Presenting the inside story of Sound City recordings
Music enthusiasts in Plymouth and Exeter have a chance to witness a one-off cinema showing next week of Dave Grohl's first feature-length film, Sound City.
The Foo Fighters' lead singer, pictured, makes his directing debut in this documentary centred on America's greatest unsung recording studio, Sound City.
It is set deep in the San Fernando Valley, California, behind the train tracks amid dilapidated warehouses.
The studio, dubbed rock'n'roll's best kept secret, housed a one-of-a-kind recording console, and became the birthplace to the seminal albums that defined 20th century music.

Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty and Nirvana, to name but a few, all put magic to tape within Sound City's walls.
In the film, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Dave Grohl looks back at the studio's glory days and features interviews with many of the artists and technicians who worked at Sound City, including stars from the Queens of The Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Slipknot, Paul McCartney and Tom Petty.
Dave starts things off himself with a voiceover about his own first encounter with Sound City: "We were just kids... but we had these songs, and we had these dreams."
The film also examines how the rise of digital recording technology has changed the music business and impacted the way many musicians work.
It's being screened at the Vue cinemas in both cities at 8pm on Monday.
