Not many occasions call for the Hollywood and Highland block to be closed off, but Jimmy's Kimmel's special musical guests made it happen tonight, March 5. The Sound City Players, a group of musicians Dave Grohl rallied up who recorded at a now defunct studio he made a documentary about, rocked thousands of fans on the famous Boulevard tonight, right in front of the building that "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is recorded.
Usually when there is a musical guest performing outside Kimmel's studio, the bands and fans are at the parking lot behind the theater. This very special concert went way past just the usual one or two songs. Jimmy introduced the Foo Fighters and John Fogerty from the roof.
Fogerty and the Foo Fighters played four songs together, including "Fortunate Son" and "Proud Mary". After the Creedence Clearwater Revival vocalist left the satge, Rick Springfield performed a few songs. The next frontman was Lee Ving of the punk band Fear, because what logically follows the song, "Jessie's Girl" better than music that caused many in the audience to mosh? The final guests were Rick Neilsen of Cheap Trick and Grohl's bandmate from that another band (Nirvana), Krist Novoselic.
