FUSE TV - Dave Grohl Packs Multiple Shows Into Epic Sound City Players SXSW Set

"It's my life's greatest gift to be able to call up these people who I consider my heroes and have them jam with me," said Sound City director Dave Grohl towards the end of Thursday night's South by Southwest set at Stubb's. "I'm the luckiest man in the world."

What could come off as false pride for most preening rock stars was genuine admiration tonight, as Grohl, who earlier that day delivered the music festival's keynote speech, introduced the heroes of his widely acclaimed documentary on Sound City Studios.

Tonight's show felt like a quasi-sequel to Probot, Grohl's 2004 heavy metal side project featuring vocals by Grohl's biggest metal influences (like Motorhead's Lemmy). Rather than the standard one-and-done special guest appearances, the three hour and 20 minute set was more a revue, with each guest getting 30 minutes to combine their most famous songs with new tracks recorded with Grohl for the film's soundtrack.
