Famous Alaska: The Last Frontier daughter, Jewel, is back in the spotlight today reminiscing on her time with the Foo Fighters. She tells the story of how Dave Grohl, legendary Nirvana drummer and founder of the Foo Fighters, asked her to sing with them. Jewel posted a video on her Twitter page singing alongside the band.
That time I sang Whole Lotta Love with the @foofighters
Alan Bershaw sent this to me this morning because he synched high quality stereo sound to a fan video – check it out

Jewel also posted a longer version on her Instagram page. Jewel tells fans the story of how she and Dave Grohl decided to sing Whole Lotta Love in Phoenix, Arizona.
“Dave and I both happened to be in Pheonix the same night – and he asked me to do a song that evening …. I wracked my brain and finally @cwhitey6 and @nimblephatty suggested the Zeppelin classic. I had never sung it. We had no sound check and no rehearsal, so I had to walk out cold and do my best. I knew doing such an iconic tune would be a huge risk … but I do like risks … I did make lots of mistakes – I missed my entrance in the second verse, but they came back around for me …and I was reading lyrics off the floor and off my hand … but man, when you have a chance to rock, you take it! Hope we made @jimmypage and @robertplantofficial proud.”
