The Sound City Players were a supergroup formed by ex-Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters guitarist and lead-singer Dave Grohl. They consisted in a collaboration of Grohl with Krist Novoselic ex-Nirvana, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age, Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick, Rick Springfield, Stevie Nicks, Alain Johannes, Paul McCartney, and many more.
The first public word of Sound City was when Paul McCartney performed with the surviving members of Nirvana: Grohl, Novoselic and Smear live at the 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief in New York. Together they premiered the collaborative song “Cut Me Some Slack”. Grohl then revealed his plans for the Sound City film and soundtrack. McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana performed the song a second time the following week on Saturday Night Live.
Grohl then formed the Sound City Players with many of the musicians who appeared in his film Sound City about the recently closed Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California. Their debut was at the Sundance Film Festival’s Park City live on January 18, 2013.
Grohl and seven other band members, including Nicks on lead vocals, appeared on Late Night with David Letterman on February 14, 2013. The Sound City Players appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 5, 2013 and on Ellen on March 7, 2013. Grohl promised that their final show was the concert at the SXSW music festival on March 14, 2013.
