DAVE GROHL Now A Documentary Director!


Sound City Studios was a recording studio in Los Angeles, California. It was where legends recorded their music: Tom Petty, Metallica, Johnny Cash, Rage Against The Machine, Fleetwood Mac, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Nirvana to name a few. It was one of the few studios which did not go down the digital avenue of recording. Unfortunately, it closed down two years ago. 

Foo Fighter frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl wanted a piece of that studio. He wanted to have the analog console because for him, he'll be owning an integral part of rock and roll history. "I consider that studio, and especially their mixing console, to be as important to me as any band I've ever been in, and when it closed, I was heartbroken. I said, 'if you ever want to sell me that mixing desk I'd love it.'

The owner Tom Skeeter eventually decided to give it to Grohl. In return, the 44-year old musician made a documentary which he premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

"Sound City" highlights Dave Grohl interviewing and jamming on the spot with musicians like The Beatles' Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, and other artists who have recorded at the legendary studio.

"I wanted everyone in the film to inspire others. I don't want kids to be confused and think you have to go to college to study music. You can just go into an old guitar shop, buy the biggest piece of junk and then write a beautiful song and become the biggest band in the world. These things can happen. That's ultimately what I wanted from Sound City - to inspire the next generation," said Grohl.

He admitted that the process of making the film kept him busy now that The Foo Fighters are on hiatus. 

"I'd never aspired to ever be a film director. But hey, it was fun." the musician-turned-director said.
