FOO FIGHTERS covering the BEE GEES? Oh yeah, it happened for real
with one of the Gibb brothers’ mega disco hits YOU SHOULD BE DANCING.
And if you think that Dave Grohl can’t sing like da brudders you got it wrong.
“We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘OK, well I’m
gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung
like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life! I sang the
song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like
this for the last 25 years!” said Grohl in a press statement.
Here we go…

and his equally famous British wife TOYAH WILLCOX (8 top 40 hits and over more
than 20 LPs) are entertaining us every week, for a while now, with covering classic
Last week they fabricated a rambling cover of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, and
now they show their love for the late great guitar genius Jimi Hendrix. The couple’s rendition of his awesome 1967 killer Purple Haze is – as we are already used to by
now – crazy, creaking and squeaking, screamy and noisy, and big fun to watch.
Excuse me while I kiss the sky…

It’s Fripp/Willcox‘s next pick in a series of covers
of classic songs they play from their home and they
definitely love it. Have fun too!
