Dave Grohl, Lars Gunblade

The much-anticipated Dave Grohl-Lars Gunblade Christmas CD collaboration isn’t happening, says Ass Clowns manager Jerry Gold. The two rock stars, who have long despised each other, were at Gunblade’s recording studio last week working on Christmas songs. Unfortunately, the partnership fell apart after laying down tracks for just two songs.

“These guys shouldn’t be in the same room together, let alone try to record an album,” said Mr. Gold. “This is unfortunate. I was counting on the sales from this CD to fatten out my Cayman Island accounts. And it’s mostly Lars’ fault as far as I’m concerned!”

“I had just finished a killer vocal for ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’ but Lars insisted on double-tracking it,” said Dave Grohl over the phone. “To me, that felt wrong. Gunblade wanted to over-produce the thing because he’s such a hack.”

“I’m sad. Dave Grohl did his usual Dave Grohl thing and ruined everything,” said Lars Gunblade during a press conference aboard the band’s tour blimp. “Worst of all, he refused to record ‘It’s a Blue Sky Christmas.’ I was angry because it would have been a great song that tweakers everywhere would have enjoyed. Now, it’s never going to happen.”


  1. Ed Exley says:

    I just downloaded a rough demo that Dave and Lars did of “Santa Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” It’s not what I thought it would be. Seriously, they did a note-for-note copy of the original song with hillbilly accents and everything. It’s not good. No one should ever hear this–EVER.

  2. Ian says:

    Just as well – my ears still hurt from the last time I heard them. If I noticed someone was playing such a bootleg at their Christmas party, I might not run from the room, but I’d certainly edge closer to the door.

    • B. Robinson says:

      This is so typical of the hate this band has had to endure over the years. Look, just because they’re a terrible band doesn’t mean that they aren’t great!

  3. Walter S. says:

    I certainly hope a bootleg of those songs comes out soon. The whole project sounds incredible and I’m sure it would have been the best Christmas CD ever made.

  4. Not Lew Flapp says:

    This would have been a great CD and I would have gladly paid hundreds of dollars to have it.
