Dave Grohl has proved to be a talent musician, but what about a documentary film director? Grohl’s latest project is a rock documentary called Sound City, and today he unveiled the project’s poster through the Foo Fighters’ Twitter feed.
Sound City documents the studio of the same name, located in Van Nuys, Calif. The documentary chronicles the music and experiences that happened within it’s four walls. Grohl has included interviews and appearances from many who worked at Sound City, including Mick Fleetwood, Tom Petty and Trent Reznor. Grohl was inspired to make Sound City after purchasing its Neve console that countless artists used, including Nirvana.
In true Grohl fashion, he joked about his upcoming documentary calling it the “Dumb and Dumber of rock docs.” Then later descried it 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.”
Check out the trailer for Sound City below.
