I guess it could be a tad cumbersome to come up with new things to do when one of your first bands changed the entire landscape of music and the one after that made you and multiple generations of your family financially secure for many centuries.
We’re speaking of Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters’ frontman, Dave Grohl. The latest project from Grohl comes in the form of a documentary titled, “Sound City,” based on the life of the music studio in Van Nuys, Calif. The studio was home to many recordings ranging from Nirvana’s own, “Nevermind,” to “After the Goldrush” by Neil Young. The super group of artists plays like an all-star team of acts that ever recorded at Sound City Studios, and a good sampling came together last night at the Kodak Theatre in L.A. to perform Credence Clearwater Revival’s, “Fortunate Son.” John Fogerty was in the mix, but the legendary frontman played second fiddle to Dave Grohl’s lead. Stevie Nicks wasn’t around last night, however, you can catch the film at Denver’s SIE theater until March 14.
