Supergroups are not really a novelty or a shock, but what Dave Grohl is planning is just crazy: he wants to create a group called the Sound City Players, with Fleetwood Mac‘s Stevie Nicks, Nirvana‘s Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear (long time colaborator, Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s John Fogerty, Foo Fighters‘ Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen, Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk and more (not announced yet). Wow!
How will this even work, one can wonder; one thing’s for sure – they’re gonna have a hard time even fitting all those players on a single stage, let alone fit all the egos! But you just have to admire these huge ideas coming from Dave Grohl, and seriously speaking, who would turn him down?
All these questions will be answered pretty soon, when Sound City Players – the band at this at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and they’ll also release a soundtrack for the film “Sound City – Real To Reel“. Tracklist is as follows:
