Dave Grohl Speech Inspires Fan to Form Band and Make a Documentary About it
"Why don't you guys form a band and I'll come see you?"
Musing about whether they'd come out to sing his songs or their own, Grohl made a suggestion to the audience in that moment: "Why don't you guys form a band and I'll come see you?"
Singer Juan Pablo Sanzi decided he wanted to do exactly that, with the goal of writing a song that fully expressed the sentiment of the crowd's passionate rendition of the famous soccer chant to the band that night. He didn't think Grohl could grasp the true measure of love and respect in the collective gesture.
Documenting the process alongside director Mauro Romero, Sanzi gathered a group that included lead guitarist Martin Legovich, drummer Ezequiel Gonzalez, rhythm guitarist Marton Fabbrizzi, rhythm guitarist Marco Ruberto and bassist Nicolas Zanotti to create the In Your Honor documentary-slash-band-slash-song-slash-feeling.
"This documentary is a way of rewarding [Grohl] and thanking him with work for the influence he had on me," the driving force of the project told IndieHoy.
According to a recent Twitter post, Sanzi and co. have sent a copy of their creation to the man himself and are eagerly awaiting his response.
