Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Yesterday I wrote about the Super Duper Alice Cooper rockumentary. Today’s post is a companion reference about Alice Cooper’s manager, Shep Gordon and yes they are both in each of these documentary films. 😉

I was reading about Mike Myers (Austin Powers, SNL fame) curious to know what was going on with him when I learned about his latest project, a documentary called, Supermensch: The Legend of Shep GordonI Googled to find out more about, Mike Meyers, the film and its subject Shep Gordon. It turns out Mike Myers and Shep Gordon are long time friends and this documentary is a labor of mutual respect.

According to IMDb:

In his directorial début, Mike Myers documents the astounding career of Hollywood insider, the loveable Shep Gordon, who fell into music management by chance after moving to LA straight out of college, and befriending Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. Shep managed rock stars such as Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and Alice Cooper, and later went on to manage chefs such as Emeril Lagasse, ushering in the era of celebrity chefs on television. Stuffed with fantastic archive footage the film traces Shep’s transformation from the 1970’s hedonist to today’s practicing Buddhist yearning for a family of his own.

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon will be available in cinemas on July 18th. Cool!
