Episode#1 :: Chicago
Chicago has been a mecca for such diverse acts as Cheap Trick, Etta James, Smashing Pumpkins, Herbie Hancock, Chicago and Kanye West. This episode chronicles the city’s musical evolution from the blues of Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters in the ’50s and ’60s, to the quintessentially midwestern rock of Cheap Trick in the ’70s and the punk rock of the ’80s, as exemplified by Naked Raygun. At Electrical Audio studios, Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters connect with owner Steve Albini, a Chicago musical icon as a founding member of Big Black and Shellac, who produced and recorded Nirvana’s third album, In Utero. Later, they’re joined by Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen to record "Something from Nothing," the first song on Foo Fighters’ new album.

Sonic Highways is a 2014 American documentary miniseries directed by Dave Grohl and written by Mark Monroe. The documentary was made concurrently with Foo Fighters’ eighth album, Sonic Highways, and was broadcast on HBO. Grohl described the project as "a love letter to the history of American music". Each of the eight episodes is presented as an exploration of the musical history of a different American city through a series of interviews by Grohl. The group is also shown incorporating what they learned from the interviews into the writing and recording of a new song in or near that city. The series debuted on October 17, 2014.
The series eight episodes show the Foo Fighters traveling to eight legendary studios in eight different cities across the United States of America to write and record their album, Sonic Highways. The cities visited were Chicago, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle and New York. Studios involved with the project include Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio in Chicago; Rancho De La Luna in California; Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, and Arlington County, Virginia’s Inner Ear Studios.
Each episode features interviews with artists who recorded at the respective studios. Among them are Dolly Parton, Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat and Fugazi, Paul Stanley of Kiss, Joe Walsh of Eagles, Nancy Wilson of Heart, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Zac Brown, and Gary Clark, Jr. There was also collaboration with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in New Orleans, which led to a live performance with Trombone Shorty. The episode begins with a quote from a song that was recorded in their respective location and ends with a music video for that same song with animated lyrics appearing in the background.
The eight-episode HBO show is getting the deluxe treatment for its home-video release, with bonus footage added to each installment and extended interviews with President Barack Obama, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Chuck D of Public Enemy, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Joan Jett, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Joe Walsh and others.
Foos frontman Dave Grohl’s second directorial outing, Sonic Highways followed 2013′s Sound City documentary, and was described by Grohl as “a chronicling of a journey to unravel the fabric of our musical identity . not only the making of our most ambitious album . this is Sound City on steroids.”
Part behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Sonic Highways album, part travelogue and “love letter to the history of American music,” the series shows the Foo Fighters traveling to eight cities (Chicago, Washington DC, Nashville, Austin, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle and New York) and recording a song at each stop after talking and playing with local musical icons along the way. As the press release announcing the digital and DVD/Blu-ray release points out, this affected the sound of Sonic Highways as well as the songwriting: Grohl “held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews for the HBO series, and other local personalities and experiences that became part of the process.”
