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.
While the lucky few are flocking to Park City, Utah this coming week for the Sundance Film Festival premiere of Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary, there are a lot of other music fans chomping at the bit to check out the star-studded flick. Those cries for more screenings have been answered with a one-night theatrical release set to take place in a number of major cities later this month.
The 'Sound City' soundtrack is definitely star-studded, so when Dave Grohl revealed that he would have several guest stars join him for a concert celebrating the premiere of his 'Sound City' documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, there was naturally a lot of questions about who would be part of the Sound City Players. Now, after a little bit of arm twisting, it's so far been revealed that Corey Taylor, Taylor Hawkins and Alain Johannes will be among those joining Grohl in Park City, Utah, for the gig on Jan. 18.
