This past Saturday, Leah and I watched the documentary by Dave Grohl about the famous Sound City Studios, the unique mixing console at the studio, and the bands who used them both. Johnny Cash, Nirvana, Neil Young, Metallica, Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, and Rick Springfield are just a few of the many musicians who are featured in the movie.
The documentary really is a must watch for any music fan. Even if you aren’t a music a fan, it's well put together—filled with interesting facts and a bunch of fun moments. Some of my favorite parts involve the recording of the documentary’s soundtrack. Several big name artists all got together to write new music using Sound City's old equipment. Really awesome watching the creative process of these people. It also made me want to figure out a way to start playing my guitar again (sadly, I just don’t see that happening right now).
The documentary is also further proof of just how awesome Dave Grohl is. \m/
