Last night the Foo Fighters joined ex-pat British comic and actor James Corden for a balls-out edition of Carpool Karaoke, the consistently popular viral segment on his Late, Late Show.
Coinciding with the release this week of the group’s ninth studio album Concrete and Gold, Grohl and bandmates joined Corden in a series of lusty renditions including ‘All My Life’, 'Best Of You’ and ‘Learn To Fly.’ All-new banger from the latest LP ‘The Sky Is A Neighbourhood’ was also given the SUV-singalong treatment.
Between numbers the group shared memories, including the time the ex-Nirvana drummer broke his leg on stage in Gothenburg, Sweden.
"I told the audience I’m gonna fix this, then be back," Growl recalled. "SO they pull me off to the side and tell me it’s dislocated. They put gauze in my mouth, said “bite on this”.
It gets worse: ‘My leg was broken too, so I said, ok “can I finish the show?” This guy helping me said “well, I have to hold your ankle in place”. So I was like, you gotta him onstage.’
At the end of the segment the band swing by a music shop, where Growl, drummer Taylor Hawkins and Corden compete in an impromptu comic drum off, before all taking to the instore stage and performing Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, a recent tour favourite also performed at the 02, London on Tuesday (September 19).
Earlier this week guitarist Chris Shiflett told Gigwise about the time they jammed with Paul McCartney, their relationship with new über-producer Greg Kurstin and discussed a recorded but never-to-be released Foo Fighters album.
