“In this age of technology, were you can manipulate anything, how do we maintain that human element?” – Dave Grohl
Dave Grohl has made a documentary about the history of Sound City Studios in LA. This small studio which had an amazing list of credits unfortunately closed in 2011 as it struggled to keep up with the changing audio world. When it closed down Grohl bought a lot of its amazing gear – the same vintage gear used to make so many great albums. That’s when he started putting this documentary together.
It features a lot of the great people involved in the history of the studio – as does the soundtrack which recently won two Grammy Awards.
You may know some of these names – Josh Homme, Nirvana, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Neil Young, Chris Lord-Alge, Rick Rubin, Rage Against the Machine, Metallica… and heaps more.
You can watch it now online for $8 and I imagine it will get cinema release soon.
