Speaking to Rolling Stone about CalJam 17, an epic one-day super festival conceived by Grohl, the renowned songwriter boasted of the lineup he had in store, set to feature performances from a handful of Foos' "drinking buddies", including the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, Royal Blood, and more.

Opening up about his friendship with the grunge icon, Grohl went on to say that he "loved" Cornell, adding: "He was a really sweet guy".

"Even if it had been banjo, I think I probably would have showed up", he says.

For McCartney's part, the band asked him to play drums on a track to which the famed Beatle responded, "You're insane, man". "And, um... it didn't happen", Grohl said. "Because he's still playing for the same reasons we all started playing when we were young".
