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.
Foo Fighters may be on a break, but fans shouldn't fear about their future. First of all, relationships seem to still be intact with the band's members turning up at the musician's recent 'Sound City' concert to help him promote his documentary. And secondly, Dave Grohl himself says that he's got a plan in place for his return to the band.
Dave Grohl may have successfully upstaged his own ‘Sound City’ documentary screening at Sundance when he followed it up with a concert for the ages. The live spectacle featured his Sound City Players and included 17 different guest musicians playing over three hours of music at the Jan. 18 Park City, Utah event.
The 'Sound City' documentary gave Dave Grohl a chance to work with a who's who of music, while also showcasing the legendary Sound City studio and using the board that's been responsible for creating so many great albums. Among Grohl's collaborators were Paul McCartney and Corey Taylor, who appear on the first two singles from the 'Sound City' soundtrack, and the musician-turned-director has spoken more about both pairings.
It's hard to follow in Paul McCartney's footsteps, but if there's anyone with the balls and pedigree to do it, Corey Taylor would be that man. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman, who seemingly has his hands in everything, was one of the participants in Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary and a new song featuring Taylor from the soundtrack has surfaced online.
