"An intimate epic about music... In his directing debut, Grohl shows the instincts of a real filmmaker. Sound City hits you like a shot in the heart." — Rolling Stone
Sound City, the film, was conceived by Nirvana and the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl after he purchased the legendary custom-built Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The board, 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, Johnny Cash, Guns and Roses, Metallica, NIN, Rage Against The Machine and countless other musical legends over the past 40 years.
Grohl's personal connection to Sound City began with the 1991 recording of Nirvana's breakthrough album, Nevermind. Selling more than 30 million copies worldwide, Nevermind changed the entire musical landscape and forever altered the course of Dave Grohl's life.
Sound City, the film, celebrates the human element of music, as Grohl gathers some of rock's greatist artists both to recount classic tales and to create new music exclusively for the film and its soundtrack.
