Foo Fighters frontman-turned-documentarian Dave Grohl paid a visit to The Colbert Report last night to promote his new film Sound City, which documents the legendary Sound City Studios where the likes of Nirvana’s Nevermind, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors and Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush were recorded. Grohl discussed his memories of recording there, how he came to make his directorial debut, and his currently touring super group the Sound City Players — made up of Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), John Fogerty, Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick) and Rick Springfield, as well as regular Josh Homme collaborators Alain Johannes (Eleven) and Chris Goss (Masters of Reality) and Foo Fighters members. Sound City has received rave reviews and I’m hanging out to watch it, and you can currently buy the film and its star-studded soundtrack over on the Sound City website. Grohl and the Sound City Players will make their TV debut performance on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight.
