hey riverotter...i have to first say what a great list you have started...you have actual rock stars on your list and not madonna or beyonce...congrats for that alone...

as far as my vote goes...all of these would be interesting...but...the two keiths would definitely be in a tie for first...

keith moon is a biopic in himself ...and keith richard is the ultimate rock-n-roll musician...so...the choice is really about the manic vs. the music...in which i would go with keith richards...

excellent poll riv...peace...

Thanks, but I don't really understand your reason for excluding Neil Peart?

I put his name in IMDB search and nothing came up. Nothing to link him to

Oh. Are you sure you spelled his first name correctly? It's Neil, not Neal. :)

i believe it is supposed to be individual rock stars...not pop bands...

Alright then, Steve Perry.  Also, I wouldn't consider Journey 'pop' - they weren't always as heavy as other rock bands, but they were technically rock, I think.

I'm up to 15 now with Alice Cooper, Sting, Patti Smith, and Lou Reed. Is that enough?

The limit for polls is 35, so you still have a lot of room for additions.

the Beatles have had a biopic, and Lennon had one - at least about his later life. I thought about them, though.

OK 32 names. I think that's enough!

Could you please try adding Neil Peart again?

once again...i second neil peart...

he was working in his dad's appliance store...auditioned for rush when their first drummer had to leave...brilliant mind...avid reader...started writing lyrics that propelled the band to their superstar status...then several decades later...after all the touring and fame...tragedy strikes twice...within months of each other he loses both his wife and his daughter...turns his back on success...hops on his motorcycle and anonymously hits the road in contemplation...his bandmates stand by him all the way...and when he's ready...if he wants to come back...he's welcome...

he finally comes back with a few more brilliant albums and tours to give and then finally has to call it a day...and the band...being who they are...feel like their is no band without him...

now tell me that isn't a story worthy of a biopic...

rocky-o, for some reason your comment was caught in the spam filter. Since it has no links... That's an odd case.

i would say about half the comments i receive from imdb come in the spam filter...that's why i never delete anything from spam till i go thru it all...
