Legendary hardcore punk group Corrosion of Conformity are going to have Lamb of God's Randall Blythe on the mic for a new project, which also involves coolest man in rock, Dave Grohl. Prepare yourself. (more…)
I recently got to watch the Sound City documentary, and it's a pretty great film, if you're a music buff. My favorite portion of the doc is the last act, where it's basically Grohl inviting all these people to jam with him for what would become the Sound City soundtrack, Real to Reel.
The one performance that absolutely stands out is the one by Grohl with Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor on the keys and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on the bass. They create magic together: (more…)
Elton John is no stranger to hard rock. He made an appearance on an Alice In Chains track on their comeback album, Black Gives Way To Blue (listen here), and now he's going to do it again with Queens of the Stone Age. (more…)

This past weekend at the Sundance Festival, the documentary made it's premiere and was followed by a huge concert of the Sound City Players which featured Grohl and some of his collaborators on the project including: (more…)
I have two bits of Ghost information to pass along to you to kick off the week. First off, we've already mentioned that as a B-side to their "Secular Haze" single, Ghost recording a cover of Abba's "I’m A Marionette" with the mighty Dave Grohl. Audio of that cover has now surfaced on YouTube: (more…)
Damn it, Dave Grohl, when do you sleep? The coolest motherfucker in music is currently promoting a new documentary, Sound City. He is also working with Queens of the Stone Age, drumming on their new album. On top of that, he somehow found time to contribute to a Ghost track. (more…)
Nearly one year ago, Corey Taylor hinted that he's going in the studio with Dave Grohl. We wondered if this meant a new Probot record was on the way, but we were wrong. They were working together on a track that will appear on the soundtrack to Grohl's highly anticipated upcoming documentary, Sound City.
Today, that song has surfaced, and it's a pretty great hard rock tune. (more…)
I just reactivated my cable box, after two years of strict online TV watching, and it was the perfect time to load up the DVR, for the 12/12/12 concert for Hurricane Sandy relief. There were two moments when my DVR when from fast forward x4 to play, and they were when Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder came out and helped Roger Waters perform the Pink Floyd classic "Comfortably Numb" and when Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl, Krist Novaselic and Pat Smear got up and performed a new track, "Cut Me Some Slack." Let's watch: (more…)
Coolest motherfucker in music, Dave Grohl is a busy man. He's working on new music with Queens of the Stone Age, he's getting ready to release a new kick-ass documentary on the famed recording studio, Sound City and to add even more to his plate…he just guest-hosted the E! network's late night talk show, Chelsea Lately. And, from the looks of these clips, it looks like he did a pretty solid job: (more…)
We've been posting about the new documentary that the coolest motherfucker in music, Dave Grohl is directing for a while. We've seen outtakes with Lars of Metallica and Corey from Slipknot discussing musical memories.
The film is set to premiere at the Sundance Festival next month, and we now have a better look at the documentary by way of a new two minute trailer. Take a look: (more…)
We've already established that Dave Grohl is the coolest dude in the music business, the dude will even top your beer off from stage. What a guy! He'll even fill in on drums if your drummer just quit.
And that's exactly what he will be doing on the new Queens of the Stone Age record. (more…)
Whether he's giving awesome Grammy speeches, making fresh pots, or stirring the pot, Dave Grohl has proved he is the coolest man in rock and roll. Here is a photo I found on Reddit of Grohl seeing a fan in the front row in need of more beer and helping him from the stage. Only Dave Grohl! What a nice guy. Here is what the person who posted the photo had to say: (more…)
DAVE GROHL Continues Being The Coolest Motherfucker In Music; Issues Statement Regarding His GRAMMY Speech
Look, Foo Fighters is not really a metal band, but time and time again, Dave Grohl continues to do really awesome fucking things, and say awesome things, that I can't help but write about him. The latest awesome thing was his now infamous speech at the Grammys this past Sunday, where he talking about learning to play an instrument, and his craft, (well, you can see it all above). Well today, Grohl issued a clarification, explaining he wasn't knocking electronic music, or any genre, he was just trying to tell everybody to keep it real: (more…)
A few weeks ago, Corey Taylor tweeted that he collaborated on a song with Dave Grohl. We jumped to conclusions and assumed that Grohl might just be working on a new Probot record, his heavy metal side project. But, it turns out that may not be the case. In the above video report, Taylor elaborates on teaming with Grohl (and Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen) and says the project revolves around a soundboard from the legendary Sound City Studios, where albums from Nirvana's Nevermind, Slipknot's Iowa and many others have been recorded. No word on what these collaborations will be used for, but I'm bummed it's most likely not a Probot record.
HUGE checks off the Bucket List today- did a song with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. Do the words 'holy shit' say enough about it?!?

I really enjoyed Dave Grohl's metal record, Probot, featuring a ton of awesome collaborations with A-list metal musicians like Lemmy and Max Cavalera. Could another Probot record be on the way? It looks to be that way. A few weeks ago, RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy let the cat out of the bag that he recorded something for Grohl, and today, Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor seems to have collaborated with Grohl as well. WHAT IS ALL OF THIS COLLABORATION FOR? (more…)
