Twenty years ago, Dave Grohl formed and founded the Foo Fighters and recorded its self titled album in Seattle at Robert Lang Studios with local producer, Barrett Jones. On November 28, HBO will debut its Seattle segment of Foo Fighters Sonic Highways dedicated to the Seattle music scene, past and present.
Seattle is proud to be a part of Foo Fighters’ musical journey and honored to be featured in both the Sonic Highways documentary and new Foo Fighters album of the same name. The Foo Fighters are greatly appreciated for their contributions to the Seattle music scene over the last 20 years and for showing the world through their documentary the diversity, history, and importance of the Seattle music scene. Today, Mayor Ed Murray proclaimed November 28, 2014 to be Foo Fighters Day in the city of Seattle.
