Foo Fighters: Back and Forth
Dave Grohl had been writing and recording songs since he was a teenager in Washington D.C., but it wasn't until Nirvana collapsed after the death of Kurt Cobain that Grohl opted to step out from behind the drum set and move forward as a frontman. The Foo Fighters' self-titled debut album featured Grohl playing all the instruments, but he soon assembled a working version of the band to go out on tour, and seventeen years after their 1994 debut, the Foo Fighters have weathered personal differences, a demanding touring schedule and health issues to become one of the world's most successful hard rock bands. Foo Fighters: Back and Forth is a documentary about the band in which Grohl and his bandmates talk about the band's history, perform some of their best-known songs for a sold-out audience, and work in Grohl's makeshift home studio with producer Butch Vig to record their seventh studio album, Wasting Light. Foo Fighters: Back and Forth received its world premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival.
