We now know who will sit behind the kit for Foo Fighters during their 2023 tour.

During their livestream event this afternoon, Dave Grohl and company had a little fun with the announcement by having Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), and Danny Carey (Tool) stop by their rehearsal space before Josh Freese asked his fellow band members if they could just play a few songs.

Freese was widely rumored to be the band’s new live drummer after he dropped out of previous projects. Over the years, Freese has drummed for a who’s who in the rock world, including Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, and The Offspring, among many, many others.

Freese will make his live debut with the band later this week in New Hampshire before headlining Boston Calling on May 26th.
