Dave Grohl plays drums at 'Grease' Sing-A-Long event - watch

The Foo Fighters man joined Sha Na Na for a rendition of 'Lucille' in Los Angeles

Dave Grohl recently performed as part of a Grease singalong in Los Angeles.

The Foo Fighters frontman took to the drums during last week's 35th annual Grease Sing-A-Long event at the Hollywood Bowl, playing with Sha Na Na - who feature on the original soundtrack to the classic 1978 film - on Little Richards' 'Lucille'.

Dave Grohl also recently joined Chevy Metal - the covers band featuring his Foo Fighters bandmates Taylor Hawkins and Chris Shiflett - for a one-off performance last month. During Grohl's hour-long covers set with Chevy Metal, the band tackled Queen and David Bowie's 'Under Pressure'.

Grohl and Chevy Metal were performing in Costa Mesa, California as part of the city's 60th anniversary celebrations. Their set also included covers of The Rolling Stones' 'Miss You', The Knack's 'My Sharona' and The Vapors' 'Turning Japanese', local newspaper the Daily Pilot reports.

"I don't get to play with Chevy Metal all the time," Grohl told the crowd. "It's the one band in the world I wish I could be in, but the fucking drummer's the boss. What can I do? Every once in a while I get a phone call [telling me] 'OK you're allowed to play one show'. And they let me come play with my favourite fucking band in the world, Chevy Metal."

Last month Hawkins revealed that Foo Fighters have started work on their follow-up to 2011's 'Wasting Light' - and hinted that it could be a concept album. "We're getting started," he told Billboard. "We're getting our ideas together. 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."
