Taylor Hawkins not comfortable with Foo Fighters film

Foo Fighters' drummer, Taylor Hawkins, didn't want their new documentary 'Back And Forth' released.

The film charts the band's career and includes a section dealing with how Taylor overdosed on painkillers in August 2000, and he admitted he's not "comfortable" with the final result.

He told NME.com: "I wish we wouldn't put the fing movie out to be honest because I'm not really comfortable with the public sort of openness, I'm really not."

Taylor did admit, however, the resulting film - which also shows the band's arguments and lows, as well as their highs - has positive features.

He added: "I think it's done well and yes, I think because there's points where you do feel uncomfortable, that's what makes it interesting for people.

"Any rock documentary or any documentary, the centrepiece is the hard part, the painful part.

"We almost broke up and I almost died and all those crazy things have happened. And that's what people want.

"If they're gonna watch a fing movie about you they don't just want some guys sitting around and going, 'Ooh, it was really great and then we were all so happy and then we played this show and things just got better and we made lot of money.' That would be boring and unrealistic."

'Back And Forth' will be screened in selected UK cinemas on Thursday (07.04.11).
