The Foo Fighters' Back and Forth Documentary

The Foo Fighters are back with a new album and they're better than ever! For those who don't know, the Foo Fighters is an american rock band formed by ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. But in this band, Dave writes the songs, sings them and even plays the guitar too.

I remember when I heard the 1st Foo Fighter's album back in '95, I was really surprised that Dave, being a drummer of a big rock band before, could write good tunes and even sing them. I was also amazed that he played all the instruments in that first album. Amazing!

Anyway, I wanna talk a bit about the documentary the band released recently entitled "Back and Forth". I watched it with my wife a few weeks back, and what could I say, I could really relate to it.

I was really impressed by their honesty throughout the video. They talked about their experiences when they were first starting out. The conflicts, the struggles, the wins and losses and everything else that every band goes through.

But it was on the latter part that made me say, "wow, this is what I want!". I just saw in front of me how I want my life to look like when I turn 40 something: Being in a loving family and yet still seriously rocking it out with my band. Oh yeah, that's what I want and these guys are living it! It was really touching to see them make their latest album at Dave's place, each of them bringing in their own families, kids and all of them just having fun together.

I believe any serious musician would want to watch this documentary. Specially those with kids. Check out the video trailer below:
