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 take his Rock &More »

Ghost – “I’m A Marionette” (Abba Cover) (Feat. Dave Grohl)

A few months ago, we learned the ridiculously badass news that Dave Grohl would, once again, play drums on a forthcoming Queens Of The Stone Age album. And Grohl has apparently found a fun way to shake off any drum rust he might be feeling: By linking up with the absurdly theatrical Swedish doom metal… More »

Watch Dave Grohl’s Sound City Live Concert In Park City

Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players will be one of early 2013’s more unavoidable events, and the band kicked off their ubiquity Friday night in Park City, Utah, where they made their live debut (coinciding with the premiere of Grohl’s new Sound City documentary at the Sundance Film Festival). The show went for three-plus hours and… More »

Hear Dave Grohl On Marc Maron’s WTF

Even if you’ve never enjoyed more than a handful of Foo Fighters songs, you have to concede that Dave Grohl has had a pretty incredible and unprecedented career, and that he’d be a fun person to hang out with for an hour or so. That means he’s a pretty ideal person to sit for a… More »

McCartney & Nirvana Members – “Cut Me Some Slack” Studio Version & SNL Performance

In one of those bizarre and unforseeable titans-clashing musical events, Paul McCartney linked up with the surviving members of Nirvana, reunited for the occasion, to play a few songs at last week’s 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief show. Among those songs was a hearteningly ass-whomping new one called “Cut Me Some Slack,” which will show u… More »

Watch Nirvana & Paul McCartney Debut “Cut Me Some Slack” At 12-12-12: The Concert For Sandy Relief

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. It should go without saying that my criticism/cynicism here is strictly musical and cultural: Whatever fresh hell occurred last night was very much in the… More »

Reunited Nirvana To Perform With Paul McCartney Tonight

Among the many types of rock-band reunions, there are a few notable ones: The reunions we all wanted that end up being worthy of our interest (Dinosaur Jr., Mission Of Burma); the reunions we all wanted that end up being kind of a bummer (Jesus & Mary Chain, Pavement IMO), the reunions we’ve been clamoring… More »

Frances Bean Issues Statement Re: Mom’s Twitter Rant

Earlier this week, Courtney Love lobbied some hateful tweets against Dave Grohl, accusing him of trying to seduce Frances Bean Cobain and having a “romney rape thing about him.” She also claimed Grohl hired a “submissive drummer” who looked like Kurt, named his daughter after a Hole song, and greedily licensed Nirvana music to TheMore »

Courtney Love Alleges Dave Grohl Seduced Frances Bean, Tweets A Lot About It

As is well-established at this point, shit is bound to go down on Courtney Love’s Twitter. But, her account (which is set to private) veered into creepy territory as she lobbed accusations at Dave Grohl, who was allegedly handsy with his former bandmate’s daughter recently. The tirade also questions the nature of Foo Fighters drummer… More »

Tenacious D – “To Be The Best” Video

Novelty-metal all-stars Tenacious D have been out of the game, as a duo anyway, since their 2006 movie The Pick Of Destiny failed brutally. They’re back with a new album now, and credit them for taking on that movie’s miserable performance in this, the first video from new LP Rize Of The Fenix. It’s probably… More »

Dave Grohl Clarifies Grammy Speech

Dave Grohl said some stuff during his Grammy acceptance speech that came across as anti-digital, anti-technology, anti-Skrillex that he thought he should clarify (of course, the whole juxtaposition of his “long live the rock!” speech at odds with his band’s performance with Deadmau5 later in the broadcast. The Grammys, ladies and gents!). Here’s Dave, via… More »

Ryan Adams Covers Ratt Acoustic

Ryan Adams has often been photographed wearing Ratt T-shirts, and as it turns out, he wasn’t just being cute with it. On a recent visit to NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, Adams broke out a gorgeous solo-acoustic cover of the glam-metal band’s 1984 nugget “Round And Round” — not a faithful cover by any means, but… More »

Dave Grohl Says Thanks

Bob Mould Tribute @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA 11/21/2011

If Hüsker Dü or Sugar were before your time, do yourself a favor and dig up their old catalogs. Both venerable bands were fronted by Bob Mould, and an all-star assortment of music luminaries assembled to celebrate the music and legacy of Mould’s vast catalog at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Watch Foo Fighters’ Westboro Baptist Church Counter-Protest

On August 30, the Westboro Baptist Church, one of the major sources of embarrassment for a native Kansan such as myself (we have the Koch brothers too! Represent!), picketed the Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City, MO for whatever backwards, nebulous, par-for-the-course reason they usually picket stuff. Well, maybe it has something to do with… More »

Wavves – “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl”

Churlish punk pop posterboys Wavves dropped a new pre-VMAs single, “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl” at virtually the same time as they were complaining about the VMAs themselves. It’s a strong, focused, hook-laden effort (despite the fact that these dudes have been all over the map lately) and our first listen to their forthcoming LifeMore »

Foo Fighters – “Rope” Video

There was a noteworthy amount of discussion around “Rope,” the first single from the forthcoming Wasting Light, especially given (or maybe because of) how textbook Foo that self-doubting post-grunge radio rock hook felt. Here’s that song’s video, featuring Pat Smear because the album does as well, with the black-clad band inside a Battles “Atlas”-reminiscent cube,… More »
