Dolly Parton, Chuck D and Joan Jett all to appear in Foo Fighters’ documentary

‘Sonic Highways’ is set to air in the UK on BBC Four later this month.

It’s no secret that the forthcoming Foo Fighters’ documentary is going to be star-studded. After all, the original trailer for the HBO series ‘Sonic Highways’ included a clip of the band’s frontman Dave Grohl talking to none other than Barack Obama (yes, that Barack Obama).

If you were under the impression that Mr President was going to be the needle in a haystack when it came to A-listers, think again. The band’s latest clip of the series has revealed another host of musical celebrities, with Dolly Parton, Chuck D and Joan Jett all among the crop.

The newest preview of the eight-part series (as pointed out by Consequence of Sound, because us UK lot sadly can’t get access to the latest clip) is an extended five-minute segment which also seems to boast longer tastes of their album tracks ‘Something From Nothing’ and ‘Feast and Famine’.

The full list of guests listed to appear in the newest clip is as follows: Dolly Parton, Chuck D, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, Heart, Mike D, LL Cool J, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Gary Clark Jr., and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Luckily - despite not being able to access HBO Go from outside of the US - viewers in the UK will be treated to the series in full, which it gets aired on BBC Four later this month.

“A love letter to the history of American music,” each episode is devoted to a different musical landmark in the U.S. - Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C - and will begin airing from Sunday 26th October.

The band’s new album ‘Sonic Highways’ is out 10th November on Roswell Records. Watch the original trailer for the accompanying series below.
