FOO FIGHTERS And AC/DC Vox BRIAN JOHNSON Play ‘BACK IN BLACK ‘

11 May 2021

Foo Fighters and AC/DC‘s husky voice Brian Johnson teamed up for charity
project VAX Live: The Concert To Reunite The World as well as other big
names such as Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin, and H.E.R.

It all happened last weekend in a big venue in Los Angeles to an audience
of over 20,000 vaccinated frontline healthcare and essential workers.

The Foos played a 6-song set including a steamed-up cover of AC/DC’s
1980 anthem BACK IN BLACK with Johnson screaming himself dizzy.

FOO FIGHTERS Cover BEE GEES – FACT! Here’s ‘YOU SHOULD BE DANCING’

19 February 2021

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…

From Pop To Rock And Back – Revitalized FOO FIGHTERS Drop New Album ‘MEDICINE AT MIDNIGHT’

5 February 2021

Band: FOO FIGHTERS
Album: MEDICINE AT MIDNIGHT – 10th LP
Release: 5 February 2021

Gentleman-mastermind Dave Grohl: “We made this music for people to hear. We don’t just make it so that we can go hit the road. We write these songs so people can enjoy them and sing along, whether it’s in their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing around, singing the choruses”.

NME writes: “It’s slinky. It’s shimmery. It gets a bit Bowie and boasts one of the best
songs they’ve ever recorded. Album 10 is the soundtrack to the summer we all crave.”

Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume says: From roaring rockers to poppy singalongs and a couple of power ballads in between. You can dance to Grohl‘s tunes now. What? You can dance to Grohl‘s tunes now.

Singles: Shame Shame / No Son Of Mine / Waiting On A War
