Today, the estate of guitar god Jimi Hendrix came out against an upcoming Andre 3000-starring biopic, effectively denying the project original music or the necessary copyrights. As disappointing as this news may be, it’s another in a long line of delays for musical biopics (see: Jerry Garcia, Marvin Gaye, and Janis Joplin).

If legal issues and other mitigating factors weren’t a concern, what famous musician’s life would you want to see receive the Hollywood treatment? Would you want a film on the life of someone iconic, like Diana Ross or Neil Young? Or would focusing on more modern-day stars like Beyoncé or Kings of Leon get your butt into the theater? Let us know what band/singer you’d be most interested to see up on the silver screen and how you’d like to see their tale go down.
