Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has admitted that he would rather the band's new documentary film did not get released.

The rock veterans have told their story in unflinching detail in documentary Back And Forth, which also follows the recording of their new album 'Wasting Light'.

But now the drummer has told NME that he would rather the film was never seen.

"I wish we wouldn't put the fucking movie out to be honest because I'm not really comfortable with the public sort of openness, I'm really not," he said.

However, Hawkins admitted that the documentary does have merit.

"Trying to look at it from the outside and judge it and have some sort of perspective, I think it's actually way more interesting than I thought a movie about us was going to be," he said.

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 fucking 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 is set to be screened in a selection of UK cinemas this Thursday (April 7). NME's full interview with Foo Fighters will be published next week.
