Dave Grohl's Sound City Players supergroup will include John Fogerty and Stevie Nicks.
Former Creedance Clearwater Revival singer John and and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Stevie will join Dave when he unveils the all-star band at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah on January 18.
The band will play at the festival to premiere Dave's new film, 'Sound City', a documentary about the recording studio of the same name in California.
The supergroup will also feature Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic; Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen; Foo Fighters members Chris Shiflett, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear and Nate Mendel; Rage Against the Machine's Brad Wilk and Slipknot's Corey Taylor, among others.
The band are expected to play songs from the soundtrack to 'Sound City', which was written and recorded especially for the film.
One song from the soundtrack, 'Cut Me Some Slack' - featuring Sir Paul McCartney - has already been debuted, by the former Beatles singer with Dave, Krist, and Pat at the 12.12.12. benefit concern for victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York last month.
