Listen: Dave Grohl Collaborates With Mick Jagger on New Song “Eazy Sleazy”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Because Dave Grohl’s life is rarely anything less than extraordinary, Mick Jagger from The Rolling Stones (as opposed to Mick Jagger, DDS) wrote a song called “Eazy Sleazy” and then asked Grohl to contribute guitar, bass, and drums.

To reiterate: Grohl didn’t call Jagger. Jagger called Grohl. I mean, talk about #blessed!

Jagger tells Rolling Stone of the pandemic-themed track:

“I wrote the lyrics really quickly: Just the pandemic and hopefully coming out of the pandemic; the-light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel chorus. It sounded really good and I thought, ‘You gotta put it out now because it’s not gonna be any good in three or six months.’ I said, ‘I’d love to do it with someone really great and is working from home.’ I knew Dave and [Foo Fighters] just put out an album so I knew he got that out of the way. I phoned Dave up and said, ‘Dave, would you be interested?’ He said [puts on American accent], ‘Yeah, I’m really bored!’ ‘You just put an album out.’ ‘I’m really bored! I want to do it. I want to work!’ I said, ‘Fine, I’ll send you the song.’ It was all done quite quickly. Dave likes it ’cause it rocks hard. I like to rock hard, too, so it feels good in that way.”

You can check out “Eazy Sleazy” via the below music video. It’s good! I mean, it’s not great. It’s good in a latter-day-Rolling Stones kinda way. If you find 2005’s A Bigger Bang unbearable, maybe don’t listen to this.

Everyone else, enjoy:
