HBO airsan eight-part travelogue docuseries entitled Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways directed by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. The series follows the band as they visit famous recording studios across the United States while recording their new album. Grohl:
So once the music and the theme of each city was set, we traveled to each place and spent a week there. We’d get there, start recording and I would just run around town filming and interviewing as many people as I can. I did over 100 interviews. At the end of the week, I’d take all of my transcripts, put them on the floor, sit there with a pen and my journal and I reduce all of these stories into a song. I take from peoples’ backgrounds, anecdotes, the environment — it’s like reporting. It’s musical bungee jumping.
