We've got something cool for you today. Foo Fighters' fantastic/ridiculous/awesome Dave Grohl is making his debut as a director/producer with the documentary Sound City, and we've got a few exclusive clips. Hit the replies to watch his bandmate Pat Smear and Fear frontman Lee Ving recount their first musical memories.
Confirming widely circulated rumors, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters announced today that he will direct and produce a feature Documentary film, Sound City about the infamous recording studio in Van Nuys, California. The film was conceived by Grohl after purchasing the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The console, 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, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Fear, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, and countless other musical legends over the past 40 years.
Foo Fighters have made their famous Reading Festival 1995 set available for streaming online. The show took place in the first year of the band's existence and you can listen to it in full here. Could this be a not-so-subtle hint for this year's line up?
