What Drives Us examines the appeal of touring as a band and will apparently be coming to Amazon Video: Trailer here.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is embarking on a second career as a director. To be clear, it’s not that we think he’ll ever need something to fall back on – we’re pretty sure the seemingly evergreen Foos will release albums for our grandkids to rock on – but nonetheless, Grohl has been quietly carving out a place for himself as a respected documentary filmmaker over the past decade.
He directed the 2013 film, city of sound, on the Van Nuys, California music studio where Nirvana recorded It does not matter, as well as the documentary series sonic highways, an Emmy-winning series on The Foo Fighters.
Now Grohl is back with another upcoming music documentary, this time about the appeal and importance of touring, examining how bands survive on the road and why living together on a bus often forms the core of a band. rock. The film features contributions from a who’s who of musicians, including Ringo Starr, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, St. Vincent, Slash and Duff McKagan of Guns & Roses, The Edge of U2, Flea Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, X’s Exene Cervenka, and more.
While no release date has yet been confirmed, the film is reportedly coming to Amazon’s streaming service so you know where to keep an eye.
What Grohl thinks about breaking the “what goes on tour, stays on tour” mantra, we don’t know yet. If he finds out that the music industry is excommunicating him for breaking the code, he’s always welcome to come over for a coffee. Maybe he could teach us how to play a decent D chord.
Grohl is also rumored to be working on a horror movie with Endeavor Content, so we’ll let you know as soon as we know more. In the meantime, watch the trailer below ahead of the film’s launch.
