Rocker Dave Grohl has scored his own TV series – he’ll front a new show about America’s most famous recording studios.

The Foo Fighters frontman will host and produce the as-yet-untitled program for HBO network.

The series will expand on Grohl’s acclaimed Sound City documentary, in which he chronicled the story of fabled Los Angeles recording space Sound City Studios, where Nirvana recorded their classic album “Nevermind.”

For the new series, Grohl will go beyond the Los Angeles city limits and visit recording studios in New York, Chicago, Seattle, and Nashville.

Grohl will also interview musicians, like KISS star Paul Stanley, Heart’s Nancy Wilson and The Eagles’ Joe Walsh, who have recorded albums at each facility.
