Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is swapping his mic for a megaphone.
According to Deadline, the lead vocalist for the famed rock band will make his directorial debut on a new documentary called “Sound City.”
The film is about the legendary Van Nuys studio, where his former band Nirvana; Neil Young; Fleetwood Mac; Tom Petty; Cheap Trick; and Guns 'N Roses all recorded music.
The doc is expected to include exclusive interviews with many of the musicians and producers who worked there throughout the years. Grohl may even pop up on the screen himself to tell the history of Nirvana’s multi-platinum “Nevermind,” which he recorded there in 1991 with bandmates Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic.
In essence, the doc will chronicle "a personal journey beginning 20 years ago that culminates in a full circle musical reunion,” Grohl said in a statement announcing the project. “Sound City is a film about the truth, the craft and the integrity of rock and roll.”
In addition to "Sound City," Grohl is also going behind the camera to work on a comedy for FX, Deadline reports.

I'm shocked by how much talent Dave has. He will go down as one of the greatest rock musicians of all time.
Kurt was a COWARD. Plain and simple.
Tomika Anderson should be fired for being an attention wh0re.
If Dave Grohl is an idiot, what does that make "Lil Wayne"?
So, the hyperlink I clicked on CNN's main page reads: "Lil Wayne signs $150M record deal?"
Ditto. CNN is messed up.

“Sound City is a film about the truth, the craft and the integrity of rock and roll.”
The TRUTH .. the INTEGRITY ... oh, please. Sounds like Grohl is drinking a bit too much of his own Kool-Aid.
Don't go there Dave....it's the Dark Side.... of your ego.
