces a rocker to a groupie who used to make plaster casts of rock stars cocks and claims she made one of his. She then produces a plaster cock that looks diseased and deformed and the rocker has to somehow prove it’s not his.

* What Could Have Been Part 2
Piper interviews the old girlfriends of a rocker to find out what his life might have been like if he had quit his band and settled down with her.
