99Rock Music News: Watch Dave Grohl Play Drums for Rise Against to Cover His Early Band, Scream

By Philip Cosores at Radio.com

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl hasn't played drums as his primary gig in a couple decades, but he's still known to get a kick out of picking up the sticks and pounding away, whether it is for a Nirvana reunion for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or backing bands like Queens of the Stone Age.
At a recent tour stop for the Foos in Adelaide, opening act Rise Against announced that legendary punk band Scream's drummer happened to be on site. Of course, many in the crowd had no idea who Scream was and didn't really put it together until Grohl walked on stage. In fact, Grohl got his start as drummer for Scream, backing up the Washington D.C. band for a couple albums before Nirvana called and asked him to join.

After months of waiting, our first look at HBO's forthcoming documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck has finally arrived.

A press release states that the documentary features "dozens of Nirvana songs and performances as well as previously unheard Cobain originals," as well as "no-holds-barred access to Kurt Cobain's archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks."

Anticipation for the documentary has been at an all-time high since the director Brett Morgen revealed on Twitter that the film's soundtrack includes "a mind-blowing 12-minute acoustic Cobain unheard track."
Over the years, Morgen began working more closely with Cobain and Courtney Love's daughter, Francis Bean, who became an executive producer on the film and allowed Morgen access to her archive of Cobain's effects, too.

Watch the trailer below. Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck will air May 4 on HBO.

By Shannon Carlin of radio.com
Taylor Swift isn't the only pop star who can make the wishes of her devoted fans come true.

At a show in Sydney, Australia recently, Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl stopped the show to adhere to a sign in the front row.
The sign said, "Drumstick for a blind guy." So, Grohl gave the fan a drumstick.

In the clip, you can even hear Grohl shout to drummer Taylor Hawkins, "Give me a drumstick," before handing it to the fan.

I think we now know who the nicest guy in rock is.

Watch the touching clip of Grohl making a fan's wish come true, via The Daily Mail, below.
