Dave Grohl Promotes New HBO Documentary At TCA Press Tour

At the summer press tour of the Television Critics Association (TCA) held in Beverly Hills, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl sat down to talk about his upcoming HBO documentary which debuts on October. Speaking to a group of journalists and columnists, Grohl appeared uncomfortable at first.

As noted by the Associated Press, Grohl's phone suddenly rang which prompted him to say, "Sorry, I'm new to this." When he fished his cellphone from his pocket, the microphone clipped on his jacket fell off.

It was an unusual sight for the TCA's well-mannered audience. But the 45-year old rock icon's enthusiasm and passion for the project was evident. Grohl said that the eight-part documentary, titled "Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways," is a love letter to the history of American music.

The idea came of directing the series came to him when the band recorded its latest album "Wasting Light."

“I thought maybe we should do a documentary about the band, about the last 14, 15 years, that would explain why we were making a record in my garage,” he said.

It's worth noting that Grohl also directed the successful 2013 documentary "Sound City," which chronicles the story of a legendary studio in California. Grohl said that combining music  and documentary will reach a whole new audience.

“Music can seem a little one-dimensional. But when you get a little deeper into the artist or the song, it creates this emotional connection,” he added.

Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways debuts in October, and the band is planning to release an album based on the documentary in November. The series features Grohl and bandmates Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, and Nate Mendel. It will also feature notable musicians including Dolly Parton, Buddy Guy, Gibby Haynes, Allen Toussaint and Gary Clark Jr.

According to Grohl, the plan was to visit eight legendary studios in eight cities across the U.S. In each studio, the band will record one song for the album. Grohl didn't write the lyrics of the song until the last day of the episode because he wanted to be inspired by the experiences and the interviews.

"These recording studios are hallowed ground; they're churches and monuments to me," he said.
