Watch Dave Grohl, John Fogerty, & Rick Springfield Play Kimmel

The producers of Jimmy Kimmel Live must have deemed this all-star trio too big for an in-studio stage.

Soundgarden – “By Crooked Steps” Video

You know who's been quiet -- a little too quiet -- lately? Dave Grohl, man. I swear I went all weekend without news of Grohl doing Maron, playing drums for some random band or another, schmoozing the festival circuit in support of the documentary film he directed, or making plans to… More »

So last night the unthinkable happened: Paulvana, Nirmacca, Nicartney -- whatever they're calling themselves (Abomination is taken) -- performed at the 12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief at Madison Square Garden.
