Have Tissues Ready…

The season for rock & roll biopics is in full-affect and it all started with the massive world-wide success of the long-awaited Freddie Mercury biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Now, several rock biopics are either about to be released or are still in production. Mötley Crüe just dropped the trailer for their long-awaited biopic ‘The Dirt’ and others are being made for artists such as Prince, David Bowie, and John Lennon among others.

Then again, we all know which one is really going to steal the show, and that’s the one about the man, the myth, the legend, the one and only Elton John.
