Musician Dave Grohl’s documentary “Sound City” earned a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd at The MARC in Park City at the 2:30 p.m. world-premiere screening on Friday.

“I’m a director!” Grohl announced to the crowd before the show, while proclaiming that the documentary was the most important thing he’s ever done artistically. His aim? “To inspire the next generation of kids.”

After the screening, Grohl said filming the documentary telling the story of the legendary, now defunct recording studio “Sound City,” was always aimed towards the Sundance Film Festival, and featured an ambitious 13-month deadline.

Among the crowd were musicians who had been captured on-screen, including Rick Springfield, Grohl’s bandmates in Foo Fighters, Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, and Lee Ving, the lead singer of Fear. Many of the musicians were wearing jean jackets, emblazoned with the title of the legendary recording studio “Sound City” that lent the documentary its title.

When asked if he would make another film, Grohl said only if he found a story he’s just as passionate about. “I couldn’t make a movie about Whole Foods,” he said.

Gathering the musicians to reveal an insider’s view of the music world was easy enough, Grohl said. “I didn’t really interview them. I was just talking to my heroes about music. Half of them I’ve been drunk with before.”

Grohl and his band are scheduled to play a sold-out concert Friday night at Park City Live, 427 Main St., featuring many of the musicians who were interviewed for the film, including John Fogerty, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, survivng members of Nirvana, and Foo Fighters.
