Question: Are the characters in this movie based on actual people? Is it a true story or a fictional story that was entirely possible?

Chosen answer: The movie was written by Tom Hanks and some what reflects the music industry during that time period. It is not about a real band, but shows how a lot of bands were treated at the time and how quickly you can rise and how you can fall even faster.
