Producer and Garbage drummer Butch Vig isn't sure what exactly will be on the soundtrack to Dave Grohl's documentary about Sound City Studios. Vig has been producing the sessions for the film, which is about the studio where Nirvana recorded Nevermind. His last work on the project was a recent session with Grohl and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. Vig tells NME, "We're not really sure how it's all gonna end up at this point, but it's been fun. There's still quite a bit more work to do and we hope to finish up in the next three or four months, and try get it all mixed and completed sometime in the fall."
