This looks to be a good film.
On Monday, we brought you news that Dave Grohl’s filmmaking debut, “Sound City,” would premiere next month at Sundance. Now, the Foo Fighters frontman has unveiled the trailer for the upcoming documentary, which is named after the film’s subject: a grungy Van Nuys recording studio where Grohl’s old band Nirvana (among many other acts) created some of its best-known music.
The trailer boasts an abundance of famous rockers — including Tom Petty, Trent Reznor, Rick Rubin and two dudes from Ratt — opining on Sound City’s incomparable vibe. It also goes pretty deep on the value of the studio’s legendary Neve mixing board, which should convince music-nerd types that Grohl’s film is more than a drive-by affair.
