I don’t usually watch documentaries–they’re nice, but there’s so much more. But these Music Documentaries on Netflix are epic and totally worth watching if you have the time.
I do love some documentaries, don’t get me wrong. But the word itself isn’t necessary titillating. And, frankly, if I was given a choice between a traditional documentary and a comedy, I’m watching a comedy every time.
But, when you start talking about music documentaries, documentaries about some of my favorite bands? Well, hands-down, I’m grabbing that remote and checking it out.
All of these are so worth the watch. Let’s rock out.
