The Foo Fighters new documentary, Back and Forth, chronicles the band
recording their new album Wasting
Light. But drummer Taylor Hawkins is not fan of the film.
“I wish we wouldn't put the movie out to be honest,” Taylor told NME, “because I'm not really
comfortable with the public sort of openness, I'm really not.”
Back and Forth was
directed by Oscar winner James Moll (The Last Days)
and debuted at the South By Southwest Film Festival in March. The Foo
Fighters will perform a live show after special advance screening April
5 in over 80 U.S. theaters.
“Trying to look at it from the outside and judge it and have some sort
of perspective, I think it's actually way more interesting than I
thought a movie about us was going to be,” said Hawkins. “I think it's
done well and yes, I think because there's points where you do feel
uncomfortable, that’s what makes it interesting for people. Any rock
documentary or any documentary,” said Hawkins, “the centerpiece is the
hard part, the painful part.”
