Dave Grohl to release two-part documentary called Play

Master of music Dave Grohl has announced he is releasing a two-part documentary, which culminates with him performing a solo 23-minute performance on seven different instruments.

The doco, titled “Play”, will be released August 10th, and showcases “the rewards and challenges of dedicating ones life to playing and mastering a musical instrument.”

Watching my kids start to play music and learn to sing or play drums, it brings me back to the time when I was their age listening to albums, learning from listening… and when I take my kids to the place where they take their lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out,” Grohl said in a statement.

“And even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out… it’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve on what you’ve learned.”

Grohl really proves he can do anything, with the nicest guy in rock and roll created a seven-piece one-man band in the impressive documentary. The first part of the doco focuses on the behind-the-scenes preparation for the performance, which is unveiled in the second part.

Check out the teaser for the feature above.
