Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently teamed up with actor Val Kilmer and comedian/musician Jack Black to perform as Sweetriver And The Huckleberry Dogs on an episode of the popular Yahoo! web series Ghost Ghirls. The segment focused on a recording studio being haunted by a 1970s-era Southern rock band — played by Grohl and friends — who require the assistance of the Ghost Ghirls to help them complete their last song, called “Back To The Beginning,” so that they can shuffle off this mortal coil permanently and cross over into the afterlife.
Another song by the trio, called “Georgia Peach,” appears on the series soundtrack and is available via iTunes.
Grohl has done some acting and even guest-hosted the late night talk show Chelsea Lately for a week. But he told us those jobs don’t hold any interest for him: “It’s funny because a lot of people ask, like, ‘Wow, you’re kind of a natural at that, you should do that.’ I’m like, ‘Why? I can fill a stadium in Australia — that’s fun!'”
In other news, Grohl will perform with the Zac Brown Band at the 47th annual Country Music Association Awards, which will be broadcast live on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET on November 6th from the Bridgestone Area in Nashville.
Foo Fighters recently began working on their eighth studio album, with Grohl saying, “We are going to make this album in a way that no one’s ever done before, and we’re pretty excited about it.”
The band is also reportedly playing its first-ever shows in Mexico this December, according to a brief message tweeted by Grohl last week.
