It’s no secret that David Letterman is the biggest Foo Fighters fan around…he’d probably give Dave Grohl a key to his house.
Leading up to the premier of Sonic Highways on HBO October 17th (the making of their new album out, November 10th), Dave Grohl will sit in for an interview with Dave on Monday October 13th, followed by a different performance from the band every night next week. Each night, they will cover a song inspired by Sonic Highways each night.
Re-cap from Rolling Stone if you’re just hearing about Sonic Highways:
The band recorded the new album in eight different American cities including Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Nashville and Austin, with guest artists from each city. To name just a few guests: Dolly Parton, Slash, Rick Nielsen, LL Cool J, and even President Barack Obama.
“This isn’t just the making of our most ambitious album…This is a love letter to the history of American music.”
