A new documentary about drumming is set to feature some big name drummers, including Ringo Starr and the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
“Let There Be Drums!,” directed by Justin Kreutzmann, son of The Grateful Dead’s drummer Bill Kreutzmann, is described as a film that “examines the essential role drumming plays in great bands and how music passes from generation to generation.”
In addition to Ringo and Taylor, the film will include interviews from such famous musicians as The Police’s Stewart Copeland; The Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins, the Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith and Guns N’ Roses’ Matt Sorum.
According to Justin, the idea for the project was “to talk to the world’s most influential drummers in hopes of better understanding his father and the instrument that defined his life.”
The film will hit theaters October 28th.
