Foo Fighter’s horror movie Studio 666 looks killer
January 11th, 2022 under Foo Fighters. [ Comments: none ]

The Foo Fighters are willing to try new things, like record a Bee Gees tribute album. Next month they will be starring in a horror movie called Studio 666.

We have been hearing about it for a while. We have seen some photos. And now we are getting to witness Dave Grohl go from drummer to murderer, all thanks to the possessed house they are recording in, in the trailer.

Too bad it is coming out on February 25th instead of February 14th because I want to make it my Valentine.

I grew up with Horror. I am so over modern-day over CGIed Horror. I also am not a fan of haunted house films. Yet, having said that, it is Everclear; I cannot wait for this one. It is a throwback to the good old days of the genre. The days before Grohl was in a little band called Nirvana. So, in other words, the concept is as ancient as the spirits in the feature, and I am all for it!

Rock on! Or should I say, kill on!

Dave Grohl wants to rock and roll all nite
December 6th, 2021 under Foo Fighters, KISS. [ Comments: none ]

Today is the last day of Chanukah, so that means no more Hanukkah Sessions from Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin.

Does that mean it is over forever? The drummer wrote, “Greg and I would like to thank all of the people that helped ramp up the Hanukkah Sessions this year. It’s gonna be tough to beat! (But we will. Oh, we will…)”

So mark your calendars because they will be back doing the music of Jewish performers starting on December 18, 2022.

Until that date, we can Rock and Roll Nite and party every day with their version of the KISS song.

Dave Grohl is a Big Shot
December 3rd, 2021 under Billy Joel, Foo Fighters. [ Comments: 3 ]

It is the sixth night of Chanukah, so that means it is time for Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin to release their take on another song by a Jewish artist. Tonight, they gave us something from The Piano Man.

Grohl wrote, “While he claims a secular Long Island upbringing (and has songs full of Catholic and Italian imagery), Billy Joel remains one of the great Jews of musical scripture—here’s his ultimate ode to a true Macher: ‘Big Shot!'”

After watching this performance, I hope that the Foo Fighters add kazoos to their act!

Dave Grohl goes all Barry Manilow
November 30th, 2021 under Foo Fighters. [ Comments: none ]

It is the third night of The Hanukkah Sessions, and tonight Dave Grohl went to the Copacabana! As in the place that a certain singer made famous. Or as the Foo Fighters’ singer put it, “Barry Pincus – not only one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th (or any) century, but a mega-mensch to boot!

“So, like a good neighbor, you deserve a break today. So grab a bucket of chicken and let’s get stuck on…BARRY MANILOW’S “Copacabana”!”

I have always wondered what it would be like to go to a Bar Mitzvah in Minnesota. Now, we know. And I want to be invited to one where Grohl and Grey Kurstin are the Mitzvah Men. Maybe that is what they can call their cover band of Jewish artists’ songs. Hopefully, they will do Helen Reddy’s I Am Woman before the holiday ends! Oy!

Nothing says Chanukah like Dave Grohl singing Lisa Loeb’s Stay in a dress!
November 28th, 2021 under Foo Fighters. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight is the first night of Chanukah! Happy Chanukah to all the Jews out there.

However, there is one goy that I should add to the list, and that is Dave Grohl. The singer brought back The Hannukkah Sessions with his Foo Fighters bandmate and member of the tribe Greg Kurstin.

They are starting off the Festival Lights by lighting up Lisa Loeb’s Stay. And when I say their version is lit like the shamash candle on the menorah.

Here is what Grohl said about choosing Stay for the first night, “Let’s kick it this year’s Hanukkah sessions with one of Dallas, Texas’s favorite Jewish daughters. So put on your coffee shop spectacles and your Betsey Johnson dress and HAVA listen to this…’Stay’ by @lisaloeb.”

Aren’t you happy that Chanukah is eight days long? Why? That is because we get seven more of these! I can’t wait to hear what they do next! Here is to hoping we get something from Culture Club or Josh Groban.

BTW There has to be a Rabbi out there somewhere that will make Grohl an honorary Jew! He’s earned it.
