Foo Fighters have revealed that they accidentally ended up collaborating with producer Nick Raskulinecz on their One By One album. In an interview with Apple Music Zane Lowe, drummer Taylor Hawkins said, “Dave [Grohl] accidentally called the wrong Nick. Nick Raskulinecz showed up and that guy who produced it and he just was a great cheerleader for us, you know? And, he really was enthusiastic about us.”

Grohl added, “I meant to call Nick Oliveri, who was the bass player of Queens of the Stone Age and my friend Nick Raskulinecz answered. I knew him from Sound City, he’s a great engineer. He had worked at that studio for years.”

When asked if Dave dodged admitting he called the wrong person and instead asked him to come down to make a a record, he responded, “Exactly, yes. That’s exactly what happened.”

Hawkins added, “Yeah. And, he’s gone on to become a legendary big time producer.”
