After watching Studio 666, the new movie starring Foo Fighters, Eddie Vedder revealed he really loved a scene where Dave Grohl’s band mimics Pearl Jam’s iconic album cover art for Ten.
The famous cover art for Pearl Jam’s debut album Ten is referenced in a scene of the horror movie Studio 666 directed by BJ McDonnell and starring Foo Fighters. After watching it, Eddie Vedder texted Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins to tell him the scene was so funny that he is planning to recreate it with his friends.
Dave Grohl revealed this exchange in a recent interview the singer gave to Yahoo together with the Foo’s bassist Nate Mendel. During the same interview, a very amused Nate Mendel suggested that if they were ever to make a sequel of Studio 666, they should call Vedder to recreate that same scene.
During his recent concert in San Diego, Eddie Vedder mentioned the plot of Studio 666 .
Studio 666, directed by BJ McDonnell and scripted by Dave Grohl, Jeff Buhler and Rebecca Hughes was released on February 25th in the USA. The trailer of Studio 666, inspired by some cult horror movies like Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead and Tobe Hopper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is available below.
