What are some good music docs on cable and/or Netflix?
I recently watched Quiet Riot: Frankie Banali Story again and it gets a little better each time. I am looking for some new ones to watch -- especially on hard rock.

I hear Keith Richards's new one is decent (but meh...enough of him). The Amy Winehouse doc sounds intriguing.

What else ya got?

The Rush documentary was great. That and Pearl Jam 20 were both on Netflix. Both are worth watching if they're still on there.

Since Lemmy is in the news, there's one called Lemmy that was pretty good. I don't know where you're gonna find it though. I believe VH1 aired it once, maybe they'll show it again soon.

re: What are some good music docs on cable and/or Netflix?
Finally... I've been waiting for someone to start a music doc thread, so this one can be retired (the OP would never come back to change the thread title)

Anyway I've got a thousand YouTube links I can post over the next few years, if you'll just change the title of this thread by taking off the "on cable and/or Netflix"

We can start in... Where else?:

Walking To New Orleans (1985)

Very rare doc (never on DVD) hosted by Jools Holland of the band Squeeze (and later host of his own talk show on British TV). Shot on location in LA and featuring appearances by Fats Domino, Lee Dorsey, Allen Toussaint, Dr John, The Neville Brothers, and Johnnie Allan (singing "Promised Land").

I recently watched the Muscle Shoals doc and the one about Big Star on Netflix. Both were very good.

Muscle Shoals is fantastic, as is Beware of Mr. Baker and History of the Eagles. The Keith Richards one was decent.

If you like The Grateful Dead, there's a good one about Bob Weir. I can't remember the name.

Who Is Harry Nilsson doc is good. There is a doc on Ginger Baker that is good too.

Searching For Sugar Man (streaming free on dailymotion.cfom)

Summary:

Though he faded into obscurity in the U.S., an early '70s musician known as Rodriguez became a huge hit in South Africa and was widely rumored to have died. Two obsessed fans set out to learn the man's true fate.

This one won an Academy Award for Best Documentary IIRC

Netflix has a doc on Bob Marley that is really solid, especially the beginning of the doc which focuses on creation of the Wailers. Has great interview footage of Bob, Bunny Wailer, Lee Perry, etc.

Also the one on Levon Helm is worth watching. It's a little like the Keith Richards one in that it focuses on him when he's older, in the year just prior to his death, as opposed to a comprehensive look at his career with the Band- but it's still entertaining.
