WHAT DRIVES US – with the “us” being all the bands and musicians that spent years touring in vans with one dream: to play LIVE MUSIC.
“This film is my love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music. What started as a project to pull back the curtain on the DIY logistics of stuffing all of your friends and equipment into a small space for months on end eventually turned into an exploration of ‘Why? What drives us?’ Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl says.
In order to do that, Grohl interviews many of his famous friends including: Ringo Starr, Steven Tyler, Brian Johnson, The Edge, Slash, Duff McKagan, Flea, Lars Ulrich, Dave Lombardo and more.
What Drives Us will premiere April 30 as part of The Coda Collection, a new, music-focused subscription streaming channel on Amazon Prime Video.
By the way… last week, Grohl announced that he’ll be releasing his first book, The Storyteller, on October 5.
