During a recent live conversation, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl discussed jamming the Led Zeppelin classic “Whole Lotta Love” with Prince years ago when Prince was doing a residency in Los Angeles at the Forum. Alternative Nation transcribed Grohl’s comments, where he revealed that there is a secret unheard recording of his Led Zeppelin jam with Prince.
“We go into it and it was so fucking bad ass. I was like this is fucking incredible. And the backup singers are like, ‘Whole Lotta Love.’ Like it was a whole thing. It was un fucking real. It was unbelievable.
We do the song, bam! We end the song. He’s like ‘YEAH!’ People are high-fiving, and it’s like we’re amazing, this is fucking great. And he goes, we should do that and I’m like, hell yeah we should do that! And he goes, What are you doing next week?”
I was like uhhhhhh, I guess I’m coming back to the fucking Forum for the tenth time. So then I go back to catering where my wife is still eating, I’m drenched in sweat. She’s like, ‘Where have you been?’ I’m like, ‘Jamming with Prince.’ Then we sat and watched the show again. The next week I had a fucking school fundraiser and I never got to jam with Prince again. But I got a tape!”
Grohl mentioned that a friend had recorded the jam session. Maybe someday we’ll get to hear it!
