love for life and music."I love Dave like a crazy brother,"
Butch told 93 XRT
. "I don't know anyone who has such infectious enthusiasm for life and for music... [The Foos] are capable of doing what they want to do, and we decided to make this record in eight different cities. The band wrote eight songs and we recorded them all in eight different locales in the U.S."Part of the documentary is about the recording of the song and a lot of it is about he musical history of that city... And it's also about what it means to the Foos and to Dave. He taps into what each city musically, personally means him. Each city truly had it's own experience. One of the cool things about the album is... each song has that city's sound to a certain extent and definitely the environment we recorded in. Each song is it’s own unique beast,"
the producer added.
