High praise from the Foo Fighters frontman.

Dave Grohl has been raving about former Oasis star Liam Gallagher.

Grohl teamed up with Gallagher for Liam's latest single, 'Everything's Electric'.

The iconic pair co-wrote the tune, and Grohl also played drums on the track.

However, the collaboration was all done remotely.

Grohl NME magazine: “Unfortunately we didn’t do it in person but I love being in the same room as Liam.

“It’s like putting a f****** quarter in a jukebox and just turning it up with that guy.

He enthused: "It’s f******great. Obviously, he’s an amazing singer and he’s a f****** rock star. He is one of the few last remaining rock stars.

That's high praise from the man who was in Nirvana and now fronts one of the world's most popular rock bands.

Dave continued: “He was making a song [‘Everything’s Electric’] with the producer Greg Kurstin and they needed a beat which I think was described as something ‘Sabotage’-esque [Beastie Boys] and so I served it up."

He joked: "I served up the beats, and the single turned out great. I love that song I honestly do. I was dancing to it the other night.”

Foo Fighters have been keeping busy with their new comedy-horror film, STUDIO 666.

He said there are no current plans for new music.

Grohl advised: “Not at the moment. We’ve been too wrapped up being movie stars to write rock songs."

The band are excited to be getting back on the road again.

Dave said: “We’re gonna be bouncing around the planet for the next 10 months. When everything shut down in 2020 [because of COVID], I think we all felt the sting that we’d been on the road pretty much our entire career.

"But when it was taken away from us, everyone wanted it back even more and we begged for a tour. We begged for shows and then we got this itinerary through and I was like: ‘Oh my god what were we thinking? Holy s***that’s a lot of shows!’

"I think there’s 70 or more coming up. But hallelujah brother I can’t wait.”

He recently joined James Corden on his show, and failed to recognise any of his songs that James "attempted" to play.
