Dave Grohl, Band on the Run August 10, 2017 by peter Another clip from the McCartney tribute at the White House, with Dave Grohl playing Band on the Run. Not an easy thing. The impressive thing is the band. Who are those guys? Great stuff. Share this:FacebookLinkedInEmailTwitterMoreTumblrPinterestReddit
Shit this is killer good. Best part is the big smile Grohl let’s out during the final verse. He knows they are nailing it, and he is having a great time in the process.
Notice how the other guitarist plays all the tough stuff, while Grohl pretty much just strums chords. But that’s what rhythm guitarists do, for the most part. And drummers often make good rhythm guitarists.
The drummer and keyboardist are from Blue Man Group, I think.
The backing band is McCartney’s touring band since 2003. Brian Ray (guitars), Rusty Anderson (guitars), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums) and Wix Wickens (keyboards etc).
Actually, Wix has been with McCartney since 1989, and has played with him, live, more than anyone else ever (over 500+ shows)
