Foo Fighters Dave Grohl released Play today via YouTube and other video platforms. This 32-minute video celebrates and follows loving, growing and learning the world of music from kids to adults who are still learning till this day.
“PLAY” by Dave Grohl celebrates the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing and mastering a musical instrument. Part one opens with narrated behind the scenes footage featuring discussion of the love of playing music and the lifelong relationship with an instrument, and detailing the process and challenges of recording and filming this unique performance. “PLAY” film then segues to the titular 23-minute, one-man-band instrumental recording on which Grohl plays all seven instruments on the track, all live.
Grohl said about the project, “Watching my kids start to play music and learn to sing or play drums, it brings me back to the time when I was their age listening to albums, learning from listening… and when I take my kids to the place where they take their lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out. And even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out… it’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve on what you’ve learned.”
Mark Monroe helped Dave Grohl in putting this documentary together. They last worked together for the HBO series, ” Sonic Highways” as well as “Sound City.” The documentary will be released via Roswell Films.
