Foo Fighters Being New AlbumDave Grohl, often cited as the nicest guy in rock and roll, gave Epiphone a super high five this year by using his Jack Casady Signature Bass for all of the promo concerts supporting his acclaimed documentary, Sound City (which also featured Sir Paul McCartney). The shows were epic barnburners and featured a revolving cast of rock legends including Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor, John Fogerty and Rick Springfield.

Now comes word from Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins that contrary to what the band thought last year, the Foo Fighters will soon go to the studio to begin work on a new album.
"We're getting our ideas together," Hawkins told Billboard. "Dave has his brain working overtime, like usual, and he's got a lot of great ideas, both musically and conceptually, none that I can speak of at this moment, but it's gonna be great. It's gonna be cool."

"When we start working on a record," Grohl told NME, "what I've found is we work best at our own pace, and sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes a while." Whenever it happens, we look forward to it. Stand by. Meanwhile, here's Mr. Grohl with the Sound City Players bashing out Queens of the Stone Ages' "Hangin' Tree."
