A documentary film about session and touring musicians that are hired by well established and famous bands and artists like Metallica, KISS, and Billy Joel. These hired guns may not be household names, but are still masters of their craft.
A documentary crew followed Metallica for the better part of 2001-2003, a time of tension and release for the rock band, as they recorded their album St. Anger, fought bitterly, and sought the counsel of their on-call shrink.

Rising from the ashes of Nirvana, the Foo Fighters became a Grammy-winning sensation on their own. Sixteen years of the band's history comes to life in this documentary, from their demo tapes through the creation of their 2011 album, "Wasting Light."Written by
This was a musical journey that I really recommend people even remotely interested in Foo Fighters and their music to see. Little did I know sitting down in the cinema about the background stories of this constellation of musicians calling themselves Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl as the obvious front figure, with his friend and bass player Nate Mendel as a constant team member, are taking the viewers on a trip from the Nirvana days up to the recording of Foo Fighters' latest studio album 'Wasting Light'.
The film is humorous, intense, sensitive and enlightening, and with constant sequences of a variety of the group's musical contributions being showed, a span from intimate rock club gigs to the great Wembley shows in 2008 can be enjoyed. Dave Grohl is giving a lot away from things that affected the band's development, positive or negative. Interviews are mixed with pieces of songs and live performances.
This is a perfect warm-up for the up and coming album, that in the cinema was accentuated by the close-to-one-take-shot of a live studio performance, where the band is playing all songs from the newest album in a row, without a crowd or any small talk in between the songs. A perfect end to an amazing documentary.
