Dave Grohl directed what looks to be a super rad movie called Sound City.
It’s about a historic recording studio in Los Angeles whose walls have been witness to some of the greatest and coolest rock n roll musicians from the late 60s up until 2011.
The list includes Tom Petty, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Grateful Dead, Elton John, Nirvana, Tool, Rage Against The Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age and Metallica to name a few.
From the trailer it seems that Grohl’s ultimate goal is to highlight that with all the new technology available in audio production, music is losing the chemistry between people that made some of the bands of the past so great. The goal is also of course to pay homage to this building that has produced so many of the albums that we’ve loved over the years.
I’m stoked for its release in February of 2013. I’ll definitely be passing to the left before I go see this one. Who’s in?
