I'm really looking forward to seeing Sound City, the documentary about the legendary recording studio in Van Nuys, California that was directed by Dave Grohl (whose old band Nirvana recorded Nevermind there.) In case you're not up to speed on this, here's the trailer:
I'm so impressed with the passion and commitment Grohl has brought to this whole thing, not only with his work on the actual film, but in assembling many of the musicians who've recorded at Sound City over the years and playing live as the Sound City Players
. And since the studio closed, Grohal actually bought the vintage Neve recording console that was such a big part of the sound these artists achieved when they recorded there. (Here
's more about that.) Pretty cool..
opens today at Sundance Cinemas
