Dave Grohl & Wolfgang Van Halen

Watch Dave Grohl Prank The Audience With A Cover Of Van Halen’s “Eruption” Thanks To Wolfgang Van Halen


While an experienced musician in his own right, Foo Fighters vocalist/guitarist Dave Grohl is perhaps most renowned for his work behind a drum kit as a member of Nirvana and several other ventures. Thus, when Grohl busted out what appeared to be a cover of the finger dexterity taxing Van Halen hit “Eruption” at yesterday’s ‘Welcome To Rockville‘ festival in Daytona Beach, FL yesterday, May 11th, some eyebrows were probably raised.

Part hamming it up and, and part paying tribute to the legacy of the legendary Eddie Van Halen himself, Grohl had a surprise in the form of Eddie‘s son Wolfgang Van Halen for those watching the concert. You can watch that unfold below, complete with a partial cover of Van Halen‘s “Hot For Teacher“.
