Rising from the ashes of Nirvana, the Foo Fighters became a Grammy-winning sensation on their own. Sixteen years of the band's history comes to life in this documentary, from their demo tapes through the creation of their 2011 album, "Wasting Light."Written by
This documentary was at its best when talking about the revolving band members and in-fighting. It was during those moments, that "Back and Forth" rose above the average rock documentary. Despite my love for their 'Wasting Light' album, the last half hour descended into an extended advertisement for that album. This broke momentum with what had been an excellent doco up until then.
I'm watching this in 2019, and the above mentioned album released in 2011. 8 years and numerous albums have taken place during that time, which makes the latter half of "Back and Forth" seem dated. Still, if you're a musician or Foo Fighters fan, it's intriguing to see their recording and songwriting process.
For a band of its popularity and fame, the guys in Foo Fighters come across surprisingly grounded and down to earth here. It's a well-made documentary that should make both fans and music buffs happy.
