Two legendary frontmen, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Brian Johnson of AC/DC, will be staring in a new music documentary that will air later this week.
The appropriately named “Brian Johnson Meets Dave Grohl” will cover the two musing over their music careers. The documentary was shot in Grohl’s Studio 606 in Southern California.
The legendary musicians are also known for being some of the nicest people in the industry so it’s no wonder that Johnson had high praises for Grohl when asked about his experience shooting with the former Nirvana drummer.
“Dave Grohl’s passion for rock music is infectious, we had a ball reminiscing about the early days in our different careers,” said Johnson. “If he ever runs for President, he’d get my vote.”
The show was producer by British television studio Sky Arts and will air on their platforms on September 17th. Later in the month, the show will then become free to watch.
“There’s never been a stronger need or demand for the arts, nor a more important time to champion and celebrate creativity,” explains Sky Arts director Philip Edgar-Jones. “That’s why we’re throwing open the doors to make Sky Arts a free channel. During lockdown, we’ve seen audiences to the channel increase by 50 percent, and our weekly live paint-along show, ‘Portrait Artist Of The Week’, reached 4.6 million people with over 20,000 portraits painted.
Unfortunately for non-United Kingdom residents, Sky Arts’ content is geo-blocked, meaning it will be unavailable to stream to rock fans stateside. While those with VPNs might be able to get around this problem it is not yet known if a US distributor will pick up the show yet. However, Sky Arts has syndicated many US platforms including Netflix originals, the History Channel, MTV, Vice, and many others so it’s entirely possible a deal could be struck for the documentary.
