New Doc About Music’s “Hired Gun”

In fact, that’s what it’s called: Hired Gun. It takes a look at the mostly anonymous musicians who accompany the world’s best-known artists on tour and in the studio. These are some of the best players in the world–which is how they get this work–but they’re unknown to the world at large. If you loved 20 Feet from Stardom, the story of backup singers, you’ll dig this.
