Rocco Refuses Rock Star Rowdiness

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot of actors want to be rock stars but Keifer Sutherland was happy being a roadie.

That’s one of the functions the 24 star did while on tour with Rocco DeLuca & The Burden, an indie band that records for Sutherland’s personal record label.

Sutherland’s experience selling T-shirts and being a roadie can be seen in I Trust You To Kill Me, a documentary debuting Saturday (Nov. 11) on VH-1.

But DeLuca thinks the most interesting part of the film may be what’s not on the screen.

He says part of the way the film came out is because the filmmakers were hoping to film some rock star cliches – that just aren’t him.

As a result, he closed himself off to the filmmakers’ prying camera. As he puts it, “I refused to do some things and didn’t really show my personality and style until later.”

DeLuca admits it’s hard for him to watch the film because, in his words, “There’s a lot of fighting but that may be what’s attracting people.”
