Reel to Reel: Foo Fighters Back and Forth
Jan 9 , 2012 Show: 9:30PM
Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, contender for this year's Best Long Form Video GRAMMY award, chronicles the 16 year history of the Foo Fighters--from the band's very first songs created as cassette demos by Dave Grohl during his tenure in Nirvana, through its ascent to their GRAMMY-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. Produced by Nigel Sinclair (No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, Amazing Journey the Story of the Who, The Last Play at Shea) of Exclusive Media Group's Spitfire Pictures, and produced and directed by Oscar and Emmy winner James Moll, the documentary culminates with the making of the band's 2011 GRAMMY Album of the Year nominee, Wasting Light: a process in which the band pushed itself forward by going fully back to basics and recording in Grohl's garage completely on analog tape. No computers, no software - just a band recording an album to tape in a garage. The six-time GRAMMY-nominated Wasting Light also marks the Foos' first full-length effort with legendary producer Butch Vig, with whom Grohl worked on Nirvana's classic Nevermind. After the screening, Sinclair and Moll will take the stage, along with GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, for a Q&A panel.
