Sound City documentary trailer. This film is being directed and produced by Dave Grohl and he says,
“Sound City is a film about America’s greatest unsung recording studio. Deep in California’s sunburnt San Fernando Valley, tucked away behind the train tracks and dilapidated warehouses, it was the birthplace of legend. Sound City is a film about the truth, the craft, and the integrity of rock ‘n’ roll.”
Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you…
Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. There were times when I didn’t think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up. But… I can’t give up this band. And I never will. Because it’s not just a band to me. It’s my life. It’s my family. It’s my world.
Yes… I was serious. I’m not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it’s a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It’s one of the reasons we’re still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it’s good to just… put it back in the garage for a while…
But, no gold watches or vacations just yet… I’ll be focusing all of my energy on finishing up my Sound City documentary film and album for worldwide release in the very near future. A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I’ve ever worked on. Get ready… it’s coming.
Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami… I’m sure we’ll all see you out there… somewhere…
One by One became one of the Foo Fighters most beloved albums, but the first go round of songs vanished and were mysteriously dubbed the Million Dollar Demos. Two of the songs from the first recording session, “Have It All” and “Comeback,” have resurfaced showing the great disparity between the two tracks from start to album-pressed finish.
“The film takes us on the 16 year journey of the Foo Fighters, from Dave Grohl and Pat Smear’s surviving the aftermath of Nirvana to Dave, Pat, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett’s rise to the top of the charts and the stages of stadiums worldwide. … These Days builds from day one to the creation of their new album - recorded in 100% analog. No computers, no software - just a band recording an album to tape in Dave Grohl’s one-car garage.”
That’s right, Foo Fighters are set to take the stage at the Grammy Nominations Concert which will be televised live on Dec. 3 on CBS from the Nokia Theatre in L.A. This isn’t the actual Grammys date, however. The actual Grammys aren’t until February 8th, 2009. This show coincides with the grand opening of the new Grammy Museum in the L.A. Live complex. Tickets for this show can be found there as well. Sadly this place isn’t a new venue in Los Angeles, but it is a place for traveling exhibits, andÂ we look forward to seeing some good exhibits in the near future worth evading.
