The Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, and former Nirvana drummer are to co-host The Tonight Show on Monday. Dave joins Jimmy Fallon to confer the NBC late-night show. The pair delivers the monologue together, interview guests including comedian Jim Jeffries and musician Blake Shelton together, and play a list of games. Jimmy, it seems, will no longer be lonely or an easy target and will give ample space to his co-host, whom he is stating was joining him in an increased capacity on this evening’s show. Dave has been ramping up his entertainment projects, lately directing the What Drives Us documentary and executive producing an alteration of his mother’s book from Cradle To Stage as an unscripted series for Paramount+.
This month, Ahead stated that Foo Fighters will be initiated into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame later this year.
The band will be initiated alongside Tina Turner, JAY-Z, Todd Rundgren, The Go-Gos, and Carole King during a ceremony at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena in Cleveland, Ohio on the 30th of Oct.
Dave said that his first reaction to hearing the news of Foos’ induction was one of “surprise and, of course, very generous”. “I recently realized it is been half my life since I have been in this band,” he stated. “I feel, in a way, that I have almost neglected how much we have done in the past 25 years. I think because I am working in a forward motion always & I don’t spend too much time sitting down and looking back at what we have done or reflecting on our past deeds. I kind of look forward to the following thing. So today has been a bit more reflective than earlier.”
The ex-Scream drummer was also back on the show in February, speaking about his band’s latest album Medicine at Midnight.
