A few years old, but a very cool interview all the same. http://www.npr.org/2013/03/08/173823162/dave-grohl-finds-musics-human-element-in-a-machine The subject of this very short interview is centered around the 1973 Neve 8028 console that he purchased from Sound City, when the famous studio finally shut the lights off for good in 2011. I think that Grohl should be commended - not only for saving a piece of music history - the list of albums that were recorded and mixed through that desk is incredible - but also that he still uses it. Personally, I'm glad that the console is still being used, as opposed to becoming an inanimate museum piece, protected and untouchable behind a glass barrier, or worse, bubble wrapped and stored in some dark, dank warehouse somewhere. Excerpt from the interview: "When I first got the desk we had to clean it out; there was like 40 years of cocaine and fried chicken inside..." LOL - who knows? Maybe that was the source of that magical sound. Anyway, enjoy. -d.
