Dave Grohl is stepping out from behind his guitar, and getting behind a camera. The Foo Fighters frontman has released the trailer for his documentary, Sound City, in which he makes his directing debut.
Sound City, named after the Studio City, CA, recording studio the doc features, delves deep into the legendary studio and the equipment that produced so many incredible records. The trailer features some of the best of rock 'n' roll, including one of my personal inspirations, Stevie Nicks.
Even from watching the trailer, you know this documentary is rich with music history, passion, and untold stories of what the industry and the record-making process used to be about. Descriptions of the brown, shag-carpeted walls and the grungy hate-it-or-love-it atmosphere fully immerse you in the era that was Sound City. And who better to bring that world to you than the King of Garage Rock himself?
Grohl does an unbelievable job of laying out exactly what it was that made music an art form and what it meant to really make a record. Hey Dave, if this whole rock band thing doesn’t work out for you, I think you have a real shot in the moviemaking world!
To see the studio where “real men went to make records”, check out the trailer below.
