Dave Grohl is headed to HBO, where he will produce and host a yet-to-be-named documentary show that will premiere at the end of 2014.
The show will follow the Foo Fighters frontman as he visits and records music at studios around the world, Rolling Stone reports. While at the studios, he will also interview musicians, with Paul Stanley of KISS, Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Nancy Wilson of Heart, and Ian MacKaye of Fugazi already on the roster.
The show will likely take cues from Sound City, the 2013 documentary Grohl directed and produced about a Los Angeles recording studio. When the film came out, Grohl told Rolling Stone: "Sound City is about having kids see this film and be inspired to go to a yard sale and buy a guitar and start a band and play in the garage and then take over the world. Because that can still happen. It happens all the time. To me, personally, it's the most important thing I've done because it's not for me." Watch the Sound City trailer below. --Catherine Garcia
