Question Dave's Collaborations.

Does anyone have a complete listing of guest appearances Dave has made for other bands/artists? Like even which songs on which albums? The NME special is not as detailed as I'd hoped and I don't really have time to research all of it. I'm hoping some kind soul here already has an exhaustive account and might post it. Or if you know of one somewhere already and can refer me to that. I want to go into iTunes and build a playlist of all of his appearances.

Thanks in advance.

Default Re: Dave's Collaborations.

I'll list everything I know about Dave and his musical career.

He started in the band Scream, in which he played the drums. (1986-1990)

Drummer of Nirvana (1990-1994)

Leadsinger and guitarist of Foo Fighters (1995- )

Singing and drumming on the song Goodbye To Lament with Tony Iommi (2000)

Drumming on the whole QOTSA record Songs for the Deaf and the whole tour afterwards (2002)

Probot, Dave gathered his favorite singers from the metal world and made a record. He played a lot of the instruments by himself. (2003)

During the grammy awards 2003 Dave was one of many musicians who performed London Calling in memory of Joe Strummer. (2003)

Drumming on the record Four on the Floor by Juliette and the Licks (2006)

Drummer in Tenacious D

Drummer and former of Them Crooked Vultures along with Josh Homme (QOTSA) and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) (2009)

Drumming in the song Watch This by Slash (2010)

These are the projects I know best, but I've also heard and read that Dave has performed with over 30 bands during his career, some of them: Killing Joke, Nine Inch Nails and The Prodigy.

Hope this helped you out!

Also

1992
Grohl plays drums on Buzz Osborne's Kiss-styled solo-EP "King Buzzo", where he was credited as Dale Nixon.

1993
helped recreating the music of the Beatles' early years for the movie Backbeat by contributing drums.

1994
Grohl plays drums on 2 songs for Mike Watt's "Ball-Hog or Tugboat?"

2002
Grohl contributes guitar to a cover of Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting For You", appearing on David Bowie's album "Heathen"

2004
Dave drums on several tracks for NINs "With Teeth" and on "Bad Boyfriend", for Garbage, released on "Bleed Like Me" in 2005

2006
Recorded drums on Juliette and the Licks album "Four On The Floor"
Recorded drums on Pete Yorn's "For Us", appearing on the album "Nightcrawler"

2008
Grohl joins Paul McCartney's band, singing backup vocals and playing guitar on "Band On The Run", and drums on "Back in the USSR" and "I Saw Her Standing There".

2009
Drums on "Run With The Wolves" and "Stand Up" for Prodigy's album "Invaders Must Die"

Michael Jackson
Dave Grohl recorded drums to the Jackson song "(I Can't Make It) Another Day" in 2002 I think. He didn't hear anything about it in the following years. But in 2010 it was released on Michael Jackson's album. However, as Dave said in a recent interview, they only used a sample of the snare drum he hit. Too bad, I wish we had heard his full drum parts. That would have made the song even better. Features also Lenny Kravitz on guitar.

Why not check Wikipedia while you're at it. It's pretty detailed here:

Thank ya'll. I have the very earliest dain brabmage/scream stuff. Or at least, all of it I could find. But I kinda lost interest during the last decade and didn't pay attention. I was shocked to hear Dave had recorded with Michael Jackson, for example. So thank you all for your replies.

Yeah well unless you're a drummer it's easy to lose interest in his early projects, with the exception of Nirvana of course!

I coulda sworn that both Dave and Taylor played drums with Queen, or Roger Taylor, I wanna say at Wembley?

Seems like it was several years ago, seems like they were playin' 'We Will Rock You', no?

It seems so vivid now, but perhaps I'm mistaken,

VH1 rock honours Dave; Taylor and Roger were all drums for a track.

Default Re: Dave's Collaborations.

I've seen a lot of questions about the work that Dave has done with other artists.

Here's a list of all the artists (at least that I know of) Dave has collaborated with, and that spawned official releases.

Obviously he has collaborated with more people, especially live, but I only counted the ones with an official release. So for example his collaboration with Paul McCartney does not count.

I also did not put Michael Jackson on here, because of the fact Dave denies hearing himself on the track. I mean, if the man himself does not want credits for it, who am I right..

For further reference I also listed his bands and his solo and soundtrack work.

Bands
Freak Baby
Mission Impossible
Dain Bramage
Scream
Nirvana
Foo Fighters
Them Crooked Vultures


Collaborations (in no particular order)

King Buzzo
Cat Power
Killing Joke
John Doe
Mike Watt
The Stinky Puffs
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Queens of the Stone Age
Tenacious D
Pearl Jam (live collaboration. Has 2 known official releases)
Lemmy
David Bowie
Pete Yorn
Juliette and the Licks
Jackson United
Slash
Earthlings
Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders
MXPX
Reeves Gabrels
Neil Young
The Bangles
Harlingtox AD
Tony Imommi
Puff Daddy
Garbage
Nine Inch Nails
The Prodigy
Mondo Generator
Jubilee (no release known yet, but worth a mention for future reference)


Production work and Writing

- Verbena (production)
- Rye Coalition (production, writing)


Solo and Soundtracks

- Late!
- Probot
- Touch Soundtrack
- Backbeat Soundtrack
- Rising Son Soundtrack
- Reno 911 Soundtrack (end credtits on film. Covers Police & Thieves by The Clash. Not released but certainly worth a mention)


Let me know if I missed anything. Because I collect all of his work, and I am a completist.

Hope this helps anyone.
