I reckon if you are not too informed in the music business there are certain figures who pull the strings behind the scenes, you may not know. Here is one of them. And documentaries are a good tool to get to know them. This really was enlightening. So many people from the industry that I do know give praise and tell us there story and encounters.

A really well made documentary, that might be specific for certain people or likings, but still very well made and a showing of a man most might not have gotten to know otherwise.
