The “weirdly folky backing harmonies…” aren’t so weird if you remember Greg Graffin’s very folky and very good solo album, American Lesion.
Dave – “Hey, You wanna go sing harmonies on our new album?”
Shouldn’t you say the 10th time Dave Grohl has “appeared” on the show. He hasn’t drummed for the Foo Fighters on the show. amirite?
