Yesterday, we reported that Taylor Hawkins was a bit squeamish when it came to the new Foo Fighters documentary, and it looks like he’s not alone. According to the BBC, frontman, Dave Grohl, is also finding the new documentary hard to watch at times.
… Grohl said the most difficult footage for him to watch was where he binned the recordings made by Foo Fighters original drummer William Goldsmith for second album The Colour And Shape and rerecorded them himself.
“It was brutal,” admitted Grohl.
“That part made me incredibly uncomfortable. I told everybody, ‘There’s going to be something for each one of you in this movie that will make you feel incredibly uncomfortable.'”
In a recent interview, Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins, admits that the upcoming documentary about the band hits a little too close to home.
Check out the trailer.
“I wish we wouldn’t put the ***** movie out to be honest, because I’m not really comfortable with the public sort of openness. We almost broke up and I almost died and all those crazy things have happened. And that’s what people want.’
