AFTER Dave Grohl's much-publicised leg-break owing to an overambitious stage jump, leading to him completing the rest of a world tour in a self-designed "throne" chair, the Foo Fighters frontman had meant to take a year off from music to recuperate.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Grohl announced that pop star Justin Timberlake agreed to collaborate with the band on a new record after hanging out several times while they were resting in between the recording sessions for their separate albums at the EastWest studios in Los Angeles.

The Foo Fighters Arms will be functional from 15-20 September on 339 Cambridge Heath Road, and boasts a launch party, exclusive merchandise, limited edition items and a pub quiz.

"Foo Fighters are proud to announce the opening of the Foo Fighters Arms in London for one week only", a message on the pub's website reads.

Check out the band's announcement, with the caption "Keep Calm and Come On".

Plus, we talk to Foo Fighters and Nirvana producer Butch Vig about his new band 5 Billion In Dollars and his glittering production CV. It still blows my mind.

A Beatle even contributes to Sunday Rain, though why Paul McCartney was invited to play drums for a band already featuring two of the best drummers in the business - Grohl and Taylor Hawkins - is a bit of a head-scratcher. "I shouldn't have said anything, '" he also said. "He knows some good fucking doctors". You can watch the band's fairly faithful cover below.
