What Drives Us (2013)

Directed by; Dave Grohl..

Featuring; Brian Johnson, Flea, Slash, Duff McKagan, St. Vincent..

Another great documentary from Dave Grohl, examining the romance and adventure of an artists life on the road. While Grohl does talk with some of the biggest names in music about their days on the road, what really makes something of this documentary is how it follows new bands slogging it on in the age old art of touring. It's a really enjoyable time!
