From the strange collaboration department: Famed documentarian Albert Maysles has found a new subject to focus his lens on: Fall Out Boy. According to reports, the eighty-year-old Maysles has been ridin’ dirty on the Fall Out Boy tour bus, filming behind-the-scenes footage of the band for an upcoming documentary. Take a moment, check the Imdb and collect your thoughts. Maysles and his deceased brother David were the auteurs behind films like the Rolling Stones rockumentary Gimme Shelter, Salesman, Rock Daily favorite Grey Gardens, countless films about the artwork of Christo and behind-the-scenes shorts about the making of Wes Anderson films. Now, the octogenarian is hanging with Fall Out Boy? We can only imagine the footage he’s collected so far: Pete Wentz blogging away on his computer, Ashlee Simpson floating in and out of frame, legions of teenage girls screaming, Patrick Stump practicing guitar riffs, Wentz faux-DJng at his club. Actually, the possibilities are endless. Keep rolling, Al.
