Soundgarden gets badass in Grohl-directed "By Crooked Steps" video
As if he's on a mission to prove that there's nothing he can't do, unstoppable force of nature Dave Grohl has turned his attention to directing these days. There's his new documentary, Sound City, of course, but Grohl was also behind the camera for the new video by his fellow grunge survivors in Soundgarden.
In the clip for "By Crooked Steps" (a song from Soundgarden's comeback album King Animal), the guys in the band show that they haven't lost their edge. They engage in such jackanapes as forcing a laptop jockey to go "unplugged", commandeering the stage at Paladinos, and booting around town on the most badass wheels ever created, namely the Segway.
As for Soundgarden, you can catch those crusty old bastards (I kid!) at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on February 10. And if you don't believe me, here's a listing that proves it.
