Description

This eight part series follows Foo Fighters as they make their 8th album.

Directed by Dave Grohl, each episode is devoted to different American musical landmarks, chronicling the histories, cultures, environments--and of course the human beings—that define each city’s unique musical identity. Set in Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., Sonic Highways features appearances from the local legends who have become the musical and cultural ambassadors of those cities, including Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Dolly Parton, Rick Nielsen, Bad Brains, Chuck D, Gibby Haynes, Allen Toussaint, Carrie Underwood, and a host of others.

Described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music, Grohl and bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear, along with producer Butch Vig, based themselves at a legendary studio integral to the unique history and character of each of these great American musical capitals.

One song was recorded in each city as the band delved hard into the local musical currents: discovering how each region shaped these musicians in their formative years, and in turn the impact those people had on the cultural fabric of their hometowns.
