Biopic you would like to see or to recommend?

Postby oldnewwaver » Sun Jul 21, 2019 3:10 pm

There seems to be a few musical bio pics of late that have been successful, what band or artist would you like to see as a biopic?

I think David Bowie would be a great choice since he had some many interesting "changes" in his career even to the point at his death.

I read Chrissie Hynde's auto biography and she had a very interesting life on how her life led into music plus dealing with the death of her 2 guitarists, etc.

i know there has been biopics on Joy Division , Ian Dury, The Runaways and some cool docs (one on Spandau Ballet was great)

What do you think?

Not quite new wave related but I'd love to see a Syd Barret biopic
