Buckcherry are out to make a movie about their forthcoming album Confessions. But unlike some recent movies put out by rockers, this won’t be a documentary … it’s story around the same idea as their album … complete with a screenplay written by singer Josh Todd. The band says that Todd wrote the screenplay while writing the album. It acted as a guide of sorts for the album’s concept, which focuses on the seven deadly sins and other human flaws. Guitarist Kieth Nelson says that the album that stands alone from the screenplay … neither of which needs the other to be successful. The album hits store February 13th. No word yet on production of the movie.
After the successful hype around Grohl’s Sound City Players, Dave Grohl hopes to take the band around the world. The super-super-group of rockers has a show at the end of this month in LA after performing at the Sundance Music Festival last week. Now Grohl says he wants to have video presentations in-between songs during the concerts. Details still forthcoming.
New Foo record
Dave Grohl says he’s got some big ideas and goals for the next Foo Fighters record. But it’s gonna have to wait until after he finishes promoting and touring with the Sound City documentary and Grohl’s Sound City Players. Grohl says Foo Fighters already has some new material written, it’s just a matter of when they can get in the studio. Members of the Foo Fighters are also part of the Sound City Players.
Shopping for a network
The drummer of Poison is trying to get his own reality show. Rikki Rockett owns and operates a drum store and he’s shopping around various networks to get a show that will follow him and his business around while he makes custom drums. The slogan for the shop, and more than likely for the show, is “drums do come true.” Something to entice the network execs, Rockett says that he has lunatics running his shop and he never messes up an order. Expect to see the drum maker’s reality show on something like the History Channel or the Cooking Network or something. Just throw it at a wall and see what sticks.
