The history of Sound City and their huge recording device; exploring how digital change has allowed ‘people that have no place’ in music to become stars. It follows former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighter David Grohl as he attempts to resurrect the studio back to former glories.
I was a little skeptical going into this movie knowing that it was produced and directed by Dave Grohl who isn’t exactly known for making movies. But BOY, is he passionate about MUSIC. I learned so much about music’s history… from the Beatles to Fleetwood Mac to Nirvana to the current state of the industry. You will enjoy this movie if you are a music fan.
The movie is laid out like a typical documentary for the first 3/4 or so with interviews from many important figures who’s music has impacted my life. Let me just say Neil Young is the man! The last bit of the movie involves Dave Grohl recording new songs with famous musicians and everything sounds really good. It was very interesting to see how songs can be created with some collaboration and they sure make it look like a ton of fun.
I was definitely moved by this movie…laughing at times and really feeling the passion that these musicians have for this industry. It totally rocks guys.
