This weekend, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, which took place April 18 at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, airs on HBO. The event is always a long affair — but it always has great moments. This year’s was better than most, and whittling it down to five was no easy feat. But if you’re looking to just watch selected highlights here’s a handful.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony – set to take place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on April 18 – has just added a lot of star power to its lineup, with Usher, director Spike Lee, Carole King, John Fogerty, Jackson Browne, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell and Harry Belafonte just added to the program.
Grohl’s joy was on full display at his keynote speech today (March 14) at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, marking quite a contract between the jaded music industry insiders who tend to cram the streets of Austin during SXSW. Here are our 10 favorite moments from Grohl’s speech.
Considering he gets to hang with his idols all day, Dave Grohl has a pretty cool life. Most recently, he’s been playing shows with his Sound City Players, featuring Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen and Rick Springfield.
The soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s documentary Sound City is now streaming in its entirety on NPR, one week ahead of its scheduled release date.
The list of musicians on the upcoming Queens of the Stone Age album is getting longer. During last night’s Chelsea Lately program, where Dave Grohl is filling in as guest host this week, Elton John revealed he had recorded with the group.
“This Neve board, this… is not my world. Engineers who spend hours on the kick drum (sound)? Please! I would rather have a blood transfusion!” This is part of a rather unlikely conversation between Barry Manilow — perennially the least-hip singer — and head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, who can seemingly get any rock legend on the phone.
Last night’s Super Bowl Halftime show – Beyonce’s tribute to Beyonce – blew up Twitter and possibly caused a power failure at New Orleans’ Superdome. But hey, at least no one flipped the bird or had a nip slip. So with another showbiz extravaganza behind us, we decided to look ahead to next year and offer our picks on who we’d like to see play the Super Bowl in 2014.
When John Fogerty delayed his new duets album back in August, it was supposedly to add “new original songs and notable surprises.” Now the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman has made good on his word, releasing the album’s new (star-studded) tracklist. Titled Wrote A Song For Everyone, the album will be released May 28 on Vanguard Records.
Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players blew the roof off of Park City Live in Utah earlier this month at the Sundance Film Festival (January 18), and they will rock the Hollywood Palladium after the film’s L.A. premiere later this week. As of now, that is the only concert that the all-star group has on their schedule, but it looks like they might be hitting a few other locations, including New York and South By Southwest.
