And although it features the band recording and performing songs from its about-to-drop new album, it is more generally about the making of music and the making of musicians, as the ineluctable product of influences and experiences; and the historical sound-culture of the several cities in which the Foo Fighters traveled to make what I still call their new "record"; and the creation of community and of character.
