    Good to hear that Chris Shiflett is included here, since he doesn't appear on the soundtrack. I cannot wait for this, it's gonna be an awesome film and an even better album.

    This is why the world hasn't ended yet. We all had to wait to hear this.

    I just hope all these great expectations and high hopes aren't too much so that when its released it will not be what everyone expected.... Seems to happen too much these days.

    I'm intrigued to hear what a song by Grohl, Homme, and Reznor sounds like. Awesome, most likely.

    Dave Grohl really can't do anything wrong, can he? Oh well, that's why I love the guy! This is definitely something to look forward.

    Of course. He's the youngest legend right there. you might not realize it right now, but once he's grey, we'll remember things he'd been through, legends he jammed with. Then again..... No one asked xD

    Thought I saw Tom Petty in the movie trailer? Wonder why he's not in on this... can anyone shed some light on that?

    When I saw Fleetwood Mac I was hoping for Danny Kirwan, Mick Fleetwood or (dare I say it?) Peter Green. But damn, this looks good.

    You're not the only one, brother. Whenever I hear of Fleetwood Mac, I think of Peter Green too

    Why Corey Taylor? The only name that doesn't fit. Nothing he's ever done has sounded good to me.

    Well, Slipknot did record at Sound City, and Corey Taylor will be in the film. I think having him brings a different perspective to the table, lately he hasn't been my favorite singer/writer, I think Stone Sour has become a little watered down in my opinion, but he definitely has a love for Rock and Roll and this is what all of them share, and I think Dave Grohl sees and can relate to that.

    I think Trent Reznor and Josh Homme stands out just as much as Corey Taylor considering the rest of the lineup and forgetting that Grohl has worked with Homme in the past, but I'm still excited for their contribution to the songs they are in.

    Yeah, Dave's drums on The Queens of the Stone Age album "Songs for the Deaf" is just awesome, "A Song for the Dead" is probably my favorite song he drums for, more than "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

    How come Pat Smear is all of a sudden being touted as a former Nirvana member? He was a touring member, he had **** all to do with their legacy. He came across on the Foos documentary as the type who acts in his own self-interest, bailing when it suits, returning when there's some attention and status to be got. I got the impression Chris Shiflett felt somewhat the same about him re-joining the Foos.

    Good to see Timmy C and Brad Wilk of RATM doing something!

    Does that mean Tom Morello got the shaft? Or he just isn't a musical collaborator all together?

    Not sure if they have Scott Reeder who played bass for Kyuss or Scott Reeder who plays drums for Fu Manchu.
