Dave Grohl, formerly of Nirvana and now the drummer for Foo Fighters, has released an intimate documentary titled Sound City that chronicles the story of the renowned recording studio in Van Nuys, Los Angeles. For over three decades Sound City Studios has been a mecca for some of the biggest names in music. Its walls have been graced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Neil Young, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and more.

Dave’s documentary is a heartfelt homage to this legendary studio which he used when recording his album ‘Wasting Light’. His film highlights how this establishment kept its doors open despite economic struggles and industry changes. It even provides an insight into the analogue mixing console that made Sound City famous – a Neve 8028 – which now resides in Dave’s own studio.

The documentary features interviews from many of rock music’s biggest stars as they recall their memories working at Sound City Studios. These include Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac who talks about her experience recording her 1981 album ‘Bella Donna’ at the studio and Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails discussing how he was inspired to write one of his most successful singles ‘Closer’ from 1994’s ‘The Downward Spiral’ using their mixing desk.
