"Sound City" Release set for the first quarter of 2013 Features Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham & Mick Fleetwood

Dave Grohl plans to release "Sound City" in the first quarter of 2013 via Roswell Films.  The documentary will features interviews with Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks among others.

The idea for the film came when Sound City owner Tom Skeeter asked Grohl if he wanted to buy the Neve console used to record "Nevermind" and countless other legendary albums including Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours," Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Damn the Torpedoes" and Neil Young's "After the Goldrush." Grohl jumped at the chance.

Dave went down to pick up the console and Tom Skeeter gave Dave a print-out of all the albums recorded at Sound City using the console.  From this Dave thought it would be a good idea to put together a web series and pulled together about 50 people he wanted to interview about recording at the famous studio.  After some time the idea of put together a full-length feature came to him.  

Since then, Grohl has interviewed Petty, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, Trent Reznor, Frank Black and several others who have a connection to the studio.  You can check out snippets of the interviews on the Sound City Youtube Channel or visit the website

  1. That is one not-so-subtle filter they used on Stevie.
