Dave Grohl docu-series based on 'Sound City' idea coming to HBO
Classic Rock Magazine reports that HBO has decided to expand upon the topics explored in Grohl's "Sound City" documentary that debuted in January 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival by launching a show, produced and directed by Grohl, that will take the musician around the world to the most famous recording studios. At each stop, the artist will record music and speak with some of the artists who have worked there.
Studios to be featured include Electrical Audio in Chicago, Inner Ear in Washington D.C., Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, Calif., and many others, including stops in New York City, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles and of course Seattle. Interviews include the legendary artists like KISS' Paul Stanley, Heart's Nancy Wilson, The Eagles' Joe Walsh and Ian MacKaye, who is head of Dischord Records.
UPDATE: The Foo Fighters and HBO have announced that their upcoming eighth album is being made as part of the series, with one song being recorded in each city. Every lyric was written in an unprecedented experimental style: Grohl held off on putting down words until the last day of each session in order to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.
