Dave Grohl's Sound City Players take over Hollywood
Dave Grohl's Sound City Players, after debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, came out for a star-studded repeat performance last night. As NME reports, Grohl and company put on a three-and-a-half-hour, 38-song set at the Palladium in Hollywood.
Foo Fighters served as a Grohl's de facto backing group for much of the night, and a jaw-dropping array of guests joined them onstage. You know, just: Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty, Nirvana's Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Rage Against the Machine's Brad Wilk, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Queens of the Stone Age cohort Alain Johannes, and Rick Springfield of Rick Springfield fame.
Thanks to YouTube, we can watch fan footage of the evening. Above, check out Nicks and Foo Fighters performing Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman," the night's nearly 10-minute finale. Below, watch Nicks and the crew do the Mac's "Dreams" and "Lanslide," followed by Springfield rattling off a clearly Grohl-pleasing "Jessie's Girl." At the bottom of the page is Fogerty showing off some surprising finger-tapping (where you at, Marnie Stern?!) before renditions of CCR's "Keep on Chooglin'" and "Bad Moon Rising."
