Foos TV series wins 2 Emmys

The Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways documentary series won two Emmy awards at last night’s annual ceremony in Los Angeles.

The eight-part production, which tied in with the album of the same name, was successful in the Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming an Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming categories.

It had also been nominated for another two awards.

Foos mainman Dave Grohl originally said he’d never work the same way again after the stress of putting together the album, which saw the band working in eight different US cities while exploring the musical history of each.

But he recently revealed: “There is going to be another Sonic Highways season. It might or might not be international – it might only be England, or England and other places.”

The band enjoyed additional UK chart success on Friday when 2009 compilation Greatest Hits returned to the top 20 in the album charts, as a result of their British appearances earlier in the week.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
