Over the weekend (Dec. 2), several rockers descended upon Washington, D.C., to pay homage to one of the most influential rock bands of all time – the legendary Led Zeppelin. The tribute performances for the annual Kennedy Center Honors show would see the combined talents of Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz and Kid Rock all take the stage to play classics from Led Zeppelin and attempt to do them justice.
Rockers are getting into the giving spirit and generously donating their time to victims of October's devastating Superstorm Sandy. Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, as well as Bon Jovi, have been added to the lineup for the 12-12-12 concert, which will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund's efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Dave Grohl is heading back behind the drumkit for Queens of the Stone Age, and he says one of the things the experience provides is freedom from restrictions. The Foo Fighters leader told BBC Radio 1 (via NME) that he's really enjoying backing up old pal Josh Homme and that the musical chemistry is undeniable.
Being the frontman of a rock band can provide you with plenty of opportunities, including financial ones. Some rockers have benefitted more than others over the years, and Celebrity Net Worth has compiled a list of the richest rock singers, with Dave Grohl, James Hetfield, and Axl Rose among those doing well.
In the latest 'Muppets' movie, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl goes back to his Nirvana roots by manning the drums in a depressing bar band called 'The Moopets.' With Fozzie Bear fronting the fake Muppet band, Dave Grohl plays the part of 'Animool,' the fake version of Muppet drummer Animal.
The Foo Fighters may be on an indefinite hiatus, but with Dave Grohl’s upcoming documentary on the historic Sound City recording studio on the horizon, there are still some new Foo Fighters collaborations to look forward to. One of those songs includes a tune penned with Rick Springfield, who recorded his 1981 disc ‘Working Class Dog’ at the legendary studio.
