Dave Grohl is the man. Foo Fighters recently wiped the floor out at the Grammy's, collecting 5 out of their nominated 6 awards with their album Wasting Light. Needless to say, Grohl is a God (awarded "God-like Genius" at the NME Awards). He was drummer for Scream, Nirvana, Them Crooked Vultures, Queens of the Stone Age (Songs for the Deaf); has worked with artists such as Trent Reznor; lead singer of Foo Fighters, and on top of all that, he is a doting husband and father of two girls! Did you know he was the devil in the Tenacious D movie 'The Pick of Destiny'? Does he ever stop?
No. He really doesn't.
The Foo Fighters front man has announced recently that he has made a documentary about Sound City Studios, located in Los Angeles, California. The documentary is about the history of the famous studios, where artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Guns N' Roses, Judas Priest, Nirvana and Tom Petty have all recorded classic albums. Here's a little teaser for you to sink your teeth in!
Sound City Studios closed in 2011, and is now used privately by owners. This documentary is to celebrate the life and memories that the artists have shared and experienced over its 42 year running. Some of the most iconic rock albums were produced at Sound City Studios, so it's closing is like the death of a genre. But Rock sure as hell ain't dead yet!
Not only has Dave Grohl made this documentary, there is rumours of collaborations with some of the artists featured in the said movie. New album coming up our way? We'll just have to wait and see!
No such announcements as to when this documentary will be released, but my guess is the Summer-time. I cannot wait!
