Rush were the runaway stars at the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last night. And one of the show's highlights found the trio onstage with two members of the Foo Fighters, who performed the final minute of '2112''s classic 'Overture' with the newly inducted band. Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins even dressed in vintage Rush outfits -- Grohl as Alex Lifeson and Hawkins as Neil Peart -- complete with wigs.
Stevie Nicks leads Dave Grohl and the Sound City Players on 'You Can't Fix This,' a song inspired by the death of the Fleetwood Mac singer's godson. The group recently performed a slower, bluesier version of the track from the 'Sound City' soundtrack on 'The Late Show with David Letterman.' It's best experienced live.
As we've been reading about the concerts by the Sound City Players, the supergroup assembled by Dave Grohl to help promote 'Sound City,' his movie about the Los Angeles studio, we've become intrigued by a new song he co-wrote with Stevie Nicks, 'You Can't Fix This.' Last night, the two performed the song on CBS' 'The Late Show with David Letterman.'
Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Nirvana fame assembled an all-star cast of musicians for his new documentary 'Sound City,' and for the lucky fans in select cities, he has been taking the show on the road with him. Following performances in Park City, Utah, and Los Angeles, the Sound City Players hit New York City for a one-night stand last night (Feb. 13) at Hammerstein Ballroom.
Dave Grohl can now add Elton John to his growing list of famous collaborators. The classic rocker has joined Queens of the Stone Age, with whom Grohl is drumming while Foo Fighters are on hiatus, to record a song on their upcoming album. During an interview the two indicated that the style is very different from what fans have come to expect from the famous piano player.
Foo Fighters bandmates Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April, during a ceremony in Los Angeles, Calif. A press release at RockHall.com also revealed who will induct Albert King, Randy Newman and Donna Summer, but didn't mention what artist will do the honors for Heart or Public Enemy.
More sounds from the upcoming 'Sound City Reel to Reel' album have been released. Rocker and film director Dave Grohl has teamed with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and bassist Scott Reeder to create 'From Can to Can't,' a soaring rock ballad that will transcend one back to 2002 when everything on the radio was thick with heartache power chords and thin on melody.
