(Classic Rock) Shep Gordon admits he struggles with the on-screen version of himself in 2013 documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. The 2013 Classic Rock Award winner and longtime Alice Cooper manager says director Mike Myers didn't include many of his "failures" in the film, and instead painted him in a "beautiful, heroic" light.

He tells Rolling Stone: "Mike's a storyteller. He took the parts of my life and turned it into this beautiful heroic story and built in a lot of sympathy and some drama.

"What the film didn't do was deal with the failures. When I saw the movie, Mike was very nervous - did I like it, did I hate it? I said, 'You know, Mike, I'd love to have lunch with this guy.'"

The film also serves as a how-to guide for living, and explores the 71-year-old mogul's "compassionate business" concept - but he insists no one has all the answers in life. Read more here.
