Foo Fighters frontman performed with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band

The jazz band took part in a second line parade prior to the Grammys event on Monday, with footage posted online of Grohl performing with the group in an elevator.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that David Bowie once turned down an invite to work with Dave Grohl on the music to a film, saying simply: “I got to be honest, it’s not my thing.”
“We played at his 50th birthday party at Madison Square Garden and that was the last time I saw him, so that was in 1997?” Grohl said.
He continued: “About two years ago, I got approached by this movie to do a song for the movie, so I thought, ‘Maybe I’ll have someone else sing, I’ll do the music and then have another vocalist.’ And then I thought, “Maybe I’ll ask and see if David would want to do it.’ So the next day I get an email and it says, ‘David, I watched the movie and I got to be honest, it’s not my thing.’ He said, ‘I’m not made for these times.'”
Grohl and Bowie’s correspondance continued with the Foo Fighters frontman thanking Bowie for considering the offer. In response, Bowie wrote: “Alright, now that’s settled then, fuck off.” Grohl says he isn’t sure whether Bowie was joking or serious.
