Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, singer-rapper-musician Anderson .Paak, and hip-hop veterans A Tribe Called West will unite on stage at this year’s Grammy Awards, which will take place February 12th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Also scheduled to perform at this year’s show are Adele, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Metallica, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. James Corden will host.

The 59th annual Grammy Awards are produced by AEG Ehrlich Ventures for The Recording Academy. Ken Ehrlich is executive producer, Louis J. Horvitz is director, Ben Winston is a producer, and David Wild and Ehrlich are the writers.

A Sonic Highways highways outtake clip has surfaced on Laundry Room Studios’ YouTube of Dave Grohl listening to an unreleased early 90’s recording titled “Gods Look Down.” Watch below!

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins isn’t a fan of one of Foo Fighters’ radio hits.

Hawkins has revealed that he is not a big fan of “The One,” a track the band recorded for the soundtrack of the 2002 Jack Black comedy film Orange County.

“I’ve always hated this song,” he told Kerrang!. “I hate the way it sounds, the production of it; it was a total cop out.”

He added, “We were really trying to finish [fourth album] ‘One By One’. I liked the messed-up ugliness of that record, but we got asked by Tom Hanks’ son Colin Hanks to do the song for this movie called Orange County. Dave wrote it, I wasn’t crazy about it. It was straight-up pop – and there’s nothing wrong with that – but we were still trying to figure out how to be the Foo Fighters.”

WWE wrestler and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho recently interviewed Gary Spivack and Clay Busch of Danny Wimmer Presents, the promoters of Rock on the Range and Carolina Rebellion, on Talk is Jericho. During the interview, Jericho discussed Dave Grohl.

“I’ll tell you the one thing about Grohl, we went to the Clive Davis Grammy party last year. They weren’t selling any more liquor, but I paid the waiter 100 bucks to buy me and Grohl some shots. He said he was going to pay me 50 bucks, but then I never saw him again for the rest of the night. So Dave Grohl, you owe me 50 bucks if you’re listening to this. I want my money.”
