Sound City, the documentary by Dave Grohl about a studio where some epic albums were cut and mixed, includes a soundtrack. On that sound track will be a slew of different collaborations featuring the likes of Rage Against the Machine’s Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stone Age front man Josh Homme, Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and Pat Smear, Slipknot and Stone Sour front man Cory Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, and more. Grohl is featured on every track. More than likely, he’s either playing drums, guitar or singing. The soundtrack, titled Sound City – Reel to Reel, will be out March 12th. The documentary will be available February 1st. You can pre-order the collection on iTunes right now. The studio version of the song “Cut Me Some Slack,” featuring the remaining members of Nirvana and Paul McCartney, a song that was featured at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit concert, is available to purchase on iTunes right now (you get the tune when pre-ordering the soundtrack).
Oh, if you didn’t hear, Marilyn Manson had to get a ton of stitches in his ear. A posting last week to the Goth rocker’s Facebook page indicated that he got into a brawl overseas that ended up with him in the hospital getting two dozen stitches. The rocker was in Switzerland during the Twins of Evil Tour where he got into an altercation which left his ear bloodied. He claims to have gotten the upper hand in the fight. No other details were immediately available.
