Foo Fighters have enough footage from their Sonic Highways series that they could make a season two.
To make their new album, Sonic Highways, the Foo Fighters traveled to eight American cities in search of the people and studios that made them major music centers. Over the course of their travels, they visited Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, DC and recorded one track in each along with local guest stars.
That trek was turned into the HBO series, also titled Sonic Highways, which finishes up tonight but, in looking at the cities visited, there seems to be a lot of room for expansion. Think along the lines of Detroit, Memphis, Philadelphia and other cities that contributed to the melting pot that is American music.
Dave Grohl appeared on The Daily Show with John Stewart earlier this week and, when Stewart probed him on all those missed cities and opportunities to which Dave simply responded “the might be a season two.”
Grohl has become a multi-media threat in the last two years, not only as a musician but also as a documentarian, first with the full-length feature Sound City about the Sound City Studios in the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles. Sonic Highways is his second foray into film making.
