Sundance: Grohl tells ‘Sound City’ story in directorial debut

Sundance Film Festival » Nirvana and Foo Fighters member creates documentary about legendary studio.

< Previous Page

Grohl was in a unique position to tell the story of the legendary studio, but he was grateful to find other voices. "I didn’t expect everyone to be as in love with Sound City as I did," he said.

But the studio, tucked away behind train tracks and crumbling warehouses in the surface-of-the-sun-hot San Fernando Valley, represented what makes the heart of rock beat, a sound that continues on. "It’s not dead," Grohl said.
