The résumé of Dave Grohl -- leader of Foo Fighters, all-star collaborator and rock-doc director -- is forever morphing. Those roles merged with his band's audio-visual experiment Sonic Highways, an album and eight-part HBO series documenting the recording histories of eight U.S. cities and featuring such local luminaries as Dolly Parton (Nashville), Heart's Nancy Wilson (Seattle), Kiss' Paul Stanley (New York) and Minor Threat's Ian Mackaye (Washington, D.C.). And as the project's April 7 DVD release approaches, Grohl is contemplating a sequel that would expand Sonic Highways' geographic reach.

"There might be a season two," Grohl, 46, tells Billboard. The first studio he has set his sights on: London's Abbey Road. "It would be fun to interview Paul McCartney or George Martin, or David Bowie or Iggy Pop [in] Berlin, or the Happy Mondays in Manchester," he says. Other bandmembers suggest the Australian studio where AC/DC recorded its classics, or Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica.

An HBO spokesperson tells Billboard: "Sonic Highways was a gem of a series and HBO is now a super fan of Dave Grohl's and the Foo Fighters, who are part of the HBO family. We can't wait to hear what magic he has up his sleeve next."
