People like Tony Robbins, Larry King, and Alanis Morissette, to name a few.
But I recently got the chance to meet a legend of a different kind – a man who made other legends happen.
Shep Gordon was the manager behind mega-talents like Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Teddy Pendergrass and knows everyone who is anyone in the music and Hollywood business.
He is also credited with creating the role of celebrity chefs through his work bringing them into the spotlight.
This has led to both a documentary being made about his life (directed by Mike Meyers) and a recent memoir written about him, published by Anthony Bourdain.
Aside from all of those impressive achievements though, I learned that Shep is a man who is devoted to serving others.
