Jack Black Reveals What Is ‘Unfathomable’ About Dave Grohl


Tenacious D members Jack Black and Kyle Gass discussed yet again recording with Foo Fighters and Nirvana legend Dave Grohl on their new album in a new Rolling Stone interview.

Rolling Stone asked, “Dave Grohl plays drums again on this record. Is it hard to tell someone as esteemed as him what to do musically?”

Gass said, “Well, it kinda is at first, until you realize it’s your album and you want it to be right.”

Black added, “Now, let me just say, every time we make a new album, we ask Dave Grohl if he would be available/interested in throwin’ down on the new Tenacious D record. And we always assume this is the year that he’s gonna say, ‘Sorry, guys, I’m a little busy.’ But he fuckin’ comes through. Again, he comes through. Unfathomable. I don’t know why, I don’t how, but we got him again. And he crushes it. He crushes it with thunderskins. Do you give him notes? First you wanna hear what’s he gonna do, and there’s always minds blown. He’s the greatest living drummer, what are you gonna do?”

Gass then said, “Go in there and say ‘Hey, Dave, can you hit a little harder? Come on, bro?'”
