    No Aaliyah? I’d love to see her story, especially if the truth were told about her relationship with R. Kelly.

    Pretty good list. I espically agree with Prince, James Brown, and Quincy Jones. But I agree what about Aaliyah? Bob Marley? Tammi Terrell?

  • Really???

    Oh, I would love to see one on Luther…

  • Really???

    Prince would be the ultimate. However, it is doubtful. While some have written books & such…most of the credible people who have been in & out of his life have had to sign confidentiality agreements and he probably won’t give up that kind of info about himself 😦

    Some musicians do not need a biopic. A documentary would be better. Many biopic either sugar coat or over dramatize certain issues in an artists life.
