Following news two weeks ago that Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy and Warren De Martini had recorded a song with Grohl, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour has revealed that he has been working with the Foos man. In a Tweet on January 18, Taylor said: “HUGE checks off the Bucket List today – did a song with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. Do the words ‘holy s--t’ say enough about it?!?”
It could well be a project about Sound City Studios. In 2011, Grohl said he was working on a film about the Los Angeles studio. “When Sound City closed last year it was a very sad day. That place was like a church. The list of people that recorded there is like a virtual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We recorded Nevermind there back in 1991. That funky old place had the best drum room in the world.
The drum sound at the beginning of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit?’ That’s Sound City. I decided to make a film about that feeling when you put five guys in a room, hit ‘record’ and the hair on the back of your neck stands up. Expect some epic jam sessions.”
