A film about the truth, the craft and the integrity of Rock and Roll

Somewhere in the San Fernando Valley in California, behind rundown warehouses out by the railroad tracks once stood SOUND CITY STUDIOS. Those who've been there remember it for it's remarkable recording console and the great vibe that everybody got when they recorded. Dave Grohl's latest obsession is making a new movie that makes a case to recognize it as one the world's great - unsung recording studios.

The first album recorded there was Neil Young's After The Goldrush. Nirvana did Nevermind there, Fleetwood Mac - Rumours, Tom Petty - Damn The Torpedoes, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine, Johnny Cash and countless 80's bands recorded there.

If you care about how records are made and how this studio, in particular, somehow inspired and captured music magic, then this film is for you and me. It will make it's premiere at Sundance, will hit theatres in February and probably to dvd by the summer.
