Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Synopsis: In his directorial debut, Mike Myers documents the astounding career of Hollywood insider, the loveable Shep Gordon, who fell into music management by chance after moving to LA straight out of college, and befriending Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. Shep managed rock stars such as Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and Alice Cooper, and later went on to manage chefs such as Emeril Lagasse, ushering in the era of celebrity chefs on television. Stuffed with fantastic archive footage the film traces Shep's transformation from the 1970's hedonist to today's practicing Buddhist yearning for a family of his own.

After 5 or 6 years in the entertainment industry

I imposed some rules

And one of them is: When am signing contract with a new artist

- I have to sit down, take off my glasses,

- Look him in the eye and say:

"You have to listen seriously

This is not a joke."

"If I do my job perfectly,

probably going to kill you".

Shep Gordon has been my manager for 43 years.

If you had not met Shep,

had ended after two or three years.

I trusted Shep, absolutely.

He has the Midas touch.

Shep is the best manager par excellence.

He has been a precursor. And everyone has followed.

Shep Gordon's like Brian Epstein, Marshall McLuhan

and Mr. Magoo had had a son.

I brag all the time about it.

Not only for their successes, which are many-

- But it also is the most honest man I ever met.

Could talk to him forever.

Shep can be compassionate.

It can also be a bastard.

Have the charisma of Elvis

- physicist Steve Reeves,

wit Mark Twain

- And you probably are as well equipped as

Long Dong Silver.

Early on, Shep was like a professional bachelor.

With women in their door while leaving others behind.

Met Shep in the 80s, in Hollywood.

Do not know if you remember Carlos & Charlies...

Hypothetically, not me, say you were pulling cocaine


- And then you threw away in the middle of a fight

Shep was who you had to resort to

to reenter. Purely hypothetical.

Shep and I have smoked marijuana for years


We are the canaries in the mine...

As a young man working my way in the industry

- They told me about the show that Shep had developed with Teddy


- And how they managed to make way for black artists

breaking the "circuit Chitlin '"

If someone asked me,

who invented the chef-celebrity

- Undoubtedly, Shep Gordon.

A "jubu" is a Jew who is also a Buddhist.

And the Dalai Lama

plays an important role in his life.

When Shep gets angry, which makes

is go and cook for the Dalai Lama.

Am spiritual, I am Aries with an upward penis.

I've met most famous

through Shep Gordon

- That all my friends together.

Before working with Shep, I did Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones


The first thing he said was:

"Can you get access to Shep Gordon?"

Everyone knows Shep.

If walls could talk, Sheps

home in Maui will never be silent.

Things correctly ago, most of the time.

Sometimes libido controls.

He does not think necessarily head...

... but in a different part.

Good game, Mulligan.

We've had - away - the legendary relationship.

We have never had a contract.

Think we've never taken the business as seriously as our friendship


's Like a good marriage

- They would do anything to protect. They love.

- Shep and I are family.

If something would have happened, my wife and I,

he would have taken our children. And happy.

Family is important. It is where you come from, your story.

It's part of who you are.

The women in his life

have been incredibly beautiful.

- I've always wanted a son.

- As you age...

... I hope that things are equated.

- I love the smell of a baby.

- Do not say you have to get a dog.

- It's the last chance to have my family.

I'd like to see a good lady

- That would give him as much as others

I will be a few years yet,

to stay quiet.

Deebemos remember that this is a man who used to wear a


- shirt that read "No

blowjob, no backstage pass."

Must be from that base.

I graduated from the University of Buffalo.

Were the best days of my life

I was an idealist and social-liberal.

I wanted to save the world.

There were few jobs for sociologists,

and wanted to save some prisoners adolescents.
