DAVE GROHL: Another Drum Challenge For 10-Year-Old Nandi
Dave Grohl has continued that drum battle between him and ten-year-old Nandi Bushell. Nandi won the first round so Dave had to step it up by writing a theme song for her. He says every superhero needs a theme song and then thanked the "Grohlettes" for the background vocals. During the first round Nandi kicked off the drum-off by playing "Everlong."
Eddie Vedder has made a song from his score to the Robert F. Kennedy documentary, Return to Mount Kennedy, to raise money for a charity. Two versions called, "Cartography," are being issued by the Sub Pop Singles Club -- Eddie's original and a remix by Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner. Proceeds will go to Fair Fight, a non-profit that fights voter suppression. You can watch both versions in the blogs sec. The original is audio-only, while Nick Zinner's remix is with scenes from the film.
