SuperMensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon Review


Excellent

For his lively film directing debut, Mike Myers (aka Austin Powers) traces the remarkable life of his friend, the almost too-likeable music manager Shep Gordon. A mensch is a really nice guy, and this film documents how Gordon has created a makeshift family of loyal friends around him, even though he's never had a proper family of his own. It's an engaging movie that reminds audiences that the most important thing in life is certainly not fame.

Shep Gordon came to Los Angeles as a young man and happened to stay in the same hotel where Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison were hanging out. Quickly getting involved in their blurry world of drugs and money, Shep won over everyone he met simply because of his integrity and generosity. As a manager, he lived the high-life with high-powered girlfriends like Sharon Stone (who introduced him to Buddhism) and a Playboy Playmate wife. He helped Groucho Marx sort out his finances, and worked with lifelong pal Alice Cooper to create Cooper's iconic on-stage persona. And he's still considered one of the best fix-it men in the business. His home in Maui is a bolt-hole for any of his celebrity buddies who are trying to escape the limelight.

The film is assembled with a snappy rhythm that catches a sense of Shep's fast-paced lifestyle. It's packed with great film clips, hilarious home movies and even a few re-enactments. But the best stories are told by the starry interviewees who clearly adore Shep and recount riotous backstage anecdotes about their experiences with him, as well as his larger-than-life personality and unstoppable libido. The most jaw-dropping story is about how he ramped up clean-cut Canadian singer Anne Murray's reputation and career by having her photographed with super-cool lothario Teddy Pendergrass. But with a life this high-flying, Shep has never found a life partner or had his own children. Although he has become a father figure to his ex-wife's kids, essentially raising them himself.

New Fleetwood Mac Music on the Way, to be Performed on Tour


Fleetwood Mac Stevie Nicks Mick Fleetwood Lindsey Buckingham

Fleetwood Mac yesterday confirmed dates for the UK leg of their tour to wide spread excitement, despite the high price of tickets, and that excitement is only set to rise with the news that they will be performing new music at the shows.

As the BBC reports, the eponymous drummer of the band, Mick Fleetwood, spoke to BBC Radio 6 about the possibility or recording new music and his long term plans for a potential new studio album. "I hope there's a demand for it," Mick said. With such an interest in their latest news of reforming and returning to tour, how could he question it? He and Lindsey Buckingham, the ex-boyfriend of Stevie Nicks, wrote a few songs described as a 'calling card' for the female singer without whom Fleetwood Mac just wouldn't be the same. 

"We wanted her to know we wanted to make some new music and we had some great songs," he said."But her mother died not too long after and it wasn't the time for her to do any singing, so we dropped it." Just when all was thought lost, she surprised the boys: "[R]ecently she's sung on three of them and recorded one original song of hers, so we're going to mix these songs down and there'll be something that we will play hopefully on stage."

Dave Grohl has entered middle age, and as such it is time for the Foo Fighters frontman to branch out away from music as is the norm for the rock elite. With Sound City, Grohl has don't exactly this with his insightful look into one of Los Angeles' hidden relics, Sound City Recording Studio.

Attached as director, it is hard to think that anyone would be too enthused about going to see the film were anyone other than Dave Grohl signed up for the documentary, but this is far more than just a vehicle for Grohl to further demonstrate how cool he is. Lovingly referred to as a "sh*thole" throughout, the documentary is like an encyclopaedia of the indie world, with some big names such as Paul McCartney, James Brown and Mick Fleetwood appear alongside such underground heroes as Frank Black, Rivers Cuomo and Trent Reznor.

Grohl has recently been doing the rounds promoting the film and in a recent interview for 'The Nerdist' podcast, the former Nirvana drummer also opened up on the traumatic split of the trio. He tells the podcast, "It was heartbreaking. We were fucked up by what happened. So it was just, 'I gotta keep playing music, I gotta keep playing music.'"
