As the world waits to hear from Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl exactly which "biggest pop star in the world" is going to appear on their upcoming album Concrete and Gold, we now know they will have a Beatle playing on drums. And no, it's not Ringo.
Revealing that Sir Paul McCartney will play drums on one of the tracks in an interview with ET Canada, Grohl said “Paul McCartney plays drums on one of our songs. He’s a pal. We’ve known him for a long time. He’s great. He’s the most wonderful person in the world. He’s a great guy.”
This isn't the first time Grohl has teamed up with Macca. Grohl served as drummer for McCartney during his performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards. McCartney returned the favor by teaming up with Grohl and former Nirvana members Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic to perform "Cut Me Some Slack" at the 12-12-12: Concert for Sandy Relief.
In addition to some McCartney-style drumming, it's been revealed that The Kills' Alison Mosshart appears on the tracks "La Dee Da" and “The Sky Is a Neighborhood” and Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman sings on the track "Concrete and Gold."
Concrete and Gold will be released on Sept. 15 via RCA/Roswell Records.
