L.A.'s Palladium was filled to the brim with a veritable who's who of rock-n-roll last night in celebration of Foo Fighter Dave Grohl's documentary about the iconic Sound City Studios based in Van Nuys, CA. Grohl rounded up a "super group" of folks who recorded there including members of Fleetwood Mac, John Fogerty, Rage Against the Machine, Fear, Cheap Trick and Nirvana to put on a once-in-a-lifetime concert.
Our girl Stevie closed out the night with classic Fleetwood Mac tracks like "Landslide" and "Dreams". We like to think of it as a little warm-up for the Mac's upcoming tour.
Ready yourself for their tour with the 35th anniversary editions of RUMOURS.

The Independent called Backbeat: “A dynamic blast evoking the Beatles’ raw musical potential” while the Evening Standard hailed the musical as a “back-story to cherish” and the Sunday Express raved: “edgy and cool.”
After storming stages in London, Backbeat, the hit play with music about the Beatles’ Hamburg years, is now winning over audiences with its first U.S. performances this month at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. (The production continues through March 1, 2013.) Directed by five-time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux, the production follows five rowdy working class lads from the docks of Liverpool – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe – to the raucous clubs of West Germany’s seedy red-light district. Backbeat is produced by Karl Sydow in association with The Glasgow Citizens Theatre and adapted for the stage by Iain Softley & Stephen Jeffreys, based on the Universal Pictures film.
