UK TV Alert: Sound City feat. Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham & Mick Fleetwood debuts on BBC 4 Tonight

Dave Grohl's American rock documentary Sound City set to make UK TV debut on BBC Four

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl's documentary about Los Angeles' notorious Sound City will make its UK TV debut this month.

The rock legend, who was also a member of band Nirvana, directs, produces and appears in the feature length documentary about the history of American Rock.

It looks at some of the famous faces who called the shabby studio their second home, building some of the strongest careers in rock music.

Some of the albums created there include Nirvana's Nevermind, Neil Young’s After the Gold Rush, Fleetwood Mac’s eponymous album and Johnny Cash’s Unchained.

And through interviews, photos and video footage, Dave shows us how Mick Fleetwood met Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, leading to them joining Fleetwood Mac.

Looking at the rise of digital editing, he also discovers exactly why Butch Vig, Frank Black, Trent Reznor and Lars Ulrich all chose to work in an analogue environment.

The film ends when Dave brings some of the great names together at his Studio 606 to record a new album on the original Sound City Neve console.

It culminates in new performances from Rick Springfield, Stevie Nicks, Lee Ving, Josh Homme, Trent Reznor, Krist Novoselic and Sir Paul McCartney.

The documentary had a one-off screening in the UK in February last year.

Sound City will air on Friday, January 31, at 10:15pm BBC Four.

Why are no more comments allowed on the Stevie Nicks Seven Wonder Coven Video. There was some great dialogue and now it's stopped. I don't understand why you don't want this to be a place of discussion. Your best thread shut down for comments. huh???

@ first Anonymous comment ... perhaps it had something to do with space? Maybe only so many comments per thread are allowed?

More documentaries like 'Sound City' need to be produced. I love stuff like this.

The greatest feat for artists is to convey emotion. Some just want to have their say. When you lay out your heart for the world to see? You are an Artist. Be it music, painting, sculpture, dance, sewing, whatever. If one inspires in others, i say job well done.
Oh, by the way, im a designer of things. I hardly ever get any recog.
Stevie Nicks, if it were possible, i would nominate you for the highest award in your craft
