Docs That Rock

April Foo’s Day

OK so VH1 isn’t airing the new Foo Fighter’s documentary on April Foo(l)’s Day – it’s airing Friday April 8th. So much for a great promo tag! But don’t miss this doc. Oscar winner James Moll really crafts a warm tribute to Dave Grohl’s 16 year (!!) side project that started with a demo cassette tape on which he played all the instruments. Moll relays the story chronologically but it’s his testament as a filmmaker that the evolution of the band plays like a one coherent fable, not a collection of “and then the next album came along.” The interviews are pretty intimate as well, even from band members that Grohl kicked out. The doc premiered a few weeks back at South By Southwest but will get it’s proper premiere on VH1 Friday April 8th at 10 pm.
