The 2011 hair-metal rockumentary “NOVA REX: AIN’T EASY BEING CHEESY” shares the hilarious true tales of the hair-metal, hard-working, harder-partying glam band NOVA REX with lots of music plus classic video footage and photographs spanning decades of live performances and wild backstage action. “NOVA REX: AIN’T EASY BEING CHEESY” captures the flamboyant era of late-1980s, early-1990s good-time party rock & roll and its crash into the inevitable wall of serious grunge. Guitarist JP Cervoni, bassist Kenny Wilkerson, vocalist Kevin Tetz and various music-industry insiders remember the times through funny and insightful interviews with director Dean Robinson.
