TCA: Dave Grohl Talks ‘Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways’ HBO Docuseries

Dave Grohl was TCA’s only one-person panel today as he took the stage to talk about his eight-part documentary series following himself and his band Foo Fighters as they record their eighth album in eight different American cities. Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways debuts on HBO in October and the as-yet-untitled album will be released in November.

Grohl — who also directed the 2013 feature docu Sound City — said the idea for the series (coming on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the band) came to him when the previous Foo Fighters record was being made in his garage. “I thought maybe we should do a documentary about the band, about the last 14, 15 years, that would explain why we were making a record in my garage,” he said.
