Walk the Line is my favorite.
Ray Charles movie was also good.
School of Rock was good silly fun.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch...this one surprised me. it was actually very good.
The Dewey Cox Story...lots of double entendres and entertaining.
I saw one quite a while ago about a start up band. maybe British or Australian. The Replacements? no, The ...darn I forget.
The Doors wasn't too bad.

there is a movie/ docu about a New York Doll member that was really good. Caine was the player. don't remember the title.

Sounds like the Irish band movie The Commitments where the band plays 60s soul, except Motown, music.

For me Benny Goodman story. Even today I read about musicians who really express themselves through their music it reminds me of that movie. As I understand it they downplayed how tough a boss Mr. Goodman was.

School of Rock is fun.

"Stardust" - the David Essex version where he dies of an OD at the end.

Includes top class performances by Adam Faith and Larry Hagman, and the music was done by a certain Dave Edmunds. Followed up "That'll Be The Day", which featured Ringo Starr, Billy Fury and Keith Moon.

The Last Waltz -- Documentary about The Band and the first time they said farewell. Classic concert and interview flick that shows the good and the bad of quite a number of our faves.

Help and Hard Day's Night -- if I've gotta tell you ...

The Buddy Holly Story -- Gary Busey as Buddy. Just fun ... until the end.

La Bomba -- Lou Diamond Phillips as Ritchie Valens. Ditto.

Almost Famous

What's wrong with Purple Rain, the sequel was the deadly movie. Purple Rain made Prince arguably the third biggest pop/rock star of the era after Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen.
