Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins Regrets Doing Documentary

05:01 PM Wednesday 4/6/11 | |

A recent interview has revealed that one surprising critic of the new Foo Fighters documentary is none other than drummer Taylor Hawkins.

“Foo Fighters: Back and Forth” takes viewers through the band’s 16-year-history from its start as Dave Grohl’s post-Nirvana project to an in-depth, behind the scenes look at the recording process for the group’s seventh album, Wasting Light. The feature film was directed by Oscar/Emmy winner James Moll and produced by Spitfire Pictures in association with Allentown Productions.

Hawkins told NME he wishes the documentary had never been released.

“I wish we wouldn’t put the f**king movie out to be honest because I'm not really comfortable with the public sort of openness, I’m really not,” he told NME.

Unfortunately for Hawkins, it’s a little too late for this kind of feedback. “Back and Forth” made its debut last month at the 2011 South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. On Tuesday the documentary was screened at over 80 theatres across the U.S. British fans will get the chance to check out the film tomorrow when it hits select theatres in the United Kingdom.

Spin.com notes that “Back and Forth” covers Hawkins’ drug addiction and near-fatal 2002 overdose.

Hawkins told NME that on a positive note, the documentary isn’t boring.

“Trying to look at it from the outside and judge it and have some sort of perspective, I think it’s actually way more interesting than I thought a movie about us was going to be,” he said. “We almost broke up and I almost died and all those crazy things have happened.”

Yesterday’s U.S. screening of “Back and Forth” included a tie-in performance from the Foo Fighters playing Wasting Light from start to finish. The performance was shown in the movie theatres via live feed following the documentary.

Wasting Light is set for release April 12 as the follow-up to 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.

    Just saw "back and forth" and live set last night in Corvalis, Oregon.

    The doc. was brilliant in its honesty. A moving experience for anyone that loves music :)  Everyone interviewed was amazingly honest !!

    i feel this honestly will help countless other bands. Hearing Grohl speak about Kurt and seeing and hearing the connection to Taylor's OD was beyond heart felt.  This film dealt with some heavy *** and really moved everyone watching.

    I am very grateful to have been shown something so personal and real.

    How hard this must have been for them to have to speak about is beyond words.

    The movie also used family video of them hanging out with their children that was priceless. See this movie and share with others.

    The live set  was Foo at its best. The BEST  ROCK BAND

    we have left.  The intention of this band is simple they just plain ol' CARE

    In a world of musical posers their brutal honesty and musical power are so needed !!  See this film
