I know we have some people who work in the music industry here, Zeb and Oof, and some musicians. Who might find this really interesting.
I'm just your common music lover but totally nerded out over this. I found it on Amazon Prime for streaming. Cool music history for those into that.
Dave Grohl recorded the album Nevermind with the band Nirvana at Sound City Studios. Grohl was inspired to create the documentary after he purchased several items from the studio including the Neve 8028 analog mixing console, when the studio closed in 2011.
Sound City Studios was located in the San Fernando Valley, amidst rows of dilapidated warehouses. The little-known recording studio housed a unique recording console and a reputation for recording drums. Artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Kyuss, Slipknot and Nirvana recorded groundbreaking music at the studio. The film tells the story of the studio from its early days in 1969 until its closing in 2011. It then follows Dave Grohl's purchase of the studio's custom analog console, which he moved to his personal studio, Studio 606. Famous musicians who recorded at Sound City reunite at Studio 606 for a jam session and to make an album of "all-new all-original songs, each one composed and recorded exclusively for the film within its own 24-hour session on that console."
