Watch: Kick Ass Trailer for Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' Sundance Doc
"Let's rock. Let's play. Let's record." Time to rock out to some mixers! Another highly anticipated Sundance 2013 film announced yesterday in the Premieres line-up is a documentary from Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, making his feature directorial debut. The doc is called Sound City and it's about the world famous Sound City Studios, where they recorded some of the greatest rock and roll legends. But it's more than just that. Through interviews and performances with the legendary musicians and producers who worked at America's greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City, we explore the human element of music, and the lost art of analog recording in an increasingly digital world. This looks superb.
Watch the full theatrical trailer for Dave Grohl's documentary Sound City, from YouTube:
Musician Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Nirvana is directing and producing the feature documentary Sound City about the infamous recording studio in Van Nuys, California. The film was conceived by Grohl after purchasing the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The console, built in 1972, is considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment, having recorded such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Fear, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, and countless other musical legends over the past 40 years. Sound City is set to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Fest in January, arriving in theaters February.
