10 BEST Music Documentaries to Watch on Netflix

Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me

One of the most poignant music docs of recent years, 2014’s I’ll Be Me follows Rhinestone Cowboy Glen Campbell on his farewell tour as he struggles to deal with a mind increasingly ravaged by Alzheimer’s. Campbell, who passed away from the disease last year, is nothing short of awe-inspiring as he hits the road alongside his loving family in an intimate but powerful portrait of a bona fide country legend.

Miss Sharon Jones

You may also need your tissues ready for this revealing year-in-the-life-of documentary about Grammy-nominated soul-funk singer Sharon Jones. Recorded while the star was battling pancreatic cancer – a disease which eventually took her life in 2016 – Miss Sharon Jones! can be a tough watch, but its subject’s star quality, wicked sense of humour and vivacious personality still shines throughout.

Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster

Filmed during the recording of their eighth studio effort, St. Anger, this warts-and-all documentary made hard rock giants Metallica something of a laughing stock on its release in 2003. Indeed, there’s something very Spinal Tap-esque about the band as they bitch, bicker and backstab their way through multiple arduous recording and group therapy sessions.
