Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl has unveiled a series of teasers for his forthcoming documentary on California's iconic Sound City Studios.

The teasers feature artists and producers recalling their memories of the studio – where Nirvana's seminal 'Nevermind' was recorded as well as Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours', Neil Young's 'After The Gold Rush', Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers' 'Damn the Torpedoes' and Rage Against The Machine's self-titled debt.

You can watch the clips featuring Pixies' Frank Black, Metallica's Lars Ulrich and producers Rick Rubin and Trent Reznor – below.

Grohl's film – titled Sound City, will tell the story of the iconic studio, featuring interviews with a series of artists and producers. The Foo Fighters frontman apparently came up with the concept for the documentary last year, when he bought the Neve 8028 recording console from the studio after they closed down for commercial use in May 2011. Of the film, Grohl has said:

Sound City is a film about America's greatest unsung recording studio. Deep in California's sunburnt San Fernando Valley, it was the birthplace of legend. It was witness to history.

Earlier this year, 'Nevermind' producer Butch Vig told NME that he had been back in the studio with Grohl and his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic recording material for the film's soundtrack. "We're not really sure how it's all gonna end up at this point but its been fun. There's still quite a bit more work to do and we hope to finish up in the next three or four months, and try get it all mixed and completed some time in the fall," he said.

The film will be distributed by Roswell Films, which is part of the Foos' Roswell Records label. Mark Monroe will write the movie while Paul Crowder will edit.
