Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has officially been granted his very own TV show, set to air on HBO channel during the winter schedule.

The show will expand the idea behind Dave's "Sound City" documentary and see the frontman visiting and recording music at a number of iconic studios.

As Classic Rock reports, the list of the studios Grohl will pay a visit to includes Steve Albini's (Nirvana, Page & Plant) Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, Don Zientara's Inner Ear studios (Fugazi, Henry Rollins' S.O.A., Grohl's Scream) in Washington DC, Rancho De La Luna studios (QOTSA, Arctic Monkeys, Mark Lanegan) in California, as well as studios in New York, Seattle and Nashville.

Some of the featured musicians include the likes of KISS frontman Paul Stanley, Nancy Wilson of Heart, the Eagles' guitarist Joe Walsh and Dischord Records boss Ian MacKaye.

Speaking of Joe Walsh, the guitarist has recently confirmed his guest spot on the upcoming Foo Fighters album. "I was a Foo Fighter for two days, I joined the Foo Fighters for two days and I played on a track of theirs that's gonna come out," he told Billboard.

    Will there be obligatory boobs in it since it's on HBO?
    yup, and since every other word out of Grohl's mouth is a profanity, he is a perfect fit.
    Haha. I don't know why you're getting down voted for that. I love the guy, but it's true. Grohl loves his s***s and f***s.
    UG is totally missing the main premise of the show! It's to promote foo fighters new album fools!! They record in 8 cities in legendary recording studios with great musicians sitting in. Such a wise move on their part. I swear you have to do stuff that's never been done or no one cares to listen too full albums it's all just singles bullshit.

    Jesus, how can he juggle so much stuff at the same time?
    Mr. Baloonhands
    a hell of a lot of Fresh Pots that how. I hope Justin likes making coffee cause it looks like he'll be extra busy making it by the tons haha
    Maybe the super new concept behind their record is that nobody in the Foo Fighters is playing on it. Actually scratch that... That's the deal with the various pop artists of today.
    Oh man I can't wait for the Steve Albini episode, the man makes damn good sounding records.
    Dave! please make it so that you and the main guest preform a song together every episode! make this show epic!
    "Some of the featured musicians include the likes of KISS frontman Paul Stanley, Nancy Wilson of Heart, the Eagles' guitarist Joe Walsh and Dischord Records boss Ian MacKaye." One of these is not like the others.
    1. "What if I say I'm not like the others?" Sorry. Had to. 2. Ian MacKaye. Yeah. I wouldn't have seen that one coming. Dave does have a lot of roots in punk rock, though.
    Not as gay as a bald troll with shitty sunglasses and a lice-infested beard.

    Is this part of the new Foo Fighters album cause a lot of the stuff they're doing seems to be somehow based around visual media...
    Got to say is it really necessary for him to do this, doesn't he have kids?
    What does him having kids have to do with it? It's documenting the making if the new record, he would've been away from home anyways
    I hope they have a good mix (no pun intended) of technical and casual stuff. I would like them to do a more technical approach but is HBO.
