The Decline of Western Civilization Final Released On DVD and Blu-Ray
I just interviewed director Penelope Spheeris (who also directed Wayne's World) for Australia's Beat Magazine, and I asked Spheeris if she has been surprised by the career or life trajectories of Decline II's stars. "I didn't think Chris Holmes would end up happily married in France, having stopped drinking," Spheeris said. "Dave Mustaine's trajectory has been nice and constant. I'm surprised he ended up a Christian but I'm glad for him if that works for him."
As for the band Odin, who were touted as the next big thing by club owner Bill Gazzarri in the film, "I've heard the guys from Odin feel like they can never live it down. One of them says it'll be on his headstone: it'll just say "Odinů Odinů Odinů"
As for London's Nadir D'Priest, "He's living the high life in Vegas. He hasn't told me this but judging from his car and his $2,000 boots he's got a very rich girlfriend. That's just me guessing because I don't know where the record sales are coming from! I saw Ozzy the other night and he seems to be doing fine. He's getting older but so am I." Read more here.
