Grohl is directing and producing the film -- called "Sound City," appropriately enough -- and based on the teaser below, he interviewed many of the big-name rockers who recorded there.
"'Sound City' is a film about America's greatest unsung recording studio," Grohl said in a statement, according to Variety. "Deep in California's sun-burnt San Fernando Valley, it was the birthplace of legend. It was witness to history."
He's not exaggerating about the history part. Sound City was where Grohl and a couple of scruffy dudes from Seattle went in 1991 to record a little album called Nevermind. The studio's year-by-year list of recordings reads like a who's-who of the record biz since 1970, so even putting aside the Nirvana stuff, Grohl should have plenty of fodder for good stories.
"Like the dark hallways of Sound City Studios itself, it may not be pretty," Grohl wrote in his statement. "But it's fucking real."
