In an interview with the Courier Post, the longtime singer and leader of the Asbury Jukes recalls his band's performance in Joan Micklin Silver's 1977 movie about a fledgling alternative weekly in Boston. According to Johnny, Jeff Goldblum, Bruno Kirby and the other then-unknown actors watched the Jukes' performance and said, "'Wow, I wish I was in a rock 'n' roll band.' And we're sittin' there watchin' them thinkin', 'Wow, we wish we were big star actors.'"
