Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl has made a documentary, Sound City: Real to Reel, about the legendary Sound City recording studio in Los Angeles. The movie features interviews with many musicians who made records there, including Corey Taylor (Slipknot's Iowa was recorded at Sound City). The movie's soundtrack features collaborations between these artists and Grohl, and "Can To Can't," a song featuring Corey, Grohl, Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Neilsen and Kyuss/The Obsessed bassist Scott Reeder. Listen to it here:
In a recent interview, Taylor described the project: "[Grohl] sent an email to me, basically explaining this huge project he was doing—the documentary around the infamous board that he got from Sound City [studios], which so many people have recorded on, myself included; [Slipknot] did Iowa on that board...He bought it, and I loved the idea that he was like, 'How many albums have been made on this board?'...He wrote the song, he sent me a demo of it and I was like, 'This is fantastic,' and I just basically wrote the first thing that came off the top of my head. He didn't even hear it until I went down there to record it. And I laid it down, and he was just like, 'Wow.' Because we did it old school—two-inch tape, take after take after take. And with that board, man. It was really, really cool."
