    It’s been worth watching, so far.

    I hope this Sound City docu is better than the rest of the tedious pish that’s on right now. Turgid, regurgitated and bland.

    BBC4 really doesn’t do itself any favours sometimes.

    Just turned on are they doing it chronologically?
    Would have thought Creep more rifftastic than Paranoid Android.
    Have they had any Stooges?

    Ah, the first woman on the show, Kaki King.

    A bit more interesting (and notional nod to equality) and then back to the most bland of all: Foo Fighters. Music for middle management.

    More meh.

    This riffs at the BBC is somewhat lacking in riffs really.

    WTF was Paranoid Android doing on it?

    I guess the lack of anything super interesting or left-field is a bit of a reflection on how conservative the BBC has been over the years…

    Godfather of Grunge? Buzz Osborne?

    EDIT, Neil Young…BBC no likey, clearly

    Mmm, there was a fair bit of guitar, but a bit thin on riffs after the first ten minutes.
    Some shocking performances, though. AC/DC taking the proverbial, ffs?

    Muddled. Reckon the BBC and I have a different definition of a riff although started off OK.

    As well as being disappointed that Neil Young wasn’t shown, where the heck was Free?

    Sound City great until the over-long second half with Grohl showing off his famous mates. Needed an editor with some balls, but a nice incite to that famous studio.

    A night about riffs and Sound City with no Slayer?
    Wish I’d turned over at 10:00…

    Mmm, not all that impressed by that, started off ok but then fizzled off and died. Must admit disappointed no mention of Led Zeppelin.

    Especially as it was the theme to TOTP

    although it was not the Led Zep version that ToTP used:
    “CCS are best known for their instrumental version of Led Zeppelin’s 1969 track “Whole Lotta Love”, which got into the UK Singles Chart in 1970,[1] and was used as the theme music for the BBC pop programme Top of the Pops for most of the 1970s, and, in a remixed version, between 1998 and 2003. Technically, the TOTP theme was not by CCS, but was recorded by the TOTP orchestra one morning before the day’s rehearsals. Nevertheless, the band was conducted by John Cameron on that occasion and many of the musicians were CCS regulars. This enabled the production to tailor the tune to the correct duration and, more importantly, avoided the weekly payment of royalties to the record label.”

    God, you really are a load of moaning old **** aren’t you?

    Yeah, I know all about that, but if you’re going to show a programme about the riff why not acknowledge Led Zeppelin?

    Can anyone explain why The Runaways were included in the documentary? Did they have great riffs that I’m completely unaware of? I’ve googled them and am still no wiser. I know of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, obviously, but don’t think I’d ever heard of the Runaways before.
