Dave Grohl Releases Trailer for Nerd-Boner Doc Sound City

While the Foo Fighters have been on hiatus, lead singer Dave Grohl has been putting the finishing touches on his cinematic love letter to Sound City Studios in Los Angeles.

Today the full trailer for Sound City was released online.

You can check out the studio's discography here. The studio's dumpiness seemed to create magic for the artists recording there, and its console -- a Neve 8028 -- is a hallowed piece of rock history. Grohl's purchasing the Neve led him to the idea for the film.

Since 1970, Sound City has been recording ground zero for acts like Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Tool, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and Mastodon, among many others.

The trailer is plum full of rock-star talking heads, including John Fogerty, Jim Keltner, Trent Reznor, Rick Rubin, and Grohl himself, and next year will have its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The movie is due to hit theaters sometime after that, and here is the trailer.
