The other night I watched Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. It told the interesting story of a very well-connected entertainment manager. Gordon started off in the 60s and rose to prominence through representing Alice Cooper. He resorted to lots of pranks and stunts to get publicity for his clients, and his instincts were often spot on.

Supermensch is full of celebrity talking heads speaking about what a great guy he is, and I came away liking him. I guess I would have liked more social context, more about the history of the music industry. But it was pretty good.
