GROHL WITH IT: SOUND CITY DOCUMENTARY

Alt’s most lovable workaholic, aka Dave Grohl has been making a movie about Sound City Studios – the legendary LA recording studio that’s tattooed onto the very eyelids of rock ‘n roll folklore.

Over the past 40 years, at least one game-changing album has been recorded at Sound City every decade including Nirvana’s Nevermind, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors and Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled debut.  Rumour also has it that a number of Sound City luminaries like Trent Reznor and Tom Petty are recording some sort of superstar soundtrack for the project.

Although one thing that isn’t mentioned in this 25-second teaser, which should probably carry an epilepsy warning, is that some absolute turkeys (like perennial rock doc talking head and honorary juggalo, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor) are involved too. But like anything Grohl-related, we’ll take the rough with the smooth.
