The club’s biggest appeal was that parental watching was a bit more than nonexistent and the soda was on the house. Feldman said he heard a lot about the place and decided to visit and loved it. Many famous teenage sensations were also regulars at the club at the time.

These two were teenage sensations of their day and since they shared the same first name, they were affectionately referred to as “The Coreys”.
It turns out Haim had done an interview previously in 2004 that cast a dark shadow over Alphy’s character. In the interview, Haim Hoffman described with some selected explanations. He was basically saying the casting director was far from a good person and had lost all respect for him. This interview was published by Vice in 2012 and helped make Feldman’s 2017 presentation much more credible.
