Dave Grohl Performs With Stevie Nicks and Sound City Players on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’

CBS Dave Grohl is making the talk show rounds this week, hitting up ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ to discuss and promote his ‘Sound City’ documentary. After an appearance on ‘Colbert’ earlier this week, last night (Feb. 14) was Letterman’s turn. During his interview with Letterman, Grohl recalled his first experience with the Sound City studio in Los Angeles, recording Nirvana ‘s ‘Nevermind’ album there in 1991. He explained, “We booked into that studio cause it was cheap. It was $600 a day and they were sort of kind of past their prime and their heyday. In ’73, they were state of the art, brown shag carpet on the walls was cool, but by 1991 it was not. So we walked in and it was a dump. It looked like a burned out Chi-Chi’s.” However, Grohl said the sound of the studio was undeniable and they got the “big” feel they were hoping for when recording the classic ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ He adds, “The 16 days we were there changed my life forever. ” In addition, Nirvana drummer-turned- Foo Fighters frontman added a performance to his ‘Letterman’ appearance, bringing out his ‘Sound City Players’ with Fleetwood Mac ‘s Stevie Nicks on vocals for ‘You Can’t Fix This’ from the film’s soundtrack. Nicks has a history with the Sound City studios as well, first meeting Mick Fleetwood there prior to she and Lindsey Buckingham joining the band. The group also recorded some of their finest music at the studio.

Mark Tremonti and His Band Visit U.S. Troops Stationed in Germany

American Forces Network – Photo Courtesy of Russell Toof Over the years as a member of Creed and Alter Bridge , guitarist Mark Tremonti has taken the opportunity to play for and meet members of the military, and now that he’s out on the road with his own self-titled band, that tradition continues. Tremonti and his bandmates Wolfgang Van Halen, Eric Friedman and Garrett Whitlock made a detour to the Warrior Zone in Heidelberg, Germany on Feb. 5, where they took the time to sign some autographs, talk to members of the military and take a few photos. Tremonti himself also spoke with American Forces Network’s Russell Toof about his experiences visiting the military. In a video interview (posted below), the Tremonti frontman says there was never any hesitation once a visit was requested. “Who’s going to say no to that,” asks the guitarist-singer. “We definitely wanted to come out here to see everybody.” He added, “Anytime you can make someone happy that’s away from home and bring any kind of joy to any rock and roll fans that are out here, away from their home, away from their country, it’s great to help out in any way we can.” Tremonti says he’s made it a point over the years to invite military personnel to their shows to meet and visit with them. He concluded, “I know they’re doing everything they can for us. I know they’re away from their families and friends, so it’s gotta be tough. So we respect the hell out of ‘em.” Watch Mark Tremonti’s Interview With American Forces Network [button href=”” title=”Next: Watch Tremonti’s ‘Wish You Well’ Video” align=”center”]

Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte Recreates Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Album Cover

Matthias Clamer, ESPN The Magazine If imitation is the ultimate sign of flattery, then Nirvana ‘s ‘Nevermind’ album cover has to be one of the most beloved images in pop culture history. The iconic artwork has been replicated many times over the years, and Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is the latest to pay tribute, recreating the image for ‘ESPN The Magazine’s new music issue.  The magazine has turned their focus to sports loving musicians for their latest issue, with Pearl Jam ‘s Jeff Ament recently sharing his basketball past in a piece that turned up prior to the issue’s release. Incidentally, the image of Lochte swimming with the almighty dollar in front of him seems apt as since his Olympic victories the commercial opportunities have opened up. He recently signed on to star in the reality series , ‘What Would Ryan Lochte Do?’ The ‘ESPN The Magazine’ music issue hit newsstands today (Feb. 8). See a full gallery of Ryan Lochte’s ‘Nevermind’ photo shoot here  and see a behind-the-scenes video below: Ryan Lochte ‘Nevermind’ Photo Shoot – Behind-the-Scenes Video [button href=”” title=”Next: Unique ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ Covers” align=”center”]
