This is pretty old, but seems too cool not to report it. Ed Kowalczyk of LIVE did an interview with Scenestr in February and talked about great moments from the shows last year including how Dave Grohl was at one of them rocking out to their music. This is what Ed said about that:
So, so many awesome festival moments from last year.
A highlight was watching Dave Grohl from the side of the stage at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans jamming to the show with a huge grin on his face. I hadn’t seen him in years, and it was awesome to see someone I respect so much catching the new, reunited +LIVE+ happy bug.
He also talked about who he would like to collaborate with:
You have collaborated with many artists over the years, including Tricky and Adam Duritz from Counting Crows. Are there any emerging or contemporary artists that you would like to work with now?
Oh for sure.
I’m really digging the bands that came out of the California desert scene like Queens Of The Stone Age and Eagles Of Death Metal. I love their approach to rock & roll and how rooted it is in the traditional form, but how adept they are at making it so interesting and fresh.
Josh Homme would be someone I would love to work with or produce a song of ours.
He also said this about LIVE’s new music:
I’m more excited than ever about our music and can’t wait to play the songs in concert. They are super rockin’, but I’m not sure who they sound like anymore… we are blowing the doors off the studio in ways that I didn’t imagine.
