A source close to Dave Grohl has confirmed that the former NIRVANA drummer is in talks to make a guest appearance behind the kit on the forthcoming TROUBLE album, "Seven", tentatively due later in the year. "I know he was asked [to play on the CD], and he's interested, [but] that's all I know [at this time]," the source told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.
When asked recently what it was about TROUBLE's early sound that caught his ear and made him become such a huge fan, Grohl said, "TROUBLE were an unusual band. Their riffs were so intricate and slow, and they played with such power, it was hard to imagine that they had Christian beliefs. But they did. Finding out that they were God-fearing made them all the more fascinating to me. It took bravery for them to admit it."
As previously reported, TROUBLE frontman Eric Wagner recently recorded a guest appearance on one track for Dave's metal side-project PROBOT. The self-titled album, which features additional contributions from such metal luminaries as Cronos (VENOM), Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Lemmy (MOTÖRHEAD) and Snake (VOIVOD), is scheduled for release Tuesday (Feb. 10) through Southern Lord Records.
PROBOT's live-in the-MTV-studios rendition of the album cut "My Tortured Soul" will air on this weekend's "Headbanger's Ball" on MTV2. Joining Grohl for the taping (which took place on Jan. 28) were Wagner, guitarists Wino (HIDDEN HAND, ST. VITUS, THE OBSESSED, SPIRIT CARAVAN) and Greg Anderson (THORR'S HAMMER, GOATSNAKE, SUNN0))), Southern Lord Records owner), and bassist Nick Raskulinecz (PROBOT, FOO FIGHTERS mixer).
