Grohl Wants To Take Sound City Global
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl wants to do a lot more shows with his Sound City Players, the all-star band made up of musicians who appear in his new Sound City documentary. The Players made their debut on January 18th at the Sundance Film Festival, where the movie premiered, and will also perform on the 31st to celebrate its Los Angeles opening. Grohl told Billboard that they won’t stop there, explaining, “We plan to do shows all over the world. When I came up with the idea of taking all these performers to the live stage a few months ago, my idea (was) to have video presentations between each performance. We’ll have that at the next shows.”
So far, the live lineup of the Players has included Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Rick Springfield and members of Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age and more.
