To salute the band's 20th year and inspire its eighth studio album, Foo Fighters' founder/frontman Dave Grohl has produced "a love letter to the history of American music." His documentary taps into the styles and heritage of Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C. Each hourlong episode has Grohl and bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear recording a song in each city. Locals Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Dolly Parton, Rick Nielsen, Chuck D, Allen Toussaint, Gary Clark Jr. and others, contribute to tracks, illustrating how one's surroundings affect tonal/rhythmic traits and how music legends impact their hometowns.Written by

This series is great. I discovered it on Netflix thinking it was a film. It was a nice surprise to find it was actually a full series. I am a fan of the Foo Fighters, but, you don't need to be to enjoy the series. They visit some of the most famous cities in the USA and explore their musical histories. There are interviews with too many people to list here and every main genre is covered. The Foo Fighters record a song in each city, inspired by the history of that city and then perform it at the end of each episode. If you love music I highly recommend this.
