    Watch Dave Grohl Cover ‘Summer Breeze’ With Beck and Tenacious D

    OK, this is quite entertaining and actually better than the original!

    I'm too lazy and careless to try to figure out instagram and links, so here goes my one and only attempt...

    Dave Grohl joined Beck, Tenacious D, John C. Reilly and producer Greg Kurstin onstage at Los Angeles' Largo nightclub on Tuesday night to run through a comical rendition of Seals & Crofts' 1972 classic "Summer Breeze." You can watch a video from the performance below.

    Nope, not for me.

    All done with Dave Grohl covering other people's music.

    Thanks anyway.

    Said this before, when you fail write songs of your own making you just steal from those who do. Grohl is the modern Jimmy Page.

    Grohl has always been overrated in my book, as were the Foo Fighters. Some good tracks.

    It just annoyed me to see the likes of Roth, Joan Jett, Rick Springfield and the like all jumping onstage with the Foo Fighters. Frankly, I have more use for Joan Jett AND Rick Springfield's 3 big pop rock hits than I do the entirety of the Foo Fighters catalog. And who in that band thought the Bee Gees needed to get the Foo Fighters treatment? The Foo Fighters weren't even as much as a pimple on Andy Gibb's ass, much less the Bee Gees proper.

    If Grohl wants to cover somebody else's tunes, get Krist out of retirement and reform Nirvana.

    Beck, Tenacious D and John C. Reilly and Dave Grohl, circa 2022.

    Oooh! How hip and ironic their take on that song is, yet respectfully reverential at the same time!

    Fuck off.

    A quarter century past their collective sell-by date, it's the new celebrity supergroup Male Menopause!

    Here's a better idea: instead of diddling about onstage performing a cover tune nobody asked them for, how about Jack Black and John C. Reilly make a movie worth seeing, Beck and Grohl make some original music worth hearing and The Other Guy In Tenacious D can do...whatever else it is he does.

    Absolutely agree! I enjoyed their 2nd and 3rd albums, but I was in middle school when those came out. So, I haven't revisited them in many years, probably for the best. After that, the creativity mostly went kaput. I did keep up afterwards to an extent, mercifully for free / via YouTube.

    It irked me how they kept being rewarded with Grammys for mediocre/blah songs and albums. I know those things are pretty much meaningless, but what a complete joke.

    If Roth, Joan Jett, Rick Springfield and all the like [add Brian May, Paul McCartney, John Paul Jones, Josh Homme, Rick Nielsen, Joe Walsh] can have fun with the Foo Fighters, they can’t be wrong.

    The Foo Fighters seemed more like fans than artists who could actually come up with some original stuff that’s impressive. They never wowed me. I did like Dave’s movie Sound City. To be honest, Dave has gotten to where his schtick has gotten old. In a way he’s like Sammy Hagar. Due to his own lack of creativity he has to go jam and talk with other artists.

    Not entirely true, the problem with Page is that he had an attribution problem. Grohl is openly borrowing. They key difference is that unlike the poor black dudes that wrote those great blues' riffs, the dude that wrote Summer Breeze is getting paid more than he was prior. Not checking Wiki so was that Cat Stevens/Usef Mohammed or some shit?

    This guy, poisoned by a jealous husband and a legend. and mauled by the hound dogs of hell, sadly:

    Rock and Roll is old blues slang for fuckin. It really was about Elvis’ pelvis and did it make the girls wet and make people wanna fuck? Hell yeah! Is it the Devil’s music? Absolutely! Got to sell your soul down at the crossroads to make real good fuckin music.

    Nah, they just wanted to look hip and relevant by attaching themselves to another newer popular rock band. Doing so made them look more pathetic than cool, because the FF - despite being popular - have never been either hip or relevant. Artless, safe stadium rock commerce playing tunes that enable people to 'spontaneously' sway in the bleachers at all the right moments.

    And I would add, even though this doubtless sounds like what it is - an old codger bleating on about how great things used to be - it's like...

    The 'newer' rock bands I've seen in the last 25 years or so (and to be sure there were others before then), both professional and amateur...if I see them on youtube or live or just publicity stills...

    I can't even count the number of them that have the gear and the 'look'...they are all wearing the standard black onstage rock clothes, plenty of tattoos, they have all the rock star poses and facial expressions down pat...

    And when I hear the music, I personally hear little to nothing in terms of inspiration or perspiration, or really any particular talent. All the trimmings and no turkey/all the sizzle and no steak.

    Look at Van Halen. They had all the cool stage clothes and all the moves, but they also had the music. The music is (or should be) the foundation, and all the other stuff is (or should be) secondary vs. a package attractively gift wrapped and inside is nothing but styrofoam peanuts.
