As you may or may not be aware, Dave Grohl has produced a new EP with the Zac Brown Band and they are calling it The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1. I believe it gets released on iTunes on Dec 10th. Watch the video and see Dave's response to the Zac Brown Band naming their EP after him.
Just in case you missed it, here is the video of Dave Grohl playing with the Zac Brown Band on the Country Music Awards. It's pretty darn good.
Dave Grohl has teamed up with various friends and business partners in creating a couple of new videos that have popped up on the wide world of the internet web. Check them out below:
He even takes a guitar solo as Keith Richards smiles on...
Dave Grohl and the Sound City Players played a fast and furious rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's Fortunate Son for the Jimmy Kimmel show. Check the video here. Makes me want to cover a CCR song at our next gig!
Dave Grohl is now a "Documentarian" as Stephen Colbert calls him. He also had some words of wisdom for us all when Colbert asked him how he ended up directing a movie:
"The way I look at it is...I never took lessons to learn how to play the drums. And I never took lessons to learn how to play guitar, I just sort of figured it out. And I think that if you're passionate about something and you're driven and focused, that you can pretty much do anything that you want to do in life."
"Nobody taught me how to yell at people," agreed Colbert.
I think Dave's got a second career as motivational speaker if he wanted it.
Foo Fighters start at the 7:06 mark, although it's not worth missing Jack Black's opening remarks cracking up David Letterman, who got the honor of sitting at the side of Jimmy Page.
I'm not sure what Michelle Obama is laughing at when Foo Fighters come out. Perhaps she just got done saying, "The band is called WHAT?! Ha ha ha ha!" Or else I like to think she is thinking, "That drummer looks just like Animal from the Muppets, ha ha ha ha!" Or perhaps Barack just said something hilarious.
But they do a great job reprising Rock 'n Roll like they did at their Wembly Stadium concert, with Dave Grohl on drums and Taylor Hawkins playing decent Robert Plant. Stephen Colbert was the first to give them the well deserved standing ovation. When did Foo Fighter become such a great band?
If you've got the 22 minutes, it's well worth watching the whole thing. Lenny Kravitz is a great entertainer singing Whole Lotta Love and Heart brings the house down with Stairway to Heaven, backed by a full gospel choir. It even brought tears to Robert Plant's eyes. Pure fun.
