Airdate: Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways
This documentary series, created and directed by Dave Grohl, commemorates 20 years of Foo Fighters.
Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways sees the band travel to eight legendary studios in eight different American cities, to write and record their latest album, Sonic Highways. Over the eight episodes the band will also interview famous artists who have previously recorded at the respective studios.
Grohl describes the show as a “love letter to the history of American Music” as it features music legends ranging from punk icon Ian MacKaye to the most recognised artists in country music Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton. Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways gives a raw insight into the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process of creating the band’s eighth studio album.
Raking in 11 Grammy Awards and selling over 25 million records worldwide, the “Fooies” continue to dominate the rock ‘n’ roll music scene as one of the world’s biggest bands. Previously they have released the hugely successful rockumentary Foo Fighters: Back and Forth in 2011.
