Foo Fighters Release Official Band Announcement Video About Their (Non-) Breakup

posted by Oscar March 2, 2016

The Foo Fighters have finally unveiled that official band announcement they had teased last night, and the big reveal really was worth the wait!

So after that Oscars appearance over the weekend, rumors started circling that the band would be breaking up due to supposed indifferences between Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins, and that Dave would be going solo. So, the group released an official band announcement via a video on YouTube which addresses all of the rumors… The Foos proved they’re some of the biggest trollmasters ever as the clip shows Grohl as a diva, while the rest of the guys search for new lead singers and ultimately give Nick Lachey a try-out as they play “Everlong.” What a stroke of genius! See the video above.

And just in case you didn’t get the message (or didn’t want to wait until the end, just look at the image below with the final announcement.

posted by Oscar February 29, 2016

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was present at last night’s Oscars, where he hit the stage play a cover of The Beatles’ “Blackbird” during the “In Memoriam” portion of the award show.

The performance was gorgeous and it was a fitting way to pay our respects to some of the big stars we lost over the last year like David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and Leonard Nimoy. Check out the tribute above.

Video: Dave Grohl Plus Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera Members Cover Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades”

posted by Oscar January 23, 2016

Over the last month we’ve lost way too many of our Rock idols, among which was Motörhead leader Lemmy Kilmister. While it’s sad to know the world lost one awesome musician, at the very least we get to see tribute covers to honor his legacy.

One such cover came last night at Friday night’s Dimebash, the annual celebration of late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, where Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl put together a special one-off supergroup made up of Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, Pantera singer Phil Anselmo, and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. The supergroup paid their respects to the late Lemmy by covering his band’s signature song, “Ace Of Spades.” On top of all that, Grohl rocked out wearing an ABBA shirt! No fucks, son!

So killer! Jam out above.

The Muppets have always had a bit of an edgy side with their fine taste in Rock & Roll, and they further prove that with their latest collab: the one and only Dave Grohl.

Grohl appeared on the latest episode of ABC’s primetime Muppets reboot, in which we see the Foo Fighters leader play one of his band’s signature songs “Learn To Fly” with Miss Piggy’s late-nigh show house band. Along with that, we finally saw the epic drum battle between Grohl and all-around musical savage Animal. Who won? Just check it out above.

Video: Dave Grohl Breaks Leg After Falling Off Stage, Comes Back To Finish The Concert

posted by Oscar June 12, 2015

Dave Grohl is a Rock God! During a Foo Fighters show in Gothenburg, Sweden, Dave Grohl took a bad fall off stage and wound up breaking his leg while performing “Monkey Wrench” (cue “wrench in plans” joke here). While Grohl was getting checked out the band played some covers with drummer Taylor Hawkins singing lead.

Soon afterwards, the Foos lead singer not only returned to the stage, but he and the band actually go off to finish the concert. Super Dave addressed the audience saying “Hey, ladies and gentlemen. I love you, but I think I just broke my leg. I really broke my leg,” while sitting with his leg wrapped. Grohl kicked the show back into gear saying “I may not be able to walk or run but I can still play guitar and scream.”

See a clip of Grohl talking about breaking his leg above, and see more concert footage with him performing with a broken leg below. Continue Reading

Video: Dave Grohl’s Birthday Concert Featured All-Star Guests

posted by Oscar January 11, 2015

A couple of days ago we talked about the first show Foo Fighters would be playing in 2015 was set to go down Saturday, January 10 at LA’s The Forum with profits going to charity. Given the fact that this concert was also doubling as lead singer Dave Grohl’s birthday show, we could’ve expected some cool guests to join him and the band onstage to Rock out some tunes.

It turns out Grohl knows some of the coolest stars on the planet! Some of the acts that would perform with the Foos throughout the night included Tenacious D and Slash lending a hand on a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” (above), Alice Cooper played frontman to perform his own hits “School’s Out” and “I’m Eighteen” (below) and David Lee Roth helped perform Van Halen’s “Panama” and “Ain’t Talking Bout Love.” And that’s only a glimpse at all that went down! My favorite by far was Paul Stanley’s appearance for “Detroit Rock City” and “Do You Love Me.”

I’m a Chicago guy through and through but for this particular night, I would’ve loved being in the “city of angels” if it meant having a shot a being at this specific show. Continue Reading
