Before the Sound City Players debut gig, Grohl spoke at his documentary's premiere. "I consider this to be the most important thing I've ever done, artistically, of all the albums I've made, of all the bands I've had the pleasure of being in. I really feel like the 'Sound City' movie, its intention is to inspire the next generation of kids to fall in love with music as much as I did," he said.

Asked if he will direct again, Grohl cleverly remarked, "I started the Foo Fighters as a hobby, and that was 20 years ago." What's definitely next for the musician is a second gig for him and his Sound City Players.
