On February 1, 2013, Dave Grohl will make his directorial debut with Sound City – Real to Reel. The documentary chronicles the illustrious history of the now defunct Sound City Studios in Los Angeles. At last weeks 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit, McCartney, Grohl, Chris Novoselic and Pat Smear debuted a new song called “Cut Me Some Slack” to much praise.
As it turns out the song will appear on the soundtrack for the film. The soundtrack features the likes of Paul McCartney, Trent Reznor (NIN), Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine), Tim Commerford (Rage Against the Machine), Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac), Jim Keltner (Too many to list) and many more. Grohl hasn’t revealed all of his plans for the film, but let’s just say they sound pretty big.
From Rolling Stone:
“After each premiere we could have a show with musicians,” he says. “They’d not only play music from the film, but from their catalogs as well. We could do it in a Hammerstein or Roseland and pack the bill with the coolest bands in the world . . . We aren’t far away from this. Pretty soon, everyone will hear what our big plan is. We’ve been planning it for a long fucking time.”

I was born, raised and currently reside in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. I founded Scents and Subtle Sounds on August 18, 2009 after deciding I needed an avenue to share my passion for music. I saw my first concert in 1994 and hundreds of shows later (and counting), live music still does IT for me.
