Dave Grohl made an appearance Thursday at an HBO promotional event to discuss his upcoming series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. As previously reported, the eight-part mini-series chronicles the Foos recording their new album around the country, while also learning about different cities' rich musical histories.
According to Rolling Stone, the series will feature Grohl interviewing a wide variety of musicians, as well as President Obama. At the HBO event yesterday, Grohl said that he also sat down with Country icons Willie Nelson and DollyParton for the episode about Nashville.
Grohl spoke extensively about what he learned while making Sonic Highways. He said, "Music can seem a little one dimensional…but when you get a little deeper into the artist or the song, it creates this emotional connection,” according to Deadline. He added, "These studios, they are churches, monuments, history has been made in these s***holes all over the country."
Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways will air in October, and the band's new album is slated for release at some point this fall.
