DAVE GROHL BRINGS SOUND CITY PLAYERS TO 'LETTERMAN'

Dave Grohl and members of the Sound City Players performed on Late Show With David Letterman last week after the ensemble played in New York City. Joining Grohl on the program was Stevie Nicks, who sang the song "You Can't Fix This" from Grohl's new documentary Sound City. Grohl also spoke with Letterman about the film, which tells the story of the famed Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California where Nirvana's Nevermind and many other rock classics were recorded. He recalled, "We walked in, and it was a dump . . . a terrible place. But if you put the drums in this spot in the big room and hit 'record,' it sounded like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit.'"
Grohl directed the film and interviewed dozens of musicians who recorded at Sound City, including Nicks, Neil Young, Lars Ulrich of Metallica, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor and many more. We asked him if any artists actually turned him down.
