Music lovers around Australia will be in lock down

Last December David Grohl sent a letter to fans that said 'you are receiving this because you rock'. It went on to say that he started a project with one of his good friends Jim Rota ("his "drinking buddy"), from the band Fireball Ministry. Both came up with a "crazy idea" that they should tell the story of the studio they had loved hanging around for years, and their heartbreak to see it close. It soon "blossomed into something truly epic", and neither of them imagined their project would become what it is now. "Like all the best things in life" he said "It just happened."

I am excited to report that David Grohl has taken on the role as director in a new documentary called 'Sound City', that will screen for one night only in a world exclusive in cinemas around Australia on Thursday the 31st of January at 9.30pm.

Sound City Studios was state-of-the-art when it opened in 1969. It soon became synonymous for producing rock & roll classics. Many artists recorded there, like Fleetwood Mac, Joe Cocker, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Metallica and Nirvana.

We will experience the studio through interviews with musicians and producers who worked at Sound City Studios over the years. Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, the Queens of the Stone Age, Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Cheap Trick, and Rick Springfield, Stevie Nicks, and Paul McCartney are on the film's soundtrack.

It will screen at 9.30pm on 31st January at cinemas around Australia.
