The washed-up ex-lead of a ’90s-era nearly-successful band shows his daughter Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) his funny, impromptu reproduction of Radiohead and Morrissey in this trailer for the new FX comedy series “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.” The show tells the story of this lead singer — aptly named “Johnny Rock” (Denis Leary) — of a fictional band called The Heathens which is, some 25 years later, attempting to make a historic comeback. 

Complications naturally arise due to Johnny’s outrageous ego (and his daughter’s talent eclipsing his own) as he struggles to fulfill his dream of being a rockstar. The series will premiere on FX on July 16.
