    Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters recently sat down with Rolling Stone, he mentions that Justin Timberlake sings on the band’s upcoming album:


    Then there was the day Justin Timberlake dropped by. He listened to what the Foos were doing and liked what he heard, and pretty soon he and Grohl were hanging out regularly. “We’d drink whiskey in the parking lot,” Grohl says. “He was really, really cool. Then the night before his last day, he says, ‘Can I sing on your record? I don’t want to push it, but – I just want to be able to tell my friends.’ ” So the band had him add some “la la la’s” to one track. “He nailed it,” Grohl says. “I’m telling you – the guy’s going somewhere.”

    "I'm telling you - the guy's going somewhere." I don't know, maybe he should be on SNL...... Save that sinking ship.

    A Dave Grohl SNL episode would be incredible but outside of the rock world, do people know who he is?

    Yeah. Grohl is the mainstreams sole rock connection.

    Got it. I thought it would be like Chester Bennington when everything went down. People didn't know his name but they knew Linkin Park.

    I think the post (and probably the quote, too) was a joke about how JT is already huge.

    DG is such a solid dude. Had me laughing out loud at that line. Totally my kind of person.

    No I got the joke. I'm talking about if Dave Grohl is known outside of the rock world. Did you mean to quote me?

    yeah, I think the SNL part was in reference to JT, not Grohl.

    This whole thing is a really good read. I love interviews in this style, where the writer just hangs out with them for a day or two

    Love when pop (or any other genre) artists embrace rock artists.

    Saw a video of Dr.Dre singing along to Nirvana's 'Stay Away' the other day. That was dope.
