"Sound City" focuses both on the history of the legendary Van Nuys, CA studio for which it is named--where such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Fear, Johnny Cash, Rick Springfield, DIO, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Queens of the Stone Age, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer and countless others have created classic after classic over the past 40 years--and on the ongoing fight to preserve the human element of music in an increasingly digital world. With its custom Neve console and uncanny acoustics, Sound City was an unlikely musical mecca. Through interviews with legendary musicians and producers, "Sound City" uncovers the magic within those walls and culminates with many of those legends creating a new album on that same console.
