Considering he gets to hang with his idols all day, Dave Grohl has a pretty cool life.
Most recently, he’s been playing shows with his Sound City Players, featuring Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Cheap Trick‘s Rick Nielsen and Rick Springfield. His documentary, Sound City, features interviews with all of the above, as well as Neil Young, Tom Petty, producer Rick Rubin and Barry Manilow. And the film’s soundtrack features Nicks, Fogerty, Nielsen and even Paul McCartney.
Although Grohl comes from punk rock beginnings (before joining Nirvana, he played in D.C. hardcore band Scream, signed to Ian MacKaye’s Dischord Records), he’s been rolling with classic rockers for a while, despite being a generation or two younger. So we decided we’d go through his classic rock credentials and roll out the highlight reel.
