Least Likely Musical Biopics

Saw the new biopic Control, which tells the story of Ian Curtis, singer of the British band Joy Division (see my review here). It got the Kamper mulling over what other bands of that era may be deserving of a full on musical biopic.

(Props to Dan, Mat and Susan for their suggestions.)

  3. Mat, can’t believe I didn’t think of Frankie! As for Wham! my money is on a bona fide, real world George Michael biopic in the not-so-distant (dystopian) future.
