There are underappreciated musical legends, and then there is Graham Parker. If you're blanking on who he is, the singer/songwriter was featured in "This Is 40," with Paul Rudd's record executive hoping to revive this career and give him the spotlight he's long deserved. And now the musician is getting another an opportunity to shine with the documentary "Don't Ask Me Questions: The Unsung Life Of Graham Parker And The Rumor." And today we have a peek at the film.

Don’t Ask Me Questions

There are underappreciated musical legends, and then there is Graham Parker. If you're blanking on who he is, the singer/songwriter was featured in "This Is 40," with Paul Rudd's record executive hoping to revive this career and give him the spotlight he's long deserved. And now the musician is getting another an opportunity to shine with the documentary "Don't Ask Me Questions: The Unsung Life Of Graham Parker And The Rumor." And today we have a peek at the film.

Directed by Michael Gramaglia ("End Of The Century"), and featuring the participation of Judd Apatow, Bruce Springsteen and more, the documentary catches up with the 59 year-old Parker at a creative crossroads, finally allowing his music to be placed in commercials and TV shows, which may give him long overdue exposure. And in this exclusive clip, we learn how one of his better known songs, "Local Girls" (featured in Apatow's film), wound up in the hands of famed producer Jack Nitzsche, who manned the boards for Parker's Squeezing Out Sparks.

"Don't Ask Me Questions" is now available on iTunes and arrives on DVD on April 8th. Watch below.
