In today’s Lori’s List, TV critic Lori Rackl talks about HBO’s new, eight-part docuseries, “Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways.”
Music lovers are in for quite a ride as Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters take viewers along on the eight-city tour that shaped the band’s upcoming album (Nov. 10) by the same name.
This innovative series explores how a particular city’s seminal performers influenced music and how each city shaped those artists.
These intimate, well-told stories become the ingredients for a new Foo Fighters song recorded at a local studio and performed at the end of each hourlong episode.
The captivating premiere centers on Chicago. It features some of the usual suspects, like blues legend Buddy Guy, along with lesser-known stories about the city’s punk rock scene and the impression it made on a young Grohl.
The series debuts at 10 p.m. Friday on HBO.
