Dave Grohl - Dave Grohl Confirms Sound City Studios Documentary

Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl has confirmed reports he's making a movie about the studio where Nirvana recorded landmark album Nevermind.
Reo Speedwagon star Kevin Cronin revealed news of the project last year (11), hinting he'll be a part of the untitled Sound City Studios documentary, and now Grohl has opened up about the film in the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
He says, "When Sound City closed last year, it was a very sad day. That place was like a church. The list of people that recorded there reads like a virtual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame... We recorded Nevermind there back in 1991.
"That funky old place had the best drum room in world. The drum sound at the beginning of Smells Like Teen Spirit - that's Sound City.
"I decided to make a film about that feeling you get when you put five guys in a room, hit 'record' and the hair on the back of your neck stands up."
Grohl is still being coy about his debut as a documentarian but he adds, "Expect some epic jam sessions."
