Help me remember a documentary

Many years ago I either heard or read a documentary about an American rock 'n' roll producer who was—according to this documentary—highly influential but never particularly famous, but whose name I cannot now recall.

There are only two details of his life I remember:
1. He once talked a bunch of children in his neighbourhood into jumping up and down on a wooden staircase in his house to record a backbeat, and
2. He eventually died in a shootout with his landlord.
I would love to know if this is a figment of my imagination, and if it was genuinely a documentary I remember, I'd love to know more about this person.
