Subscribe to on

Glowing reports have been filtering back from fans lucky enough to catch one of the handful of intimate shows Dave Grohl‘s Sound City Players have put on in recent weeks, but last night, one permutation of the all-star outfit finally performed for the whole world to see. The Players hit the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ stage with Stevie Nicks to perform the tune ‘You Can’t Fix This,’ which appears on ‘Real to Reel,’ the forthcoming soundtrack to Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ documentary.

Afterward, Grohl sat down with Letterman for a chat about the movie, which tells the story of the famed Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, Calif. Grohl recalled his first experience with Nirvana at the studio, where the band recorded ‘Nevermind.’

“We walked in, and it was a dump; it looked like a burnt-out Chi-Chi’s,” Grohl tells Letterman. “It was a terrible place. But if you put the drums in this spot in the big room and hit ‘record,’ it sounded like ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.'” Watch the interview clip below.
