Happy Monday! For this week's edition of Music Monday, I wanted to share one of my go-to Netflix recommendations - Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.
Supermensch is a wonderful documentary that chronicles the life and legend of Shep Gordon, a celebrated manager of all types of artists. Gordon is probably best known for managing musicians such as Alice Cooper and Teddy Pendergrass, but he alsomanaged many actors (Mike Myers produced the documentary) and was the inventor of the celebrity chef.
Gordon shares a wide range of stories throughout the documentary, including how he got into artist management by happenstance. Generally speaking, artist managers have the stereotype of being rude, crass and selfish for themselves and their artist - but Shep Gordon shatters all of those stereotypes. He's been extremely successful in the entertainment industry, while still maintaining strong relationships and respect.
If you give it a watch, let me know what you think!
