The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl guest-hosted for Jimmy Kimmel on last night’s Halloween special, dressing up as David Letterman and interviewing actor Kristen Bell, who appeared with Magnum PI-style moustache and chest hair. Kristen sang her song “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” from the Disney movie Frozen. Dave then jumped behind a drum kit and the pair launched into a cover of Metallica classic Enter Sandman with Kimmel’s house band. Dave also interviewed Alice Cooper on the show:
Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant hopes his bandmates would have retired the band if he had died young, like drummer John Bonham did. The band called it a day in 1980 following John’s death, and Robert, bassist John Paul Jones and guitarist Jimmy Page have only reunited to perform on special occasions. The last time was 10 years ago, with John Bonham’s son Jason filling in in drums for his late father. Robert continues to insist that there are still no plans to regroup – and he feels he owes it to Bonham and the spirit of the group to keep it that way.
Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo paid tribute to hometown legends Black Sabbath during Metallica’s show last night in Birmingham, England. They covered the Sabbath classic “War Pigs” during their solo section of the show, and the fans joined in to sing in the lyrics. Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield inducted Black Sabbath into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March 2006.
