Dave Grohl formed a new band for 'Sound City'
Who should be in the Sound City Players? Trent Reznor? Butch Vig? Paul McCartney?
The sights and sounds of Dave Grohl's directorial debut "Sound City" feature Paul McCartney, Trent Reznor, Tom Petty, members of Rage Against the Machine and more. Maybe some of those guys will end up in Dave Grohl's next performing project.
Grohl is introducing the Sound City Players at Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival this month, the event at which doc "Sound City" is getting its bow. The group will debut on Jan. 18 at Park City Live, though its members besides Grohl are under wraps.
"Sound City" chronicles the California studio of the same name, with interviews from some very famous rock bands; as previously reported, Grohl is also releasing a soundtrack/inspired-by album "Sound City: Real to Reel" in conjunction. The 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief was highlighted with a song from that compilation, "Cut Me Some Slack," with Paul McCartney performing with the surviving members of Nirvana (Grohl, Pat Smear, Krist Novoselic).
"Sound City," the film, heads to digital shelves on Feb. 1, while the soundtrack will hit on March 12. Grohl told Rolling Stone in an interview that he'd like screenings of the documentary to be amplified by a concert afterward, so the Sound City Players may make their Sundance stint into more than one stop.
Who would you like to see perform with Grohl at Sundance? I'm crossing my fingers for something icy with Reznor and melodic with Lindsey Buckingham.
