Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl collaborates with 1980s metal legends for new project

The former Nirvana man has recorded a song with members of Ratt

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters has collaborated with members of 1980s metal band, Ratt.

Grohl has joined forces with Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy (vocals) and Warren DeMartini (guitar) to record a brand new song. The track is apparently for a new Grohl project currently referred to simply as ‘TBA’, reports Noise Creep.

“We’ll let [Dave] tell you about when he’s ready, kidz,” said Pearcy through his Twitter account. “Not for a Ratt record.” He added: “Thing is it’s a way cool thing of Dave. We’re just privileged to b a part of that. Next Ratt!”


Foo Fighters recently confirmed they are planning to head into the studio to record a new album this year. The band only released their latest studio effort ‘Wasting Light’ in April 2011 but frontman Dave Grohl revealed on the band’s official blog that he has already started compiling ideas for new songs.

He wrote: “We’re not finished yet. There are still more shows to play, more songs to write, more albums to record, for years to come. I mean if you would have told me 17 years ago that in 2012 I would be writing songs for our eighth studio album…well.”

Foo Fighters have been nominated for six gongs including Album Of The Year for ‘Wasting Light’ at the 54th annual Grammy Awards, which takes place on February 12 in Los Angeles.
