Dave Grohl Revealed As Ghost BC Drummer

Posted by on April 1, 2013

Remember when it was mentioned that Dave Grohl had played drums on Ghost BC’s cover of ABBA’s “I’m A Marionette?” It turns out that Grohl might have a little more involvement with the band than that, as it’s been revealed that the journeyman Foo Fighters frontman is actually one of the “nameless ghouls” in the band. Grohl broke his silence about playing on Infestissimum in an interview.

“I’ve already played the devil (in 2006′s Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny), so it was a no-brainer to join forces with an evil pope,” Grohl said. “The last time I had a hunch about joining up with a band that signed to a major label for their second album, it worked out pretty well. And with the Foos done touring for the time being, and the whole Sound City thing over, I can concentrate on being a nameless ghoul, and no one will be any the wiser.”

While Ghost’s ABBA cover is only going to be a b-side for Infestissimum, it was the first glimpse that Grohl might have a little more of a hand in things with the band. In addition to his forthcoming Ghost BC duties, Grohl also played drums on the forthcoming Queens of the Stone Age album, and will likely work on a new Them Crooked Vultures album following Ghost’s tour dates, which can be seen after the jump.

 [UPDATE, April 2: If you didn't figure it out already, this was an April Fool's joke. It seemed just plausible enough to be true, since Grohl does drum on the ABBA cover, but we figured the ridiculous quote and the link to the Rick Astley/Nirvana mashup might give it away]
