The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete!
Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. It's a safe, happy Ga Ga World. Unless you're a rebel. Unless you want to rock. On Planet Mall all instruments are banned. The Company computers generate the tunes and everyone downloads them. It is an age of Boy Bands and Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance, hits are scheduled years in advance.
Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.
But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and wrote their own songs. The call that time, The Rhapsody.
Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see.
Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe and draw it from stone.
Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man?
He's just a poor boy. From a poor family.
But the Ga Ga cops are also looking for Galileo and if they get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye.
Who is Galileo? Where is the Hairy One's lost axe?
Where is the place of the living rock?
Anywhere the wind blows . . .
