Foo Fighters and HBO keep moving along with episode number five of Sonic Highways.
November 12, 2014. Los Angeles. Press Release.
Los Angeles has been the musical birthplace of such iconic and varied acts as The Doors, X, Guns N’ Roses, NWA, Van Halen, The Eagles, Jane’s Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and Pat Smear, an L.A. native whose band The Germs were pioneers of the city’s punk scene, visit legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, owner of a 1970s Sunset Strip club that became ground zero of the U.S. glitter rock scene and a stomping ground for the likes of Iggy Pop and The Runaways, Joan Jett’s first band. Dave and the Foos then head to the desert to record with Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh at Rancho de la Luna, an iconoclastic studio in Joshua Tree, where co-founder David Catching and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme reminisce about the 1990s Palm Desert underground.

Rota, John Ramsay; produced for HBO by Roswell Films and Therapy Content, in association with Worldwide Pants.
