Dave Grohl has released a trailer for his forthcoming documentary about the legendary Sound City studios.
Sound City closed its doors in May 2011 after decades recording some of the best known rock albums of all time. Classic records produced at the studio include albums by Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool, KISS, Slayer, Guns N' Roses and Metallica. Quite impressive, then.
Grohl had since purchased the Neve mixing desk that sat at the heart of Sound City, to install in his home studio.
He is currently preparing the documentary for release which will speak to the rock stars who recorded there, telling the story of its rich history.
"'Sound City' is a film about America's greatest unsung recording studio," Grohl said (via Billboard). "It was the birthplace of history. It was a witness to history. It was home to a special few, intent on preserving an ideal. An analog church. A time capsule. The last bastion of a craft defied by technology. It was rock 'n' roll hallowed ground. And it was our best-kept secret.
"Now I want to tell its story," he added.
