Dave Grohl Brings "Sound City" to Sundance
Sharing his new supergroup with the world, Dave Grohl debuted Sound City Players at the Sundance Film Festival where he appeared at the Cinema Cafe Presented By Chase Sapphire Preferred at Filmmaker Lodge on Tuesday (January 22).
On Friday night, the Foo Fighters frontman brought 17 other musicians on stage for an over three hour concert. The star-studded stage was graced by talent like Rage Against the Machine’s Brad Wilk, Queens of the Stone Age’s Alain Johannes, Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Masters of Reality’s Chris Goss, Lee Ving, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Slip Knot’s Corey Taylor, Rick Springfield, John Fogerty, and Stevie Nicks.
Growing out of Dave's "Sound City" documentary, which follows the story of the famous recording studio, the eclectic group all had ties to the Van Nuys studio.
Speaking at the film's premiere, Mr. Grohl admitted, "I consider this to be the most important thing I’ve ever done, artistically, of all the albums I’ve made, of all the bands I’ve had the pleasure of being in. I really feel like the Sound City movie, its intention is to inspire the next generation of kids to fall in love with music as much as I did."
