Dave Grohl and Rick Springfield jams together for Sound City project

Dave Grohl, the former Nirvana drummer, is currently jamming with Rick Springfield for the upcoming documentary, Sound City. He is working on the legendary Sound City recording studio and companion soundtrack.

While he’s not divulging all the details, Vig did recently talk to Billboard about the film. According to the producer, the impetus for the film came after Grohl purchased the vintage Neve console from the now-defunct studio. After that, he wanted to tell
the story behind the hallowed halls of the musical landmark where everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Nirvana recorded their albums.

“He’s probably interviewed 150 or 200 people so far,” said Vig. “Now we’ve been working on musical collaborations to be a part of the soundtrack for the film.” And that’s where things take a turn for the bizarre. Over the past few months we’ve heard about
collaborations with Slipknot/Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor, Stephen Pearcy and Warren DeMartini of Ratt, and now Vig reports that Rick Springfield came in to play with Grohl and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age. All of these off-the-wall collaborations
are completely unexpected and can only hint at the whole-lot-of-awesomeness the project aims to deliver when it’s finally done.

As for the interviews, Vig said that the stories about the studio run the gamut.”Some of the people’s experiences there were great, and some people’s experiences, like anything, were negative or there’s a black cloud or whatever,” explained Vig. “We’re not
trying to paint a shiny picture, like everything is always perfect when you go into a recording studio, and I think that is what is sort of fascinating to see how all these people opened up.”
