So, the story goes like this: A young Mike Myers, just before filming Wayne's World, still needs a particular Alice Cooper song for the movie. To get it, he has to go through Cooper's manager, Shep Gordon - who whilst playing hardball, turned out to be, as Myers' put it: "the nicest person I have ever met." And so the two became friends. Over two decades later, here we are.

Gordon, a man whose career began by being punched by Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix suggesting he become a manager, is the subject of Myers' directorial debut - the documentary feature Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.

He's led an astonishingly starry and incident-filled life, and one in which he has transitioned from the quintessential drug-dealing 60's manager to a man obsessed with the positive consequences of his actions. The trailer promises star appearances from the likes of Sylvester Stallone and Michael Douglas - who even suggests there may be some secrets of his that only Gordon knows.
