Dave Grohl and his troupe of Sound City Players did a special gig in Los Angeles last night to mark the film’s première in the famous American city.
And if we somehow get a carbon copy of the show in Australia and Grohl brings the same crew when he visits in March, a seriously ace show is in the works.
NME reports that The Sound City players played a three-and-a-half hour set at The Palladium in Hollywood, with over 38 songs pumped out.
Joining Grohl on stage throughout the night were Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Rick Springfield, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Krist Novoselic of Nirvana, and Queens of the Stone Age collaborator Alain Johannes.
Grohl and his Foo Fighters bandmates – Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear – played for much of the set, acting as an unofficial backing band.
The climax for the night was Stevie Nicks’ segment of songs, in which she performed Fleetwood Mac classics Dreams and Landslide and her track for the Sound City soundtrack, “You Can’t Fix This.” The final song was a 10-minute rendition of Rumours’ track “Gold Dust Woman,” which a fan has conveniently filmed from in the pit.
