Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has worked with some of rock music's most respected and admired musicians. From drumming for Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age, working with Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister in Probot, Slash, Trent Reznor and even Tony Iommi. Now, the musical powerhouse wants to introduce Taylor Greenwood to the world as his new protege.
As we reported recently, Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl was set to be honored by his birth city, Warren, Ohio, with some record breaking drumsticks. On Saturday (July 7), the 900-pound monster drumsticks made out of poplar logs were unveiled during a ceremony, and although Grohl couldn’t make the festivities in person, he was there in spirit.
Dave Grohl continues to keep pretty tightlipped about all things surrounding the documentary he’s working on about the legendary Sound City recording studio and companion soundtrack, but lucky for us, producer Butch Vig is talking. And a new tidbit that Vig has revealed is that Grohl jammed with 'Jessie's Girl' hit-maker Rick Springfield as part of the project.
Record producer and Garbage drummer extraordinaire Butch Vig has a longstanding relationship with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl that dates back to the Nirvana days when Vig produced their game-changing ‘Nevermind.' Given their history, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that they’ve teamed up again, although it does breed an air of excitement. Add in former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic to the mix and things take a turn for the euphoric.
