Foo Fighters man Dave Grohl debuted his new supergroup, the Sound City Players, at the Sundance Film Festival.

Grohl, who was permanently accompanied by his Foo Fighters band mates throughout the 3-hour show, introduced a rolling cast list of rock legends to the stage to play with him as he guided the crowd through a live history of music recorded at the Sound City Studios, reports Rolling Stone.

Nirvana's Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty, Nate Mendel and Chris Shiflett, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk were among the 17-strong line-up of musicians who took to the stage.

All the featured artists have recorded at the infamous Sound City Studios and appear in Grohl's documentary about the recording studios in Van Nuys, California, which premiered at the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Friday (January 19).

The film also features Paul McCartney, who teamed up with Grohl to front a band comprising the former members of Nirvana at the 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert in New York on December 12.

A studio recording of 'Cut Me Some Slack', the song the short-lived supergroup recorded for the film, was put online on December 17. Nirvana recorded their 'Nevermind' album at Sound City in 1991.

This promises to be a busy year for Grohl. He'll be delivering the keynote speech at this year's South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas on March 14, as well as drumming on the forthcoming Queens Of The Stone Age album.
