In the Spring 1991, I packed all my belongings into an army surplus duffle bag, put my drums in some dusty road cases, rolled up my sleeping bag and jumped into an old, beat up Ford van headed down to Los Angeles from Seattle. I was a 22 year old starvung musician without a cent to my name of a place to call home. My destination: Sound City.
The following 3 weeks changed my life forever.
Sound City is a film about America's greatest unsung recording studio. Deep in California's sun burnt San Fernando Valley, tucked away behind thetrain tracks and dilapidated warehouses, it was the birthplace of legend.It was witness to history, it was home to a special few, intent on preserving an ideal. An analog church, a time capsule, the last bastion of a craft defied by technology. It was Rock and Roll hallowed ground. And it was our best kept secret... Now I want to tell it's story.
Documenting a personal journey beginning 20 years ago that culminates in a full circle musical reunion, Sound City is a film about the truth, the craft and the integrity of Rock and Roll.
Like the dark hallways of Sound City Studios itself, it might not be pretty... But it's for fucking real" - Dave Grohl
