    Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace and Music and What Happened, Miss Simone? are great.

    If you like Jazz at all, there's a great one on Charles Mingus. The guy is documenting him at a time when he's getting kicked out of his apartment. Shows what a psychopath and a music genius he was. He fires off a shotgun in his apartment at one point.

    Another great one (and I may be biased because I've worked with him a few times)... Steve Aoki's I'll Sleep When I'm Dead.

    For the EDM scene... Under the Electric Sky is an awesome one too

    I still like most of their stuff up to How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, they lost me after that though. I was absolutely crazy about them as a kid though. I still watch it every year or so, it's a really great documentary.
    I still watch it loads, I didn't know that 101 was about Highway 101 till I moved here though, now it's round the corner from where I live.

    Standing in the Shadow of Motown.... So good. And the covers of "Ain't to Proud to Beg" by Ben Harper, and "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" by Joan Osbourne were INCREDIBLE in it.

    I just learned that a documentary came out a couple years ago about Lowell George and Little Feat called Feats First: The Life & Music of Lowell George.

    Lowell was awesome, I’m bummed that I just learned of this. I’m watching this tonight! A bit of an underrated band IMO. Lowell was a phenomenal guitarist, and he was one of the influential guys that popularized slide guitar with rock music.

    It’s available on amazon prime video

    I love that movie but it makes me feel so grimy. Everyone is so coked out and jittery. You can smell the stale cigarettes and beer.

    Yeah man, id agree with that. The film has a certain “greasiness” to it. I think all of their interpersonal relationships were strained by that point, for a variety of reasons. You can definitely pick up on some of that in the movie. Awesome movie, but it’s kind of depressing like that.

    If I remember right, I think Richard Manuel killed himself not long after they filmed that.
