Watch: Trailer for Dave Grohls documentary, Sound City
Dave Grohl has got some of the coolest friends in the world. How do I know? Because they’re all in his new documentary.
Down below is the trailer for a doc called Sound City which was directed by the Foo Fighters frontman and focuses on Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, CA. The studio was shut down in 2011 but not before some of the biggest names in rock recorded some legendary albums including Nirvana’s Nevermind.
Grohl said of the studio, “That place was like a church. The list of people that recorded there is like a virtual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That funky old place had the best drum room in the world. The drum sound at the beginning of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit?’ That’s Sound City. I decided to make a film about that feeling when you put five guys in a room, hit ‘record’ and the hair on the back of your neck stands up. Expect some epic jam sessions.”
So who are some of Grohl’s friends in this film? Try Trent Reznor, Joshua Homme, Mick Fleetwood, Tom Petty, Lars Ulrich, Krist Novoselic, Alain Johannes, Cheap Trick, Corey Taylor, Butch Vig, Vinnie Appice, Barry Manilow, Frank Black, Taylor Hawkins and a whole lot more.
There’s no release date set for the film yet but you should put this on your “I’m fucking seeing this when it comes out” list.
