Dave Grohl On Working With John Paul Jones: 'It Was One Of The Highlights Of My Life'
Dave Grohl has said that working with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones was one of his life highlights. The Foo Fighters' frontman played drums in a tribute band with Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins, who swapped to singer to play Led Zep classics such as "Black Dog" and "Rock And Roll" at Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, where Led Zeppelin picked up an honour from US president Barack Obama for their contribution to America culture and the arts. As well as featuring on the Foo Fighters' 2005 album "In Your Honor", Jones also played with Grohl in supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme. Speaking about this, Grohl told: "It was one of the highlights of my life when John Paul Jones said, 'Now I've been in two great bands'. That was a huge deal for me!" As NME reports, Dave Grohl is currently working on his documentary about legendary recording studio Sound City, which will get its work premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January next year (2013).
