Looks like Dave Grohl has out-awesomed himself yet again!

He found time to sit in for Jimmy Kimmel on his late night show this past week. True to hilarious form and in the spirit of Halloween, he dressed as another famous Dave.

From tidying up Jimmy’s office in traditional rock star fashion,..

,…to his monologue,..

,…and trying out his interviewing skills with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper,…

,…I say it was a success and a likely a ratings winner. Thoughts?

I had “Clockwork Angels” by Rush in my truck recently when it dawned on me that the Holy Triumvirate were able to do what not many rock bands were able to do,… call it a career with a memorably awesome album.

Sadly, the majority of swan song rock albums often pale in comparison to a band’s best works (Zeppelin, Genesis, The Who anyone?). But there are notable exceptions. Among them are below:

Rush with the aforementioned ”Clockwork Angels”,…

,…”The Battle of Los Angeles” by Rage against the Machine,…
