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.


Dave Grohl plays the drums with his teeth
September 29th, 2021 under Foo Fighters, Howard Stern. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know that Dolly Parton created the music for her song 9 to 5 with her nails? It turns out that Dave Grohl does the same but with his teeth.

How does he do that? Yesterday, he gave Howard Stern a demonstration on the Shock Jock’s radio show.

Not only did the Foo Fighters singer show us how it’s done, but he also revealed that he is not the only band member of Nirvana who did it. Kurt Cobain also used that technique to keep on beat with the music.

How long has Grohl been doing this? Ever since he was a kid. It is so hard on his teeth that even his dentist noticed the deterioration of his teeth when he was just 11.

Even when the Rocker was a preteen, he was bad a$$!

Do any of you musicians do that too? I can’t wait for my drummer friends to wake up, so I can ask them if they use their teeth as an instrument. I have been using my nails as one ever since I found out about Miss Dolly. It is so much fun!
