Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters played house band for Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty and Rick Springfield at a sold-out concert in New York City.

Nicks, Fogerty and Springfield performed at the Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California, in the late 1960s through the early '90s.

They are the subjects of Grohl's just-released directorial debut, the documentary "Sound City."

Grohl kicked things off at the gig with Alain Johannes. The crowd at the Hammerstein Ballroom then roared as Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine took the stage.

Grohl played guitar and drums, and he sang background during the 25-minute sets.
