Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett And My Morning Jacket’s Jim James
“MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP” chronicles the true stories of musicians and the relationships they have with their road crew. Music legends Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket) speak candidly about their time on the road and the importance of the men and women who work tirelessly to put the show together. In addition to intimate one-on-one interviews, cameras capture the daily labors of the tour manager, guitar technician, front of house engineer and lighting technicians on the road with legendary rock band Pearl Jam as they prepare for a stadium performance. The film also follows the band Hippo Campus and their behind-the-scenes team as they tour the country. From waking up at 5 a.m. to day-long stage builds to life on the tour bus, “MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP” captures the true essence of what it means to be a roadie.
