Sound City Players on Letterman

Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary is about to drop, and for its soundtrack, he formed a new band called the Sound City Players and played a bunch of songs with famous friends. Grohl and fellow Nirvana survivors Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear famously debuted their song “Cut Me Some Slack” with Paul McCartney at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief show, but they’re not the only people involved. Last night, Grohl and a band of studio musicians appeared on Letterman, with Grohl talking about the movie and the soundtrack and the band, along with Stevie Nicks, playing the soundtrack cut “You Can’t Fix This,” which pretty much sounds like grunge Fleetwood Mac. Watch the interview and the performance below.

The Sound City soundtrack is out 3/12.

  1. “Watch the interview and the performance below.” Performance link?

  2. I watched the interview…where’s the performance?

  3. I like Dave Grohl, but I think the fact that he thinks that there isn’t very much “interesting” music being made nowadays speaks to how out-of-touch he’s becoming.

    • The song’s really great though.

    • The guy keeps hangin out with legends, so that’s kind of logical he became a rock conservative. Wait for his music encyclopedia (sure he’ll write one someday, the guy’s ego is bigger than his drum set). Anyway the track is good, and he still writes some good stuff with FF. It’s just that he’s addicted to spotlights.

  4. what an awesome collaboration of artists. I’m excited to check out the film – Sound City. here’s the trailer:

  5. this needs more guitars
