Default Dave Grohl on explains Slash collaboration

Just received this little message in my mailbox.

Dave Grohl caught up with The Doctor this week on the line from Hawaii.

He explained how he came to play drums on a track from Guns N' Roses legend Slash’s latest solo album.

“Slash’s kid and my kid went to the same school together, and so there was this big school fundraiser and Slash called and asked if I’d Come up and jam a song. So I come up and jam at the school fundraiser with Slash. We played Surrender by Cheap Trick. But then he kept calling and was saying, hey, I’m doing this solo record, do you wanna play on it? And I said, yeah man, I’ll play drums on it for sure.”

But he confessed he had more love for Slash and Duff McKagan personally than professionally.

“To be honest, I hated Guns N' Roses back then. I love those two guys now, but I never liked the band back then.”

I should buy that album when it comes out. I also like Slash and Duff, and liked the old GNR, but this one, without them just sucks. Sorry, this is my opinion.

Imagine being one of the other parents in that school on "who is your daddy and what does he do" day!

The kids would say: "Our daddies have a common job: they are world-famous musicians."

"Hello kids! I'm Violet's dad. My job err... Well, I'm a rock star!" And all the kids go like "Mommy, mommy, I know what I want to be"

That whole interview was really good. At the very start Dave got Violet to tell a joke. 'What kind of bee's make milk?' ... 'Boobieees!'
It was adorable. It'll be up as a podcast soon, if not already.

Also, aparently they're being sued by a venue in Germany for playing too loud? Couldn't tell if he was joking...

ETA: podcast is here

It would be like the episode of Friends where Pheobe realises that Ben is in the same class as Sting's son, and she tries to get gig tickets
