Editorial Reviews

The Grammy Award winning chronicling of the triumphs and tragedies of the band's 16 year history, BACK AND FORTH chronicles FOO FIGHTERS entire existence: from Dave Grohl's cassette demos to the band forming to play those songs to their ascent to becoming one of the biggest rock bands on the planet--and every Grammy® win and sold out show along the way. FOO FIGHTERS BACK AND FORTH features Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear recalling every stage of the band's existence more candidly and intimately than ever before culminating in a behind the scenes look at the direct-to-analog tape sessions in Grohl's garage that produced the new album, WASTING LIGHT.

This documentary is amazing. I watched it when it first aired on VH1 Classic commercial free. I couldn't walk away from the TV. I was captivated; I didn't even want to go outside for a smoke. There are all kinds of information in this documentary. Lots of concert footage and personal information for the band members. It starts from the very beginning of Dave's career. I'm talking all the way back before Nirvana. All of the band members get very personal as they talk about the journey with Foo Fighters. I just loved this documentary. If you are a Foo Fighters fan I would highly recommend getting this. I have pre-ordered it and can't wait to watch it again.

Here is the synopsis from foofighters.com

FOO FIGHTERS BACK AND FORTH chronicles the 16 year history of the Foo Fighters: from the band's very first songs created as cassette demos Dave Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana's drummer, through its ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.

Wow -- what a compelling and fun documentary! Back and Forth starts with the early career of Foo Fighters' founder Dave Grohl, including personal revelations and commentary about the death of Kurt Cobain by Grohl and others (like Nevermind producer Butch Vig). After the end of Nirvana Grohl took eight months off then recorded songs he'd written over the past few years; liking what he heard, he asked the rhythm section of recently-demised Sunny Day Real Estate to join him, and FF was off the ground. The retrospective continues chronologically through lineup changes and albums and lineup changes and tours and drama and lineup changes, with candid commentary from each of the band members (current and former) and lots of great concert footage, home videos, funny music videos and fascinating behind-the-scenes extras. The film finishes with the delightful process of recording the group's latest release, 2011's Wasting Light, which took place at Grohl's home with the band members' families around, produced by Butch Vig and with input from Husker Du's Bob Mould and ex-Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic playing on "I Should Have Known", a haunting tearjerker that addresses Grohl's feelings about Cobain these many years later. The final scene shows a live performance of "Burning Bridges" while each band member acknowledges how lucky they are. Which is a nice change from the angsty, drug-addled hedonism we so often get from entertainment folk. Like Metallica's Some Kind of Monster, you want to watch this again right away, and find yourself loving the band even more.

I especially liked the footage of Grohl giving in to his daughter's pleas to go swimming; we see them in the pool while Mould and Vig work on a track in Dave's garage.

Just from seeing an obviously edited TV broadcast...I was so moved! The DVD release is 135mins. Plus I am sure bonus surprises! The Foo's are at the pinnacle now! The band is so tight and "Wasted Light" is amazing. What's even more amazing is "Back And Forth". A seemingly quiet history...no tales told...well here it is! I was amazed what Dave has been through in 16 years! That just since his release of the debut album done by Dave on his own! A genius of the 21st Century. Hell a genius period! The story behind Dave branching his demos into a full fledged band did not come without some major speed bumps. Firing band members for the greater good. Member(s) leaving, then coming back to the fold. Bring all up to date to the incredible band that Foo Fighter's are today: Taylor, Chris, Nate, Pat & Dave. Foo Fighter's forever!

This is a great history of the band, it really doesn't leave much out. It starts with Dave in Nirvana and his heart felt explanations about Kurt and how Foo came into being. If you love Behind the music or Band history's this is for you. The great thing about this is it doesn't follow cliches about plunging into the depths of hell then amazing self awareness not only saves the members but the band. The story does go through some hardships but mostly follows a line on how the music and the band has came together to create this wonderful thing called Foo Fighters. They are the last great rock band according to me and I am glad the exists if only to please me. This video has great insight to who Dave is and how he thinks I highly recommend this and their albums.

Foo Fighters are a great band to a great amount of people. I liked learning a few new things in this doc that I didn't know about Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters before. The first half of it I really enjoyed. I started to get a bit bored when the whole Wasting Light pr0mo parts started. I like Wasting Light. But wouldn't consider it the landmark of their career. Only my opinion. Keep rockin Foo.

Dave Grohl really puts his heart and soul into everything he does. If you didn't know that prior to going into Foo Fighters Back and Forth documentary you will be sure of it after viewing it. And this video is really The History of Dave Grohl as much as it is about the Foo Fighters.

The DVD starts with a young Grohl joining Nirvana and reveals a lot of inside story about the dynamic of that band and its tragic end. Then the real fun starts as Dave lays it all out there from getting the Foo Fighters together through getting the first album out through the many intricacies and trials and tribulations of the band to the current day and the release of Wasting Light.

Let me tell you, friends and neighbors...this video affected me. I don't know if it affected me so much because Wasting Light also so affected me, or if it's that I'll be seeing the Foo's for my first time next month, or perhaps I just related to a lot of the experiences as a musician myself (failed musician but musician nonetheless!). But this video affected me. I rocked. I laughed. I rocked. I got disappointed. I rocked. I even got friggin emotional at one point! And I'm no Foo Fighters fan boy; I've been critical of the group for putting out records that have a few great songs and a lot of forgettable songs. However the band really turned that corner for me with Wasting Light, which has track after track of great songs.

Foo Fighters Back and Forth is a must for Foo Fighters fans, but maybe even more so for anyone who's ever wanted to know how to make a good band and then make that good band persevere through it all to greatness.
