    dave grohl plays Band on the Run

    The Beatles and Foo Fighters are my two all time favorite bands and while this is a Wings song and John is my favorite Beatle, it still rocks. Dave is playing with Pauls band and i love it. thought i'd share.

    I didn't see this performance on the night of the award. But, a while back, in a different performance, Grohl played drums - with Paul - on "I Saw Her Standing There", and the look on his face and the enthusiasm, you could tell he was diggin it.

    Lennon was also my favorite - especially in the early days, before he dove off the deep end. 'A Hard Day's Night' is his album, and I think it is the greatest pop-rock album. At the time it came out, nobody on the planet was making music like that.

    Best Dave Grohl cover is this:

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: dave grohl plays Band on the Run

    I typically like his stuff but I didn't really dig his Band on the Run rendition.

    Tiny Dancer was pretty good and I agree with his "Almost Famous" comments. Too funny.

    Dave Grohl is a Rock God. Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Pro-Bot, Played Drums for both Queens of the Stonage Albums, played Drums for the Tenacious D self titled CD AND the new songs for their Pick of Destiny Sound track.

    I would LOVE to meet him. One of the most talented musicians of the last 25 years no doubt!

    Re: dave grohl plays Band on the Run

    Grohl is definitely a rock god. An underrated musician over the past few years, but I would argue without blinking that his body of work exceeds his former band mate in terms of quality/prowess (although clearly less influential).

    Well to be fair, Grohl's career has lasted a little longer than his bandmate.

    And who's fault is that?

    What makes Grohl so exceptional is his across the board talent. Not only is he a great songwriter/vocalist, he's a HELL of a good drummer. Just listen to the work he did for QOTSA. His drumming is a big reason why Songs for the Deaf is my favorite QOTSA album. Not to mention he's been involved in such a wide variety of music. Compare "Virginia Moon" by the Foos to Probot. Pretty wild difference.
