ELTON JOHN TELLS DAVE GROHL: “FROM ENGELBERT TO QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE…A BIT OF A MINDFUCK”
Never Say Never…! Dave Grohl confirmed that Elton John is making a guest appearance on the new Queens Of The Stone Age new album. Grohl is appearing as drummer.
Dave Grohl interviewed Sir Elton as part of his week covering chat show host Chelsea Lately on her late night talk show in America.
He said: “Recently, Elton and I recorded something together. Something that people wouldn’t imagine the two of us doing together” Elton said: “I was in Vegas and I flew back to LA and Engelbert Humperdinck had written me a very sweet letter and asked me to sing a duet with him. He is part of my history and I couldn’t say no so I went and recorded a song with him.
Then I drove three blocks and went from Engelbert to Queens Of The Stone Age, which was a bit of a mindfuck.”
Grohl said: “I remember you (Elton) walking in and him being, like, (lethargically) ‘Have you got a ballad for me?’ and we were just like, ‘no, we do not have a ballad for you.'”
Elton added: “After three hours we got it and he (Grohl) drummed on every take and every take was amazing. He’s built like a brick shithouse when he drums.”
