SONG DAVE GROHL WROTE FOR DAVID BOWIE TO BE RECORDED BY ANOTHER ACT
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl told GQ that a song he wrote and originally planned as a collaboration with the late David Bowie will see the light of day -- but it will be recorded and released by a different, yet-to-be-announced band.
Grohl told the magazine that the song was in limbo for a long time after Bowie turned it down. He explained, "I tried for years, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. We tried it, kind of worked on it, then I actually contacted Bowie about doing it together for this movie soundtrack, that didn’t work out. He didn’t like the movie, it wasn’t me, it was the movie (laughs). Then I started working on it again, and I then gave it to another band, who hasn’t used it yet.”
- When Grohl was asked which band would be recording the track, he refused to answer, saying, “I don’t want to spoil the surprise."
- David Bowie passed away after a long battle with cancer in January of 2016, at the age of 69.
- Foo Fighters will resume their current North American tour in support of the band's 2017 LP Concrete And Gold on July 6th in Columbia, Maryland.
