A big congrats to Dave Grohl and the ‘Sound City: Real to Reel’ soundtrack winning the 2014 Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. Producer Butch Vig, who oversaw the production for the disc, was on hand to accept the honor.

“Woo! I’ve got to dedicate this to Dave Grohl,” said Vig. “It was really Dave’s vision, enthusiasm and energy that made Sound City come to life. It’s an absolute pleasure working with him everyday. I love you hombre.”

“A big shout to Sam and everyone at Studio 606, our technical crew and the lovely James Brown who made it sound kind of sweet,” added Vig. “Also a shout out to all the incredible musicians we collaborated with on ‘Sound City.’ It was truly a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sound City! Thank you.”

The soundtrack included contributions from members of Foo Fighters, Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, Rage Against the Machine‘s Brad Wilk, Queens of the Stone Age‘s Joshua Homme, Paul McCartney, Nirvana‘s Krist Novoselic and Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor among others.
