I have been out of touch for a while. I am neck deep in promoting Mohawk Bomb Records' new compilation, shooting Soulfound's farewell documentary and getting married. Alas, I am back with a new post that I have been wanting to do for a while in which I get to flex both my music and movie muscles.
Here are my Top 5 actor's portrayals of some of music's most legendary characters. There are dozens of great performances that I have not included that are great portrayals of musicians on film. Many of the best ones are not even about real bands like Almost Famous, The Commitments, That Thing You Do!. The point here is to show how foolish it can be to have a musicians as a role model and how entertaining/inspiring it can be to see what some folks have gone through to become household names. Enjoy.
