All the wrong people are saying all the right things, which I guess is supposed to mask the fact that they're the antithesis of the man and band they're praising.  In fact, most of what they have to say begs the question of why a distinctly mainstream documentary had to be made about Lemmy in the first place.

I appreciate the fact that he's getting broader recognition for his contribution to metal, but from these segments I get the feeling that this documentary ultimately has more to do with the commentators and filmmakers than the subject matter.

It may well be how it is edited in the preview so as not to give away too many classic Lemmyisms and the like- also, they are trying to rope in people who know who Steve Vai is but are unfamiliar with Motorhead (as hard as that is to believe)

So in other words the filmmakers are attempting to maximize exposure of this piece through testimonials by entertainers who are mainstream, struggling, and irrelevant.  I think they could have done better.
