A teaser trailer for Foo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl’s upcoming documentary about the studio where Nirvana recorded its landmark album “Nevermind” can be seen below.
A web site for the film has been launched at SoundCityMovie.com.
Before Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California closed its doors as a commercial studio in May 2011, it was used by a number of legendary musicians, including Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton and Nine Inch Nails. The studios on Cabrito Road off the 405 freeway have been refurbished and are now rented out to producers, though the Skeeter family still owns and manages the place.
