Dave Grohl's "Sound City" Documentary

For those of you who've never been around the LA recording scene, you probably don't know about Sound City Studios. This was a sort of dumpy studio in an industrial part of town about as far away from the glamour of Hollywood that you can get, yet some of the best records of all time were made there. Artists like Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Cheap Trick, Elton John, Metallica, Foo Fighters, and so many more legendary artists made some of the greatest rock recordings of all time at the studio.

Unfortunately the studio closed about a year ago, but its memory lives on thanks to a new documentary by Foo Fighter's frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl called appropriately enough "Sound City." The film will debut at the Sundance Film Festival, but a trailer for it was just released, which you can see below. I can't wait!
