| A Proper Recognition To Music Legends
In a day and age where social networking and other new-age website mediums are pointing a middle finger to artists who struggled to get where they are, Sonic Highways restores the inspiration that is slowly being lost. Today, the music world is being hacked by those who believe views from those looking into a computer screen is the best gratifying experience. The world of musicians only playing music for their own ears is getting lost into history. Now, people are wanting cameras around every note being played, so they can become the next online star who obtains the spotlight for a short amount of time.

Dave Grohl begins this incredible journey by taking us to the old blues and punk rock routes of Chicago. He establishes the fact that many of the musicians didn't expect to gain a bigger audience than the 50 people crammed inside of a local club, or those listening on the side of a street. This is what I personally enjoy; fellow musicians who can enjoy music, without ever expecting it to leave the room. The gratification of playing it for a small amount of people, or just for yourself is greater than millions of views.

Though the caparison to the online digital age isn't addressed, the feeling when watching this series is, "how I f**king miss those days." Watching Sonic Highways is like dusting off an old record while sitting in a room listening and remembering. The series is an inspiration within itself.
