Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon
I'm putting this documentary in the music section because Shep Gordon's involvement in music tremendous. Gordon's involvement with music began when as a young hippie he checked into the Hollywood Landmark Hotel. He took some drugs and later heard a woman screaming. Assuming she was being raped, he ran downstairs and separated the couple. The woman punched him in the face. The next day he was at the pool and the woman introduced herself. She was Janice Joplin. Sitting with her was Jimi Hendrix, who later suggested that because Gordon in Jewish, he should become an talent agent. So he did. This is how Gordon's long and colorful journey as a talent agent began.
