I watched this on Netflix last night and was blown away at these stories.
I've always thought that these men and women were rolling
in money and fame.....not so much. Plus what happens when the
"Star" decides to go a different direction.

The feature-length documentary, introduces you to some of the
world’s unsung heroes of the music industry.

These musicians have played with musical legends such as Alice Cooper,
Rob Zombie, Billy Joel, P!NK, Ozzy Osbourne, Michael Jackson, Metallica,
Bon Jovi and many more.
