This is not a hoax.
So yeah, the Foo Fighters frontman, former Nirvana drummer, friend of Paul McCartney and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee treated a small crowd of starstruck, mesmerized motherfuckers at the house Pam Tillis and Peter Bogdanovich built with an hour-or-so-long acoustic set last night, according to The Tennessean. People shushed along to Foos shout-alongs like “My Hero,” “Times Like These,” “Big Me,” “Everlong” and “Learn to Fly.” The show — Grohl’s second such surprise appearance this week, as Foo Fighters played a gig at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club on Monday — was filmed.
Local Renaissance Man at Large Tim Hibbs tells the Cream he recently spoke to Foos guitarist Chris Shiflett when the band was in town recording at Zac Brown's Southern Ground Studios. (Grohl also produced and drummed on a new ZBB album.) Shiflett told Hibbs the band is cutting each track on their forthcoming album in a different city, and documenting the great American road trip and recording sesh on film, Sound City-style. If that’s indeed the case, perhaps you should expect more surprise Grohl and Foo dates nationwide.
