Last week, Dave Grohl announced he would be forming a band, Sound City Players, to support his upcoming documentary about Sound City Studios. The lineup for the Sundance Film Festival performance on Jan. 18 in Salt Lake City includes a sampling of virtually everyone appearing on the “Sound City” film soundtrack.
The group includes the surviving members of Nirvana (Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear), Foo Fighters members Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, not to mention Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Alain Johannes of Queens of the Stone Age, producer Chris Goss, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Fear singer Lee Ving, Rage Against the Machine‘s Brad Wilk, the Geraldine Fibbers’ Jessy Greene, and the Wallflowers’ Rami Jaffee.
Sadly, it looks like Paul McCartney, who makes an appearance in the film and on the soundtrack, will not be part of the super “Sound City Players” assemblage.
While tickets for the concert are sold out, fans can still check out the movie, coming soon to theaters.
