Not have Sound City yet?  Is it because the recession is biting?  Is your drug habit getting in the way of your music buying?  Or are you just lazy?

Regardless, I’m giving some away: I’ve a copy of the soundtrack ‘Sound City: Real to Reel’, a copy of the documentary on DVD & also one on Blu Ray.  To win either email or tweet @fooarchive with SOUND CITY & your chosen format (so, SOUND CITY DVD, etc)

Winners will be chosen randomly on Thursday and recieve an e-mail/tweet to ask for their address.  Again, the contest is only open  to UK residents… but if your overseas and can use a relative’s address – go for it.

Done & dusted – thanks!

This Is a CallThe Life and Times of Dave Grohl
‘Someone called and said Kurt died. I just f*****g lost it.’ He has sold over 40 million albums. He’s been in bands that have changed popular music forever. He saw his best friend commit suicide. He starts supergroups. He’s the nicest guy in rock.
From Nirvana to Foo Fighters, from brotherhood to bitter rivalry, from breathless highs to lifeless lows, Paul Brannigan gives an unparalleled, intimate and extraordinary account of the life and times of Dave Grohl.
In 1990, little-known punk-metal upstarts Nirvana added a new drummer to the band. They were soon to become a global phenomenon – but as we all know, things went wrong. Dave's friend Kurt, frontman of Nirvana, took his own life, plunging the band and their future into chaos. His friends’ grief was mirrored by worldwide sorrow to an unprecedented degree.
Defying expectations, a knack that was soon to become his trademark, Grohl refused to see it as the end. In 1995 his new band, the Foo Fighters, rose to join the pantheon of rock deities.
The 'wonder years' were by no means calm. The spotlit existence imposed by his celebrity status, the bellowed vilification by his critics and his high-speed lifestyle proved a dangerous cocktail.
With an account of Grohl’s life that is more personal than anything written before, more startling, more thrilling, more heart-rending and more inspiring, Paul Brannigan reveals Dave fully for the first time.
This is the story of the man who changed music forever.
