Summary

New series. The rock band commemorate their 20th anniversary by documenting the eight-city recording odyssey behind their latest album, Sonic Highways. Lead singer Dave Grohl takes his band on a tour of America, where they visit various studios and meet the musicians who have helped shape the country's vast musical wealth, and allow these experiences to influence the recording of their lyrics. The first stop is Chicago, where blues icons Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters made their names in the 1950s and 60s. At Electrical Audio Studios, Dave meets up with owner Steve Albini, who was a founding member of Big Black and Shellac and also produced Nirvana's third and final studio album In Utero.
