A band of blue skinned Humanoids from a distant planet are abducted and taken to Earth where their memories are altered and they produce music for a powerful producer. However a pilot from their planet, and a fan of their music receives word of the abduction and sets off to free them. He succeeds in breaking the mind control of all save one, his favorite artist. He's fatally wounded during pursuit by the producer's robotic henchmen. The woman, his favorite artist, is rescued and brought to him and he passes on. Seeking to recover their stolen memories the group travels to the producer's estate where they uncover his ancient past- his roots in alchemy and that he's been abducting artists from across space since Earth's antiquity. After foiling his plan for world domination through music they set out to take their memories from the studio, where they are actually kept. One of them is caught by security but the taser causes his blue alien form to materialize. Eventually, with restored memory, and what they gathered the band is able to obtain the aid of Earth in returning home. The spirit of the producer tries to stop them but the spirit of the man who came to save them stops him and they return. From their home world they broadcast music to Earth becoming an interstellar sensation.
