Guitar Legends - Foo Fighters
In 1995, former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl picked up a guitar and buried the past with Foo Fighters and their self-titled debut album. Since then, the Foo Fighters have carved their names in rock and roll history as one of the most successful alternative-rock bands, touting three Grammy wins for Best Rock Album. In 2011, they returned to the studio to make Wasting Light, their seventh album. Guitar One Presents Foo Fighters covers 15 years of interviews and tells the story behind every record.
