Foo Fighters Unveil Tribute Album to Bee Gees

When pondering contrasting music genres, few pairings are as diverse as American rock and disco. Despite any aversion to disco (which remains a mystery to me), the undeniable influence and popularity of the Bee Gees during the 60s and 70s prompted the legendary American rock band, Foo Fighters, to pay homage with covers of Bee Gees hits for this year’s Record Store Day. In true Foo Fighters fashion, their dedication knows no bounds.

As part of the Record Store Day celebrations, Foo Fighters traded their guitars and denim for a temporary stint as the “Dee Gees,” a Bee Gees tribute band cleverly named after the band’s frontman, Dave Grohl. Their debut album, “Hail Satin,” is currently gracing record stores nationwide. Side A of the album showcases renditions of Bee Gees classics like “Night Fever,” “Tragedy,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “More Than a Woman,” and “Shadow Dancing.” Meanwhile, Side B features signature Foo Fighters tracks, including live recordings from their latest album, “Medicine at Midnight.”

This marks Foo Fighters’ second venture into Bee Gees covers, surprisingly. Earlier in February, they delivered a rendition of the Bee Gees’ “You Should Be Dancing” for Jo Whiley’s Sofa Session on BBC Radio 2. Leading up to this performance, the band immersed themselves in a Bee Gees documentary, engaging in discussions about their approach.

Reflecting on their decision, Grohl remarked, “I suggested, ‘Let’s perform a Bee Gees track,’ and someone responded, ‘How do you want to tackle this?’ I proposed, ‘Let’s do it like the Bee Gees.” He added that singing in that style was a first for him, describing it as “the most effortless singing experience of my life!”
