Hollywood Portrayals of Rock Stars: The Ramones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix + More

Over the years, rock stars have infiltrated fans’ lives not just through their music, but also through the big screen. And we’re not talking about concert films or documentaries, either. Sometimes, a band or an artist makes such a big impact that it persuades film directors and actors to tell their story.

Being the music fans that we are, we spent some time going through those stories. The end result?

In the photo gallery above, we’ve compiled some of our favorite shots of actors portraying some of our favorite rock stars — from Bob Dylan being portrayed by multiple people in ‘I’m Not There’ to Outkast‘s Andre Benjamin handling Jimi Hendrix duties in ‘Jimi: All By My Side.’

What’s your favorite Hollywood portrayal of a rock star? Let us know in the comments section below!
