Into drums? Then you’ll want to see this new documentary.

As a drummer myself, I’m admittedly biased toward anything that gives our type a little respect. That’s what I’m interested in Let There Be Drums, an upcoming documentary by Justin Kreutzmann, the son of Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann.

The doc, due on Apple TV, Amazon Prime, and in certain movie theatres, looks at where drummers come from and what keeps them going. The film features:

  • Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead)
  • Ringo Starr (Some Liverpool band)
  • Stewart Copeland (The Police)
  • Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction
  • Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses)
  • Tre Cool (Green Day)
  • Adrian Young (No Doubt)
  • Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers among many others)
  • John Densmore (The Doors)
  • Taylor Hawkins *sigh* (His last-ever interview)
