Dave Grohl - Sound City Players rock London

Dave Grohl was joined by Rick Springfield, Rick Nielsen and Lee Ving for his Sound City Players gig last night (19.02.13).

The rocker's supergroup - which also comprised other members of Foo Fighters, including Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, singer and producer Chris Goss, Queens Of The Stone Age's Alain Johannes and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic - were joined for the ''marathon'' gig at London's Kentish Town Forum by the 80s icon, Cheap Trick guitarist and Fear frontman, who was performing in the UK for the first time.

Each musical guest played songs from their back catalogue, as well as some original tracks that were recorded during the making of Dave's Sound City Studios documentary, with the 'Everlong' singer only taking lead vocals on final track 'Surrender'.

At one stage, Dave - who reprised his Nirvana role as drummer for much of the set - joked about the relatively intimate size of the venue.

He said: ''In the Foo Fighters, we're used to playing stadiums. Now we're reduced to this.''

Famous faces in the crowd included Steve Strange and actor Simon Pegg.
