Foo Fighters – Back and Fourth documentary


Dave Grohl and other members of the Foo Fighters discuss the band’s music. The initial release was March 15, 2011 and directed by James Moll.

Excellent documentary showing the struggles of putting band members together that are compatible with each other. Interesting to watch where all these musicians came from.

Must watch!

Led Zeppelin – IV


The untitled fourth studio album by the rock band Led Zeppelin, commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, was released in November 1971 by Atlantic Records and was produced by guitarist Jimmy Page.

My copy of this album still has the plastic on it and the gatefold has never been opened. When I first got this album I heard “Black Dog” and I was WOW this is definitely Zeppelin. I’m sure everyone knows the song “Stairway to Heaven” as it is classic now.

When I first listened to the entire album some of the quieter songs weren’t heavy enough for me at the time. However I love all the songs on this album.

You gotta have it in your collection …. even digital!
