In January, I interviewed Dan Goodson, the Chico father of three autistic sons - two of who'd formed a rock band Jet Fuel Only.
Goodson encouraged his sons to start the band after seeing an article about the positive effects music can have on autistic children.
The band, featuring 13-year-old Sawyer and 12-year-old Evan, got to show off their rock chops on the "Rachael Ray Show."
Today, Jet Fuel Only, which also includes Emma Blankenship on bass and back-up singer Holly Rumiano, is still going strong, and Goodson tells us, the Lifetime cable network is considering a movie based on the family's experience.
In fact, a script writer's headed to Chico this week to interview the family and check out the band at a Monstros Pizza gig on Friday.
That show, set up by one of my personal indie rock heroes, singer-songwriter Barbara Manning, is free and all-ages. Jet Fuel Only will kick off the night at 8 p.m. and Manning, along with a few other acts, will also perform. Monstros is located at 628 W. Sacramento Ave. in Chico.
The Lifetime deal, Goodson adds, is just "in development" but the family's hopeful that Blueprint Studios, the production company interested in making the flick, will want to make good on its 12-month story option.
Dad adds that he's the one most excited about the prospect.
In typical rock star fashion, he says, the boys are more interested in going back to school and getting into the studio to record some songs.
