Both Foo Fighters and Guns N' Roses paid tribute to late AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young during their respective concerts Saturday.
Acclaimed PBS docu-series Landmarks Live In Concert, which features global superstars performing at iconic locations around the world, is winning praise for its fun, humorous segments hosted by multi-Grammy winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Grohl reveals to Smith that the group had a very special guest star play drums on one of their songs — namely, none other than the legendary Paul McCartney! The two discuss what it was like to work with the Beatle, and what his technique brought to the song.
When a rock star invites “all his friends” to a wild all-day party, at least one of the guests is going to be a troublemaker. And that role Saturday was amusingly filled by ex-Oasis mouthpiece Liam Gallagher.
During a day with Rolling Stone, Dave Grohl reveals how everyone from Justin Timberlake to Paul McCartney ended up on the Foo Fighters' new LP.
Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl enlists his daughters to star in the band's "The Sky is a Neighborhood" video, directed by Grohl himself.
Foo Fighters "rickrolled" Tokyo's Summer Sonic fest Sunday by having Rick Astley join the band on a grungy version of his "Never Gonna Give You Up."
Back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, Virginia Hanlon Grohl watched as her son David — as she calls him — developed a love for music but struggled in school. From Cradle to Stage offers plenty of insight into Virginia’s superstar son’s life, beginning with the foreword penned by Dave Grohl himself.
As if we needed another reason to love Dave Grohl: the Foo Fighters frontman has come to the aid of a British teenage heavy metal band. UK quartet Black Leaves of Envy was on the verge of getting banned from practicing in their home garage in Cornwall. That’s no more than the audio level of a dishwasher – something pointed out by Grohl, who posted a letter to the Cornwall Council on the Foo Fighters website.

Moved to tears by a viral video of 1,000 fans singing a Foo Fighters song in an Italian park to try to get the band to play in their town, band leader Dave Grohl has now said yes. Their video of “Learn to Fly”, released on YouTube in July, has been viewed almost 26 million times. At the time, Grohl promised the band would come to the small northern city of Cesena, but the concert only became official this week. “It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful experiences of my entire life … Ci vediamo presto, Cesena! (We’ll see you soon, Cesena!)” Grohl said. Cesena has a population of fewer than 100,000 and is not normally part of the circuit for international rock concerts.
It was a fitting tribute to the Love Ride’s grand finale that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl fashioned his now-famous throne after a giant Harley Davidson. The Foo Fighters headlined the day-long charitable motorcycle ride and concert, winding down their extensive US tour at Castaic Lake, Calif. and bringing the 32nd and final Love Ride to an epic close. “We modified it for the Love Ride so we did it right.” Earlier in the day, thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts gathered at the Harley Davidson dealer in Glendale, Calif. and rode 50 miles north to Castaic Lake, where the Foo Fighters and Social Distortion performed for throngs of denim-and-leather-clad bikers and other music fans who drove in on more traditional four-wheeled vehicles to check out the action. Thankfully, the Foo Fighters’ good-natured attitude and can-do spirit kept the thirsty throngs at bay.
The Foo Fighters were forced to cancel the rest of their European tour after Dave Grohl fell and broke his leg onstage in Sweden last week. The band announced the news on their website Tuesday (June 16), following Grohl’s surgery on Monday. “Due to injuries sustained in Dave Grohl’s fall from the stage during Foo Fighters’ June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden, doctors have required the cancellation of the remainder of the band’s dates in the UK and Europe,” a statement reads.
He doesn’t have two legs to stand on, but that apparently won’t be enough to stop Dave Grohl from bringing the fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl gave his orthopedic surgeon the biggest thank you imaginable – a solo on stage with the rock group.
In the greatest invitation any musician has ever received, ONE THOUSAND musicians banded together in Italy to perform Foo Fighters’ "Learn To Fly" in an attempt to convince Dave Grohl and company to fly over to their country and play a show. The Foo Fighters have famously been touring with a new set-up that includes a throne of guitars Dave drew while high on painkillers following that awful fall off stage that caused the injury earlier this summer. On the video’s Rocking 1000 website, the people explain “The Foo Fighters are not in Romagna since 1997, it’s time to get them back, but we need a crazy idea. We have to organize something that kicks ass worldwide and can be seen by Dave Grohl: We will ask one thousand rockers to play one of their songs, all together and at the same time.” After a year of work, that’s exactly what they did with the event’s creator Fabio Zaffagnini pleading “One thousand rockers that came from all over the nation at their own expense, and they just did one song — your song.
