12 Music Documentaries to Watch

We’re back after a weekend of locking ourselves in with a long list of misc documentaries. Some we’ve seen before, some we watched for the first time. Here are ten inspirational music documentaries that will open you up to other artists’ lives, teach you a thing or two about music history, and may help you get out of a creative funk. Check them out if you haven’t already! Highly recommended!
