Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Reveals 'Sound City' Poster Art
Featuring appearances by such music icons as Mick Fleetwood, Tom Petty and Trent Reznor, Grohl has dubbed the project the "'Dumb and Dumber' of rock docs."
Add director to the long list of titles that follow Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl’s name.
The rocker made it official today, releasing the official movie poster for Sound City, his documentary chronicling the storied history of the legendary Van Nuys, California recording studio, via the Foos’ Twitter feed.
Featuring appearances by such music icons as Mick Fleetwood, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor and more, Grohl has dubbed the project the "Dumb and Dumber of rock docs." On a more serious note, he described Sound City as "a film about America’s greatest unsung recording studio. Deep in California’s sunburnt San Fernando Valley, tucked away behind the train tracks and dilapidated warehouses, it was the birthplace of legend. Sound City is a film about the truth, the craft, and the integrity of rock 'n' roll."
Grohl was inspired to produce and direct the documentary after he purchased Sound City’s Neve console in 2011 when the studio closed. This particular board had been used in recordings by Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against the Machine and, perhaps most famously, Nirvana’s breakthrough 1991 album, Nevermind.
Reads a heading on the film’s Facebook page: “It was Rock and Roll hallowed ground. And it was our best kept secret.”
