Denis Leary is a rock'n'roll fan.Decades of his own brand of stardom as an actor and stand-up comic have found him rubbing elbows with rock gods like Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler. On his stand-up comedy tours, he brings along a band of "real rock'n'roll musicians and session guys," he says proudly, with whom he performs just for fun.Leary plays Johnny Rock, leader of a New York band called The Heathens that released one album in the early 1990s, then collapsed in a heap of crazy excesses and raging egos. The band is notorious for its riotous flash-in-the-pan-ness, while the burnt-out Johnny, now 50, is angling for a comeback.Johnny is a protective dad, yet no less competitive and willing to exploit her.That posed more of a challenge to Leary than expected. That's what Leary learned filming full-strength Johnny Rock at a time-capsule concert, and he knew it wasn't something he could keep up every week.
