We discuss the inspiration behind the writing of St. Elmo’s Fire and how it generated millions for charity. Parr also contributed songs to other films, including Three Men and a Baby, Near Dark, and the Running Man. John has just released a new drama, documentary “Unconquered” which tells the story of two solders who were severely injured. It follows their incredible journey out of the darkness through the love of family, the bond of brotherhood and their shared passion….Sport.
