Dave Grohl, of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame, has made his directorial debut with Sound City, a documentary on the L.A. recording studio where Nirvana made Nevermind – arguably the most groundbreaking album of the ‘90s. Grohl claims that the custom Neve soundboard at Sound City is what helped define Nirvana’s music and gave him his career. Grohl uses archival footage and contemporary interviews with bands who recorded at Sound City, like Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Rick Springfield, The Pixies, and Rage Against the Machine. Not only does Grohl chronicle the history of Sound City, he reunites famous musicians like Stevie Nicks and Paul McCartney with the Neve in a 24-hour marathon recording session of all new songs.
