    I love watching documentaries about bands and musicians. I'll watch them even if I'm not a fan, which I've done in the past just because I like to watch them so much. So recommend me some good'ns!

    If you're not easily offended with some religious content, the best documentary I've ever seen is "New York Doll", the story of Arthur "Killer" Kane. I never listened to the New York Dolls and never new anything about them really, but this documentary is outstanding but sad.

    When you're strange, about the doors, is great. Lots of good footage.

    The Clash: Westway to the world
    Rush: beyond the lighted stage was also good.

    +1 on The Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers documentry.

    The Ramones documentry "End Of The Century" is also great. The Stones Gimme Shelter documentry of Altamont is of course is a favorite.

    Fearless Freaks is a good one even if you don't like the Flaming Lips.


    I liked loudQUIETloud a lot, but I'm a huge Pixies fan. I can't imagine a non-fan enjoying it.

    Terrific and sad documentary.

    George Harrison- "Living in the Material World" HBO special is excellent.
    John Lennon- "Imagine" you've probably already seen, but one of the best IMO.
    Wilco- "I am Trying to Break Your Heart" is a good one.
    Radiohead- "Meeting People is Easy" is kind of disorienting but a good watch.

    Whether you like the band or not, it's a poignant document.
