Dave Grohl's Sound City Band

This popped up in my news feed this morning - Dave Grohl Sound City Players All-Star Band To Play Sundance Film Fest. I have been enjoying Dave Grohl's radio show 'Dave Grohl Presents Sound City' on the rock.

The Sound City Radio show focus on a specific time period at Sound City telling the story of a recording studio in Van Nuys, CA. After buying the studio’s famously custom-built analog recording console last year, Grohl had the idea to produce a film about its storied history. Bands such as Nirvana,Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Cheap Trick,Guns N Roses and many more recorded there, using that very control board for the past 40 years.
Episode one covers 1970-75 and features music from artists like Neil Young, Elton John and Fleetwood Mac. The episodes go up to 2011, with music from Tom Petty, Santana, the Grateful Dead, Jimmy Eat World, Metallica, Arctic Monkeys and Grohl's former group Nirvana, who recorded some of their seminal Nevermind at Sound City.

Now I here that Dave Grohl has announced the first live show from the Sound City Players on the Sound City film Facebook. Grohl said, “Hey guess what? Sound City Players. Rock Show. Jan. 18th Park City Live. Yup. That’s totally happening.” This will coincide with the Sound City film’s premiere at the Sundance film festival. It is not known who will actually be part of the band/perform with Grohl, but the Sound City soundtrack includes: Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear, Paul McCartney, Josh Homme, Trent Reznor, Stevie Nicks, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Corey Taylor, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Rick Springfield, and others.
