Before Celebrity Rehab's Bob Forrest became a counselor to the stars, Forrest was a heroin addict and frontman of influential L.A. band Thelonious Monster who went to rehab 20 times. Now his story has been captured in the new documentary, Bob and the Monster, which includes testimonials from his friends Courtney Love and Anthony Kiedis, among others.
On October 27, SIFF is hosting a special screening of the documentary at the SIFF Cinema at the Uptown, to include a Q&A with Forrest and director Keirda Bahruth. AND there will be a rare performance by Thelonious Monster.
It's definitely a night to mark on the calendar. Bring your opera glasses. If only a fraction of Forrest's Seattle pals make it out to the show, it's going to be a good one for star-gawking!
