For the fifth night of his Hanukkah Sessions, legendary rocker Dave Grohl was joined by Beck for a special performance of the latter’s 2005 track ‘E-Pro’.
Grohl shared via Foo Fighters’ social media accounts that “it’s a little known fact that our favorite Guero actually has Jewish roots”. The recordings for the 2022 ‘Hanukkah Sessions’ were made during a secret show in Los Angeles earlier this month, where Grohl and Greg Kurstin performed nine songs in front of a live audience. The live recording featured appearances from Tenacious D, Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O, Inara George and Grohl’s daughter Violet. Covers included ‘The Spirit Of Radio’ by Rush, Randy Newman’s ‘I Love L.A.’ and David Lee Roth’s ‘Just A Gigolo’, among others.
The ‘Hanukkah Sessions’ first began in 2020, with covers of Drake, the Beastie Boys, Peaches, Bob Dylan, Mountain, Elastica, The Knack and The Velvet Underground. Last year, the series returned with covers of songs by Billy Joel, Van Halen, Barry Manilow, Lisa Loeb, the Ramones, Amy Winehouse, The Clash and KISS.
