Musicians were an integral part of Send In The Congregation. I wanted their opinions and to know how the band had directly influenced their lives. I come from a family that can play a vast array of instruments. But give me a guitar and I'll look at it like it's an alien artefact. I can rig your back line and mix your sound but playing an instrument is far beyond any of my capabilities. For me, musicians were important to get a feel of how the Foos music works and why it repeatedly attracts such huge crowds.
During the initial interview phase, I was lucky enough to have not one, but two, Foo Fighters tribute bands get in touch. Fu Fighters (@fu_fighters) are based in the north of England and I was blessed enough to see them play live last year. Fooz Fighters (@foozfighters) are based out in San Diego and I'd love nothing more than to one day be able to support them. Both are at the top of their game and constantly pioneering how they work with their respective bands and fan bases. It's wonderful to see musicians go out and pay tribute to their heroes by helping to add to the original band's legacy. They're testament to Dave's quote about picking up an instrument and just playing.
