No it's about studio musicians that i never knew wrote the soundtrack of my life.

Ah! Sounds interesting.

I am not sure of the rating number here but I would say 10/10.

Very well done. Lots of interviews with friends, family, and Janis herself. Lots of photos. It didn't focus on her death like others I have seen about her. In fact, her death only filled the last few minutes...it was the story of her life.

And the concert footage was amazing. I heard her perform songs that I had never heard before. It was really, really good. I may watch it again. I have long been a fan...I was blown away by this documentary.

I saw it in a local theater. Most excellent. One of the few really good documentaries on her done.

I'm not sure if it's still streaming but there's the Eagles doc that's amazing, a Tom Petty one that's also incredibly well done (never been a huge TP fan but if the Heartbreakers are on the radio I won't flip the channel either).

There is also one on Hendrix that's really well done too.

The doc on Wrecking Crew was excellent.

20 feet from stardom (think that's what it's called) was another good one.

There's also one I nearly passed over Muscle Shoals (sp?) that was completely fascinating. It's about the recording studio, which I didn't think would be interesting at all but totally was.

There was another one on Hitsville (Motown).

I have watched the Eagles one twice. There are a couple good ones on Marley...one I watched a few years ago was really good. 20 Feet was also really good.

I have hesitated on the Tom Petty one. I like him okay but he is not a major favorite of mine. I may check it out and maybe the Muscle Shoals one too.

I like documentaries about musicians and bands.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Yeah, I mean I like Tom Petty, but never been a huge fan...the documentary was really interesting... it's super long but that said, it was wonderfully detailed...it wasn't overdone at all.

There was another one on Rush that was really good too.

Also, not my thing at all really but the documentary on Lemmy was just awesome. It's really about him and his love of music, that was rather surprising to me, because I was never really much into Motörhead.

Peaky fucking Blinders. I'm telling you, you will not be disappointed.

Am I the only one who has watched it?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I saw a few episodes but I couldn't get into it.

The above is great, as is The Wrecking crew.

And if you have not seen this, you must. It's on youtube.

It is but it isn't. It's about a poor family in Birmingham and their rise to power.

The acting is excellent, one of those shows that has you rooting for the hero, who is also the protagonist. You feel conflicted wanting Tommy to come out on top.

It's a gangster show, but much better than the standard fair. It gets pretty gnarly.

It does start slow, but gets really good.
