Dave Grohl has been busy – nothing new there – coming up with a road documentary with a difference… It’s all about the band vans.
Yes, the wheels that get bands from A-to-B in their fledgling days are the subject matter in What Drives Us, and it features interview footage from an impressive array of artists. These include AC/DC, Aerosmith, Ben Harper, Dead Kennedys, L7, Metallica, No Doubt, Red Hot Chili Peppers, St Vincent, The Beatles and U2.
“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,” says Dave. “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?”
Set to air from April 30, here’s a sneak peek of What Drives Us:
