Paul McCartney

We all know Dave Grohl made the move from behind the drum kit (in Nirvana) to front of stage (in Foo Fighters). Which makes the new Paul McCartney-Foo Fighters news all the more interesting.

It’s recently been revealed that among the many guests Grohl lined up for the new Foo Fighters album Concrete And Gold, the former Beatles and all-round music legend Paul McCartney will make an appearance as well – as a drummer. Speaking to ET Canada, Grohl said, “Paul McCartney plays drums on one of our songs. He’s a pal. We’ve known him for a long time. He’s great. He’s the most wonderful person in the world. He’s a great guy.”

Another band member (possibly drummer Taylor Hawkins) also added, “He hadn’t even heard of the song. He comes in and Dave picked up an acoustic and showed him real quick. He sat on his special drum set that his tech set up for him. I sat there with a drumstick conducting. He did two takes.”

So far the Concrete And Gold guests who have been revealed are Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, the Bird and Bee’s Inara George, sax player Dave Koz and the Kills’ Alison Mosshart, and producer Greg Kurstin. Grohl still hasn’t revealed the name of the guest he referred to as “the biggest pop star in the world,” though he’s confirmed that it’s not Adele or Taylor Swift.

Concrete And Gold releases on September 15, 2017. Go here for more details.
