The film tells the story of Sound City, a legendary recording studio located in Van Nuys, CA, and was inspired when Grohl purchased the Neve 8028 recording console built in 1972 from the studio since its closing (along with his personal connection to the studio dating back to 1991, when Nirvana recorded Nevermind there).
The recording console is considered to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment and has captured such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick, Guns and Roses, Fear, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and TONS of other legends.
