Sound City…ELEVEN Out Of Ten Stars!!

It seems that these days, I watch less movies than I used to…maybe my attention span is getting shorter.  But yesterday, I sat down, and fully enjoyed Sound City, a film directed and produced by Dave Grohl from Nirvana and The Foo Fighters.  Sound City was a dirty recording studio set among a bunch of old warehouses in Van Nuys California, but it had an amazing analog Neve console, and an impressive list of clients, including Neil Young, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, and Nirvana, just to name a few.  The documentary was supposed to be about the analog Neve console, which Dave Grohl purchased when the studio went out of business.  But it ended up being the story of a great (albeit dirty) studio that produced some great music for great musicians.  Actually, the rise and fall of that studio.  You see, over the years, digital replaced analog, until there was no longer a use for the studio.  The good news is that Dave Grohl set that analog Neve console up in his own studio and uses it!  The movie, of course goes much deeper, and I highly recommend you give it a watch…it’s two hours well spent.
