Favorite Movies of Musicians?


Recommended Posts

I never heard any member of Zeppelin mention a favorite movie, but it doesn't matter who.... I just heard John Fogerty mention some great movies (The Devil and Daniel Webster and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) and thought to myself, "The best usually love the best" - and might find some great recommendations this way, but I think you can tell more about someone's movie interests than their music.. I'd say the same for comedy.

John Lennon mentioned he was a fan of Orson Welles and Fellini.. Once mentioned "Citizen Kane".

Roger Waters liked "El Topo".

I've been meaning to see it, but I've never been a fan with no script, lol.. (This is how it was described to me by a friend)..

I read in one of my many Zep books that Robert Plant "liked to smoke pot and read JR Tolken" (don't remember if there was a mention of movies).

I did a quick search of that page, surprised there was no mention how Metallica bought the movie rights to "Johnny Got His Gun" (for the music video of "One") which is a fine movie!

Read yesterday (and before many times) that John Lennon loved "The Lost Weekend" directed by Billy Wilder.. I loved Ray Milland's performance in that one.

It's right up there with 'Days Of Wine & Roses.'

One of Paul Stanley's favorite films is 'Zorba The Greek.' Mine too.

I just read that the movie that left the most profound impact on Jim Morrison was "Ana-ta-Han" which was also directed by his teacher at UCLA - Josef von Sternberg... It's a great movie, I'd give it a 10/10... Luckily for all you movie lovers, it's on YouTube in full.. Really experimental and original movie.

Is this thread about which movie about musicians is your favorite?

Or what are the favorite movies of some musicians?


My favorite movie about a musician is Amadeus


I initially meant favorite movies of musicians we know.. Especially Zep members!
