Musician Documentaries

I'm currently on a musician documentary kick via Netflix. This weekend I watched The Devil and Daniel Johnston and found it positively riveting. I mentioned this on my radio show this evening and got a call suggesting I check out the Roky Erickson documentary You're Gonna Miss Me (which would thus make it a mentally ill musician documentary kick). What other musician documentaries do I need to see?

Half Japanese - The Band That Would Be King

Fugazi - Instrument

Theremin - An Electronic Odyssey

Guided By Voices - Watch Me Jumpstart

Style Wars

Pavement - Slow Century

The Minutemen - We Jam Econo

I haven't seen these yet but I'm under the impression they're worth catching:

Jandek On Corwood

Dig!

Bob Dylan - Don't Look Back

I forgot to mention the K Records doc, called The Shield Around The K.

Oh, and the Wilco movie, which I'm sure you've already seen.
