Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced that there will be a second series of their very impressive ‘Sonic Highways’ television show.
Speaking with NME, Grohl acted very coy saying: “It might or might not be international. It might someday be international. It might only be England, or be England and other places, or maybe it’s places in America and people from other countries that are inspired by these places in America,”
“I mean of all places in the world, England and the UK just seems like it would be like shooting fish in a barrel, ya know? There’s just so fucking much here.”
In the first series, the American rockers document the making of their latest studio album also titled Sonic Highways.
Dave Grohl directs the miniseries, each episode takes place in a different city, Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington D.C. and New York.
The documentary explores the musical significance of each city, its musical characters and chronicles the importance of each music studio they record in.
In each city the band record one song with a local legend. Featured in the series are, Fugazi, Paul Stanley (Kiss), Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Arcade Fire and President Obama.
Grohl even held off writing lyrics until the last day of each session, so he could soak in the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.
The Foo Fighters frontman says the series is a “love letter to the history of American music.” Each episode explores the unique identity of the musicians and identifies how the city they were raised in influenced their musical sound.
