Rising from the ashes of Nirvana, the Foo Fighters became a Grammy-winning sensation on their own. Sixteen years of the band's history comes to life in this documentary, from their demo tapes through the creation of their 2011 album, "Wasting Light."Written by
This here is an exceptionally strong and entertaining documentary that takes a look at the band Foo Fighters. Throughout interviews with Dave Grohl and pretty much everyone else that has played in the band we learn about how it got started as well as the various bumps in the road.
This here is certainly a great documentary and I say that because it does two things at once. For starters, if you're a fan of the Foo Fighters then there's a lot of great behind-the-scenes stories as well as some terrific concert footage to keep you entertained. If you're not overly familiar with the band then this here is a great place to start so that you can understand their history as well as why many consider them to be one of the greatest rock acts out there right now.
I really thought the documentary did a terrific job at showing the whole story of the band including briefing us on Grohl's Nirvana days and how that bad was a cloud hanging over this one for the first few years. We also hear about the various members who came in and out of the group and get some of the reasons why. We hear about the various low points that certain members have had and of course there are the great highlights.
I really thought all of the interviews were terrific and the documentary did a great job in telling the band's story. Fans and those unfamiliar with the band should really enjoy this.
