What a great way to honor a friend!
While sharing memories is a wonderful way to remember a friend, getting some new ink is a lot more permanent — which is exactly what Foo Fighter's rocker Dave Grohl did!
Grohl was recently snapped with some new ink (above) on his left arm — Mötorhead's iconic Ace of Spades logo — honoring his late friend with whom he collaborated with on Lemmy's side project Probot.
What do you think of Grohl's awesome new tattoo?!

JGL is no stranger to Jim Henson's creations — he's set to star and produce in the upcoming Fraggle Rock movie!
But the actor isn't the only star who will grace his presence on the December 1 episode of the ABC comedy!
Dave Grohl will also play himself in the episode, and will be challenging Animal to an old school drum off!

Titled "Going, Going, Gonzo," the episode will also mark the Muppets revival debut of the Great Gonzo — Gonzo's adrenaline seeking alter ego!

This… doesn't make much sense to us.
Well, it turns out that Dave Grohl & Co. were uninvited from playing the awards show because they wanted to perform music from their HBO special Sonic Highways.
Apparently, the Academy had no problem with the band playing songs from the limited series — since it literally won awards and all — but FOX took issue with the Fighters not wanting to play their other song Learn to Fly.
After Dave refused to agree to the unrelated set list, he and his bandmates were promptly banned from performing and then refused to attend the event at all!
What do U think about FOX's crazy decision to cancel the Foo Fighter's performance??

We wouldn't be happy either!
What could have made the night better?!
Well actually, now that we think of it, a Foo Fighters performance would have been pretty epic — and we almost had it too, according to Dave Grohl!
He spoke about the alleged cancellation saying:
And thanks to his surgeon, Dr. Lew Schon, the rocker is on the road to recovery. The Foo Fighters frontman decided to repay the good doctor by giving him his fifteen minutes of fame.
Well, technically four minutes, but you know what we mean!
The 46-year-old invited his orthopedic surgeon on stage during his Boston concert on Sunday night to perform Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.
The craziest part? Dr. Schon sang the entire song all on his own, and he actually kicked butt! Who would've thought??
Dave sure seemed to be caught off guard, because after Dr. Schon left the stage, the singer exclaimed to the crowd:
"Holy sh*t, that's actually my doctor. What a badass."
Ch-ch-check out the doc's performance (below)!
