(Banana 101.5) A while back we reported some details on a documentary Dave Grohl was putting together on the studio where he recorded 'Nevermind' with Nirvana Sound City Studios. According to what Grohl said recently, we can expect some "epic" performances in addition to the usual rock-doc fare.

The now closed Sound City Studios was the grounds where many incredible rock album were recorded, just a few of the artists who've recorded there include Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Nine Inch Nails, Willy Nelson, and Eric Clapton. We initially learned of Grohl's documentary secondhand from REO Speedwagon frontman Kevin Cronin, who briefly teased the project before realizing he should probably let Dave deliver the news. The topic came up in a Q&A featured in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and Grohl talked about what inspired him to helm the project:

"When Sound City closed last year it was a very sad day. That place was like a church. The list people that recorded there is like a virtual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We recorded 'Nevermind' there back in 1991. That funky old place had the best drum room in the world. The drum sound at the beginning of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit?' That's Sound City. I decided to make a film about that feeling when you put five guys in a room, hit "record" and the hair on the back of your neck stands up. Expect some epic jam sessions." more on this story
