Dave Grohl will serve as co-host on this evening’s (May 24) episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
The FOO FIGHTERS frontman was previously a guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” three times, but this will be first attempt at co-hosting.
Grohl has been one of the most beloved and respected figures on the international music scene since his recorded debut with NIRVANA on 1991’s generation-defining “Nevermind”. Grohl took center stage with FOO FIGHTERS‘ 1995 self-titled debut, the first album in a massive 12-Grammy-winning catalogue, including the band’s most recent release “Medicine At Midnight” (2021). Grohl has a well-earned reputation as a prolific collaborator through his work with Paul McCartney, THEM CROOKED VULTURES, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, late legends David Bowie and Lemmy Kilmister, as well as Mick Jagger, Neil Young, Elton John, NINE INCH NAILS, Roger Taylor and Brian May of QUEEN, to name a few.
In 2013, Grohl made his debut as a feature director/producer with the acclaimed documentary “Sound City” about the Van Nuys, California studio where NIRVANA recorded “Nevermind” in 1991, which would sell more than 30 million copies and transform the modern musical landscape. Premiering to unanimous raves at Sundance and achieving a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, “Sound City” focused both on the history of the legendary studio and on the ongoing fight to preserve the human element of music. Grohl also directed the eight-part HBO docuseries “Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways”, which premiered in October 2014 and went on to win two of the four Emmys for which it was nominated (outstanding sound mixing for nonfiction programming and outstanding sound editing for nonfiction programming).
