Dave Grohl, like many musicians of the past 20 years, has a story about David Bowie declining to collaborate.
Grohl tells the U.K. version of GQ that he had a Foo Fighters track that he thought "was the coolest thing ever. We tried it, kind of worked on it, then I actually contacted Bowie about doing it together for this movie soundtrack -- that didn’t work out. He didn’t like the movie. It wasn’t me, it was the movie."
But unlike many of those rejected Bowie collaborations, this song will eventually see the light of day. Grohl says, "I started working on it again, and I then gave it to another band, who hasn’t used it yet." He wouldn't reveal which band has the song, saying that he doesn't want to "spoil the surprise."
