Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Dave Grohl likes Paul McCartney's jam sessions
Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl is impressed by how Sir
Paul McCartney is 'willing to go off' during jam sessions, reports music-news.com.
Dave and Krist Novoselic, the two surviving members of Nirvana, teamed up with
Paul for a performance at the recent 12-12-12 concert in December at Madison
Square Garden, which benefitted those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Dave and
Paul have developed a tight musical bond of late and often play together. The
Foo Fighters rocker understands why the Beatles songwriter is such a legend. 'I
remember rehearsing with him for the Grammys. He comes in and just wants to
jam,' Dave told People magazine. 'He's willing to go off more than most younger
musicians.' Dave debuted his new documentary Sound City, about a legendary Los
Angeles music studio, at the Sundance Film Festival recently. New to the film
industry, the musician is amazed by how the feature came together. 'The idea
was to make a YouTube clip to piggyback on the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's
Nevermind [which was recorded at Sound City],' Dave explained. 'We asked a list
of people who made records there to be involved: Tom Petty, Neil Young. Everybody
got back saying they wanted to be in it. 'I don't know how this movie world
works. I'm pretty sure the fact that we completed it is nothing short of a
miracle. 'Sound City is scheduled for release later this year.
