On the heels of Nirvana’s Hall Of Fame induction and a bunch of surprise Foo Fighters shows, Dave Grohl has also set out to produce and host a documentary-style show for HBO due to air this winter. This won’t be Grohl’s first time behind the camera. In 2013, he directed Soundgarden’s “By Crooked Steps” video, as well as the feature-length documentary Sound City, about the legendary Los Angeles studio where Nevermind was recorded.
Grohl’s as-yet-untitled show will cover similar territory, as he teams up with Paul Brannigan, author of the biography This Is A Call: The Life And Times Of Dave Grohl, to travel the country, stopping at other historic studios to tell their stories. Stops so far have included Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago, Inner Ear Studios in Washington D.C., and more. Grohl is also traveling with the entire Foo Fighters crew in tow, so it’s probably safe to assume the guys are concurrently working on the band’s eighth album—a record expected to drop this fall, according to producer Butch Vig.
