Dave Grohl knows how to give the fans what they want.
After Grohl told the world last week that he’s formed a band to play music from his upcoming Sound City Movie, punters were salivating over just who he would be jamming with. Today we got our first set of names.
Oh you want pic proof? OK. Sound City Movie Band practice day 2. Wonder who’s coming to practice tomorrow…
One look at the pic and it’s pretty clear that Foo’s drummer Taylor Hawkins is behind the kit, but the identity of the large bald guy with the guitar got people scratching their heads.
That was until a super-helpful comment from fan Brett Hurley was posted. Hurley said: “For those wondering, that’s Alain Johannes on the right. He’s the touring guitarist for Them Crooked Vultures and has done work with Queens of the Stone Age.”
Watch this space to see who turns up in the rehearsal room next.
The Sound City Band is set to make its first appearance at Park City Live in Utah on January 18. Grohl outlined his plans for the band to Rolling Stone last month, saying it’s something he has been planning for “a long fucking time”.
“After each premiere we could have a show with musicians. They’d not only play music from the film, but from their catalogs as well. We could do it in a Hammerstein or Roseland and pack the bill with the coolest bands in the world . . . We aren’t far away from this. Pretty soon, everyone will hear what our big plan is. We’ve been planning it for a long fucking time.”
The Sound City movie is set for its first screening at the Sundance Festival on January 17, followed by a public release on February 1.
