Default FF collaborating with legendary artists.....

I can't imagine this hasn't been discussed in the past.........I'm counting on the "old heads" for the answers to this. LOL

How many "legendary rock (or other genre) artists" have FF and/or Dave worked with??????
C'mon give us a list, even if they were one off/ surprise guest appearances, etc.

It seems as if they've worked with "everyone"!!!!


P.S. I'm talking musicians, not producers and the like. OH! and feel free to direct to the thread that has all this info if one already exists! THX

Aye all the press I read before the album stated that he'd drummed for Run with Wolves and made no mention of His drumming for Stand Up. However when I got the album upon reading the linear notes saw Dave credited.

Mike Watt
Stewart Copeland
Will Ferrell

Also, the Foos played the Bridge School benefit 3 times, so if he took park in the finale you've got Neil Young and whoever else was playing those years (though not in 2002 cause they had to leave early)

Not sure what you constitute as legendary, but the following come to mind that I have seen Foos perform live with on stage with (that haven't been mentioned already):

Fred Schneider (B-52s)
Chris Squire (Yes)
Jack Black (Tenacious D)
Earl Hudson (Bad Brains)
