There are some people who were just made for fame, and legendary promoter/manager Shep Gordon is one of them. His story of moving to Los Angeles and running into Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison at the same time is the stuff of mythology, and his career managing some of the biggest names ever is epic. Now, Mike Myers (yes, Austin Powers himself) is telling the story in the entertaining documentary "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon," and the first trailer is here to give you a good idea of what to expect.

Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon

There are some people who were just made for fame, and legendary promoter/manager Shep Gordon is one of them. His story of moving to Los Angeles and running into Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison at the same time is the stuff of mythology, and his career managing some of the biggest names ever is epic. Now, Mike Myers (yes, Austin Powers himself) is telling the story in the entertaining documentary "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon," and the first trailer is here to give you a good idea of what to expect.

Featuring appearances from close friends (Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Arnold, Sammy Hagar), clients (who ranged from Anne Murray to Alice Cooper) and more, the documentary is pretty terrific look at Gordon's career, also chronicling his personal life, which was far less flashy than his public persona. Making for some of the more touching portions of the doc, 'Supermensch' also shows a lonelier side of Gordon, who didn't find complete fulfillment until much later in life.

Filled with terrific anecdotes, "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon" is one we called "involving, satisfying and even moving." So be sure to check it out when it lands on June 6th. Watch below. [FirstShowing]
