Anyone seen this?

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.

Quote:
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."

Sounds cool man! I'll have to check it out. My roommate's a musician and huge Nirvana fan, I'll have to see if he's familiar with it. Thanks for the heads up!

Saw this a couple months ago. Excellent doc. After watching it I got a whole new motivation for my work. I would kill for that Neve 8028 though.

I wonder what Grohl bought it for?

If you take inflation into account, in today's $ that Neve board cost $325,516. :shock:

Even $65k for that board now is astronomical. For me anyway. Point to point wiring. All hand built... :drool:

There is another 8028 for sale online for 189K. Got some $ I can borrow?

Good interview:

Some quotes I like:

Quote:
A block away there’s a Best Western hotel next to a Taco Bell. When Metallica made an album there, James Hetfield stayed at the Best Western. James f@#$%^ Hetfield stayed at that f@#$%^ s@#$hole hotel so that he could be two blocks away from the best-sounding room in the f@#$%^ world, you know.


and

Quote:
The first song we recorded there was ‘In Bloom’. We set up, tuned up and got big sounds. I’d never heard my drums sound like that before. It was the first time we’d heard Nirvana sound like that. It didn’t sound like Bleach, you know. It didn’t sound like the Peel sessions we’d done. It didn’t sound like any of the demos. It sounded like Nevermind. And when I heard the toms, the kick and the snare on ‘In Bloom’ – it was an instrumental take, I don’t even know if Kurt did a guide vocal – our jaws dropped, because it sounded real, it sounded aggressive, it sounded really powerful. After what first day we knew it was gonna be alright.

yeah its really good, I actually even bought it from itunes. I appreciate Dave even more then ever as a passionate, incredibly talented musician and historian of rock music in general, too bad his music stinks :-) with the exception of probot.
