Dave Grohl has released his new one man documentary Play, where he performs a 23-minute instrumental played live on seven instruments.
According to the press release Play looks at “the rewards and challenges of dedicating ones life to playing and mastering a musical instrument. Part one opens with narrated behind the scenes footage featuring discussion of the love of playing music and the lifelong relationship with an instrument, and detailing the process and challenges of recording and filming this unique performance.”
Then the documentary shifts to the recording itself, where Grohl had to play each instrument without sheet music for the entire 23 minutes. In other words, if he messed up on his bass track 9 minutes in, he had to start over again. Grohl had to do it all from memory.
