How do you get people to pay attention to your record? Have Dave Grohl play on it. Just ask Tenacious D and Queens of the Stone Age. Grohl plays on the track “Running With The Wolves” on Prodigy’s new album “Invaders Must Die” out on March 2nd.
Singer Keith Flint said: “We didn’t do it to be us and Dave our rock buddy collaboration, but just as a friend of ours who does wicked drums that did a track with us.”
“We’ve known Dave for quite a few years,” explained Liam Howlett. “We haven’t just phoned him up and said, ‘Dave can you get on the record?’
“He just emailed to say he’s finished his touring, he really loves drumming and wants to get back into [it].
“He sent me some drums on a hard-drive with hope that it might inspire me to write a song – sure enough when I got the hard-drive it was really inspirational.”
“It’s good to hear him play the drums without any other instruments – people don’t hear that.
“Within the first ten seconds of it being on I was like ‘Yeah this is a song’ – the track was born Run With The Wolves.”
Dave Grohl is such a badass. He decides which bands need a revival or a boost and he gives it to them. Like a “B-12 Shot”, Dave delivers! Dave Grohl’s drum playing is like Taebo mixed with 5 Hour Energy Drink but it’s like 5 Week Energy Drink.. with Red Bull and Super Sperm. That’s what Dave Grohl does.

It’s a slow morning for The Perv today which means that it was a crazy night last night for The Perv. Let’s start things out this morning with a funny little video of Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters giving “hit lessons” to Kyle Gass from Tenacious D. It has some swearing in it so it may be a little NSFW. Just remember one thing “Don’t Bore Us, Get To The Chorus!”
I haven’t watched it yet but I’ll give “ya’ll” my opinion on it later. It’s on the DVR but I heard it kicked ass. Here are the videos from the show if you missed it.
