Valentine's Night at Depot

William makes something of his love of rock & roll by writing album reviews for a local underground newspaper. His work attracts the attention of the editor of renegade rock magazine Creem, who takes William under his wing and gives him his first professional writing assignment covering a Black Sabbath concert. While William is unable to score an interview with the headliners, the opening act, Stillwater, are more than happy to chat with a reporter, and William's piece on the group in Creem gains him an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine. He joins Stillwater on tour, where he becomes enamoured with a groupie travelling with the band.
