Late last week, when Foo Fighters told the universe about frontman Dave Grohl's "surprise" birthday show scheduled for this past Saturday at the Forum in LA, we knew we'd some interesting clips to share with you this morning. We were correct!
Foo Fighters have premiered two more songs from their ever-more-interesting-sounding new album, Sonic Highways. Below, you can explore "What Did I Do?/God As My Witness," which they recorded during their visit to Austin. Below that, you'll find "Outside," which was recorded at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California. It features the Eagles' Joe Walsh on guitar.
As those of you with calendars know, Friday was Halloween. To celebrate the occasion, Foo Fighters — during their Friday-night show at the Ryman in Nashville — dressed up as Kiss, invited Zac Brown on stage and performed Black Sabbath's "War Pigs."
Foo Fighters have premiered a new song, "Congregation," a raucous tune with a healthy dose of electric 12-string guitar. You can hear it below. "Congregation," which features Zac Brown, was recorded at Brown's Southern Ground Studios in Nashville.
Last night, Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen took the stage with Foo Fighters on Late Show With David Letterman to perform Cheap Trick's 1978 tune "Stiff Competition." Dave Grohl played drums while Taylor Hawkins did his best Robin Zander imitation, right down to the white suit.
Dave Grohl & Co., also known as Foo Fighters, have premiered "Something from Nothing," the first song from their new album, Sonic Highways. Sonic Highways, which will be released worldwide November 10, was recorded in eight studios in eight different American cities. It will be previewed in a new HBO documentary series, directed by Grohl, called Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways that will premiere tomorrow night, October 17.
