The first trailer for Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl’s directorial debut Sound City has been released.  The documentary focuses on the legendary Van Nuys, California studio Sound City, where countless artists such as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Nirvana, and Rage Against the Machine recorded tracks and albums over the past 40 years.  The doc includes interviews with just about every rock musician under the sun (Petty, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, Lars Urlrich, etc.), and looks very much like a love letter to analog.  Similarities are sure to be drawn to Keanu Reeves’ film vs. digital documentary Side by Side, as the artists that Grohl interviews discuss the importance of analog and the dangers of the music world going all-digital.  All in all, this looks like a must-see. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Sound City will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January and is set for release sometime in February. »
