A new upcoming documentary, Let There Be Drums, will feature late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
Let There Be Drums, which is due to be released on October 28, is being directed by Justin Kreutzmann, son of Grateful Dead‘s drummer Bill Kreutzmann.
According to Deadline, the documentary “examines the essential role drumming plays in great bands and how music passes from generation to generation.”
The documentary will feature one of Hawkins’ final interviews before he died in Bogotá, Colombia, on March 25 at the age of 50.
It will also include Stewart Copeland of The Police, Stephen Perkins from Jane’s Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and ex-Guns N’ Roses member Matt Sorum.
“Some might say this was ‘the film I was born to make,’ others might call it therapy,” Justin Kreutzmann told Rolling Stone. “Since I was young and my dad gave me that first Super-8 camera, filmmaking is all I’ve wanted to do. M y school grades could tell you that. And obviously growing up around the Grateful Dead, my first movies were the people and the crazy things going on backstage, which leads us to Let There Be Drums!”
