Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl & Greg Kurstin Cover Mountain’s ‘Mississippi Queen’ For ‘Hanukkah Sessions’
The Hanukkah Sessions sees Grohl and Kurstin covering songs from famous Jewish artists for each night of Hanukkah, which runs through Friday, December 18. The duo kicked off the series with The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” on Thursday and followed with Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”
“Mississippi Queen” appears on Mountains 1970 debut album Climbing! The cover saw Grohl singing and playing drums — including a duct taped cup for the song’s iconic cow bell — with Kurstin on synthesizer and production elements. Read a note that accompanied the video below:
