'Sound City' and 'Pearl Jam Twenty' to Air on VH1

Dave Grohl's Sound City documentary and Cameron Crowe's Pearl Jam Twenty are headed to VH1's Rock Docs series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sound City, directed by the Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer, tells the story of the beloved studio near Los Angeles where Nirvana recorded their 1991 classic Nevermind. The film also features artists including Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo and Trent Reznor, who have all recorded or done work at the now defunct analog studio.

The New Immortals: Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam Twenty, meanwhile, traces the band's early years as the musicians first come together, deal with their fast-rising fame and decide to step away from it. Almost Famous director Crowe also packed in more than 1,200 hours of rare and never-before-seen footage of Pearl Jam, and tracks the rockers over the years as they continue their legacy through their 20th anniversary.

Sound City will air on August 17th, and Pearl Jam Twenty will air on October 12th. Pearl Jam's next album, Lightning Bolt, will be out October 15th.
