Dave Grohl, Greg Kurstin Wrap Up ‘Hanukkah Sessions’ With Velvet Underground Cover

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin wrapped up their “Hanukkah Sessions” video series with a cover of “Rock & Roll” by The Velvet Underground.

Grohl played the song and handled drums with Kurstin on keyboards/piano. Grohl shared his cover of “Rock & Roll” on YouTube.

About their Hanukkah Sessions project, Grohl said, “As 2020 comes to a close and another Hanukkah ends (my first!) I am reminded of the two things that have gotten me through this year: music and hope.”

“This project, which initially began as a silly idea, grew to represent something much more important to me,” he added. “It showed me that the simple gesture of spreading joy and happiness goes a long way, and as we look forward, we should all make an effort to do so, no matter how many candles are left to light on the menorah.”

Grohl and Kurstin had been celebrating Hanukkah for the past eight days by covering songs by eight famous Jewish artists on each night of the Festival of Lights.

The video series kicked off with The Beastie Boys classic “Sabotage” last Thursday at the beginning of the Jewish festival.

It was followed by covers of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling,” Elastica‘s “Connection,” Bob Dylan‘s “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” Peaches‘ “F**k the Pain Away,” Mountain‘s “Mississippi Queen” and the Knack‘s “Frustrated.”
