Paul McCartney Drums On New Foo Fighters Album


In June, during an interview with BBC Radio 1, Dave Grohl teased that the band’s new album, “Concrete and Gold”, has one surprise feature that he isn’t revealing.

“There’s one who is probably the biggest pop star in the world. He or she sings backup on one of the heaviest songs on the record. And we’re not telling anybody who it is,” Grohl teased.

Now, while Grohl isn’t revealing who that feature may be, ET Canada learned of another feature on the album.

ET Canada got to sit down with the Foo Fighters and Grohl revealed to them who one of the surprise guests on the album is: Paul McCartney.

“Paul McCartney plays drums on one of our songs. He’s a pal. We’ve known him for a long. He’s great. He’s the most wonderful person in the world. He’s a great guy,” Grohl said.

“He hadn’t even heard of the song. He comes in and Dave picked up an acoustic and showed him real quick. He sat on his special drum set that his tech set up for him. I sat there with a drumstick conducting. He did two takes,” the band spilled to ET Canada.
