DAVE GROHL’S “SOUND CITY” DOCUMENTARY TO SHOW AT SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL
The new documentary produced and directed by Foo Fighters Dave Grohl is set to premier at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The film is about the now defunct Sound City Recording Studio in Van Nuys, California and about the countless legendary albums that were recorded there. Grohl’s idea for the film came when he bought the 1972 recording console that belonged to the studio. The same one used by artists such as Rage Against the Machine, Neil Young, Tom Petty and others.
Grohl said the following about the film in an announcement on Monday:
“As a first time director, I am humbled to be able to share my passion for songwriting and storytelling with this incredible cast of legendary musicians, as seen through the extraordinary story of America’s greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City. Being included in this group of artists is a true honor, and the Sundance Film Festival is the perfect place to premiere a film about craft, integrity, and passion for art. I am over the moon!”
We recently reported that Grohl would also be hosting a radio show based on “Sound City” on SIriusXM. You can get more information about the documentary here
