It would seem that with Foo Fighters on hiatus, we wouldn't be hearing much from them, but that's certainly not the case. Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foos rocked New York City last night (Feb. 13) as the primary backing band for the Sound City Players, a collection of acclaimed musicians who came together to celebrate Grohl's new documentary and the storied music studio that the film chronicles.
Dave Grohl may be the hardest working man in the world of rock. Along with his highly decorated careers with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Probot, Them Crooked Vultures and many others, Grohl recently premiered his 'Sound City' documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, with the film now available to see in select theaters. Taking on yet another project, Grohl collaborated with Washington, D.C., group RDGLDGRN to record the song 'I Love Lamp.'
Dave Grohl had perhaps the biggest and most impressive celebration for his 'Sound City' film to date, with one rocker after another lining up to take the stage as part of his Sound City Players performance at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles Thursday night (Jan. 31). The gig followed a red-carpet premiere of the Grohl-directed documentary.
You can never get too much of a good thing and Dave Grohl knows that the magic provided by the Sound City Players is something that music fans need to see. After an epic performance at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month and another scheduled show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles Jan. 31, Grohl says he's open to staging more of the star-studded concerts.
