Dave Grohl: 'I'm at Led Zeppelin's beck and call'
Foo Fighters man happy to help out if reunited legends need him
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has spoken of his desire to play drums for the newly reformed Led Zeppelin.
The star explained to NME.COM that he is "at their beck and call", should they want to get in touch about performing with him.
"Ah, if I got that call, what the fuck do you think I’d be saying?" Grohl said. "I’d say, ‘Hey [Foo Fighters bandmates] Chris and Taylor, let’s take a little break for a few days, I’ll see ya later!' But I don’t expect that to happen."
Grohl explained that, although getting to play with Led Zeppelin would be unlikely, he would at least be trying to get into the band’s forthcoming gig at London’s O2 Arena on November 26.
He also acknowledged the contribution of Jason Bonham, son of original Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who would perform with the band at the gig.
"Jason should be the one," he said. "Everyone knows that. He’s a fucking phenomenal drummer."
