The drummer from Nirvana? Psssh.,
This review is from: Foo Fighters: Everywhere But Home [DVD] (DVD)Foo Fighters have always been hot property since the demise of Nirvana. However since the release of latest album 'One by One' just over a year ago, they have achieved even higher heights of success, especially in the UK - number 1 albums, top ten singles and a sold-out UK arena tour in addition to a couple of festival dates.
'Everywhere but home' concentrates on the latter - the fact that they've toured pretty much non-stop since the release of 'One By One.' They've been all over the world, and the DVD contains the best picks from the various tours (no footage from the concerts I went to but I won't hold a grudge).
It certainly isn't short on content, with a full-length concert in Toronto in both video and audio formats, a 4-song acoustic set from Washington, a couple of tracks from their show at Slane Castle this year and a full audio version of their first ever concert in Reykjavik.
Basically, its a must for any Foo fan, and a great piece of memorabilia for anyone who has seen them live. The Toronto show demonstrates what a great live band they really are. All of the singles are included plus album favourites such as 'Hey, Johnny Park!' and 'Aurora' which are both amazing (having experienced it first hand). Grohl's solo acoustic of Everlong is beautiful.
I can't comment on the DVD-ROM features as I can't play them on my PC. I would assume the 'Photo Galleries' are on there, unless of course these 'Photo Galleries' are the pictures that come up on screen when you play the audio tracks.
If you're a Foo fan, its a must. But of course that goes without saying. It demonstrates once and for all that Dave Grohl is not 'that drummer from Nirvana' - he's a star in his own right, as are the rest of the band.
