17 of the Greatest Music Biopics of All Time
The Buddy Holly Story
This music biopic has pretty much the same ending as La Bamba: the fated plane crash that took both Holly and Valens out of the world. But the lead up to that point in time was much different for Holly. The film follows Holly’s life from a teen rocker in Texas to worldwide success with his band The Crickets. Eventually, his persona begins to overshadow the band and leads to their breakup. Holly’s solo career lends itself to tons of touring, which in the end becomes the death of him. The 1978 film is still praised as one of the best music biopics and holds a 100% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes!
