I finally found a link that worked and watched it last night, fun movie!
Yes - the Dowd movie was excellent.
So is the Les Paul movie, "Catching Sound". And there's a great doc on Lemmy called...well, "Lemmy".
The collaberation album that was made on this documentry is now available for free streaming! Check it out:
I'm really loving the Trent Reznor + Dave Grohl + Josh Homme song "Mantra".
I'm liking some of the stuff but I think you can definately tell that Dave Grohl is involved in alot of it. Highlights for me would be trick with no Sleeve, from can to can't and time slowing down is ok.
Just got around to watching this, great story. I love hearing stuff like this that we would have no idea about otherwise.
Wow that guy from Slipknot has a great voice!
OK, downloading now. Will watch it this week.
It's very cool, Hans. The old footage is wonderful to watch and leaves you wanting more. I'd love to know how much footage of those old sessions actually exists.
I saw it a few months back, loved it and highly recommend it.
The recording industry has changed, somethings for the better and some for worse, and most will never get to work or record in an organic, "big" studio. I teach audio engineering and have a love-hate relationship with recording to tape and the same goes for recording digitally. IMHO, a big part of capturing a great performance is the vibe at the moment and working piece meal or individually over distance seems to lack the mojo and vibe of musicians working collaboratively to create art. I'm tempted to make this movie required viewing for one of my classes.
Just bought the CD on Amazon, got it free with rewards points (an added bonus that I didn't realize I had).
The CD is really good, I have been enjoying it.
I bought it a week or so ago ($25NZ because we get shafted on these things). Watched it about three nights running. DG is one talanted chap. What a perfect life he's built for himself. Anyway, loved the movie. Loved the bit where he's looking puzzled whilst the board's designer is explaining some basic electronic principles. Wonder if he'd be my friend and I could just hang out and jam.... ;-)
Anyone watch his SXSW keynote this year? Pretty interesting.
Just watched it. Credits are rolling as I type this on my iPhone.
Three things come to mind:
1) I feel like I missed out on something I was supposed to be a part of - and I traded it all for money.
2) I want to sell all of my guitars - except one - and take it seriously.
3) The last tune with McCartney was raw, powerful, and my favorite.
I'm glad this thread got bumped - I just ordered the DVD and the CD....
As a companion piece, if you're feeling the Grohl love, check out the Foo Fighters doc "Back And Forth". It covers the recording of the album they did after this board was installed at Grohl's home studio (I believe it was after this board). It's really awesome, not only watching all the stuff that went into the album, but watching them interact with their families as it happened. There's a scene where Grohl is recording a guitar part and his daughter comes in, pokes him in the back and says (in that way only little girls can), "Daddy, you said we'd GO SWIMMING!" He says something like, "We will, but I have to finish recording this guitar part." And as I recall, never stopped playing. Just a sweet moment.
