WATCH: Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players – “Hanging Tree”

Dave Grohl does work. Best known as the guitarist and singer for the Foo Fighters, the drummer for Nirvana, or the drummer for Queens of the Stone Age, in the video you are about to see, he is the vocalist and bassist for his Sound City Players project. The song, which casual fans will accuse of being a Queens of the Stone Age cover, is actually a song written by Alain Johannes and performed by Josh and his Hommes (…get it?) in Desert Sessions from Volume 7. (Hardcore fans will also know that “You May Think I Ain’t Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire” is also originally from the Desert Sessions.) In both the Desert Sessions and the Queens of the Stone Age versions, Mark Lanegan is the lead singer. I long for Mark to rejoin QotSA, but that’s a different story.

The song was covered by Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18. I doubt the group will do a full tour (or last beyond February, for that matter), but it’s cool to see some decent footage surface of one of their shows.
