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