Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl revealed how John Lennon’s song “Imagine” could unite the world in a recent Bird and the Bee concert, before beginning to sing the Van Halen classic “Jump.”
Alternative Nation transcribed Grohl’s comments on the show in Los Angeles last week, which he played with Greg Kurstin, who produced the 2017 Foo Fighters album, Concrete and Gold, and is rumored to be producing Greta Van Fleet’s new album.
“You might not imagine that a drummer like me would play with a band like the Bird and the Bee, but I think herein lies the message. It’s a message of togetherness and love and hope and appreciation and kindness to one another, musically and otherwise.
And so I thought it would be appropriate to throw this song in the middle of the set just so that we can all celebrate that same love and appreciation, and togetherness, with a song of hope and love, and peace.
If we all sing this song together, I think for one moment in today’s world we can feel that. It means everything, and maybe we can even make it last forever. So I invite you to join me in singing this song.”
