Speaking at the film’s premiere about the ‘Sound City’documentary, Grohl told the audience, “I consider this to be the most important thing I’ve ever done, artistically, of all the albums I’ve made, of all the bands I’ve had the pleasure of being in. I really feel like the ‘Sound City’ movie, its intention is to inspire the next generation of kids to fall in love with music as much as I did.” As to whether or not directing is an experience he would like to repeat, the musician coyly responded, “I started the Foo Fighters as a hobby, and that was 20 years ago.”

NEW SOUNDGARDEN VIDEO DIRECTED BY DAVE GROHL

_davegrohl

Dave Grohl has been a busy guy. Not only has he been putting the finishing touches to his documentary on Sound City Studios, but he has also been promoting his film’s soundtrack (with a little help from an ex-Beatle). Now the Foo Fighters frontman (and Nirvana drummer) can add a Soundgarden music video to his resume.

Soundgarden revealed yesterday that they were filming a new music video for the song “By Crooked Steps” with Grohl directing. The reunited grunge group posted candid on-set photos from the shooting via Instagram, including the one seen above. Though the video’s plot hasn’t been made publicly known, the photos indicate there’s some sort of biker-gang theme occurring in the video.

It’s unknown as to how soon we’ll get to see the video for “By Crooked Steps.” Either way, though, it’s just cool to know that Grohl and Soundgarden are collaborating in some fashion.

To quote Foo Fighters, “Second time’s a charm…” For the second time this week, the surviving members of Nirvana joined forces with Sir Paul McCartney to perform their song “Cut Me Some Slack” on national television. This time around, the all-star collaboration took place on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, where McCartney was making his fourth stint as musical guest. (It marked Dave Grohl’s 12th appearance on the show!) McCartney also teamed with the Eagles’ Joe Walsh for a rendition of “My Valentine”. Watch footage of both performances below (via The Audio Perv). In related news, Grohl has shared the studio version of “Cut Me Some Slack”, which you can also find below. The song is also available for download on iTunes, and appears on the soundtrack to Grohl’s film Sound City.
