Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin are adding some hops to their Hanukkah Sessions celebration for night four with a cover of Van Halen‘s “Jump.”
The performance pays tribute to VH vocalist David Lee Roth, who is Jewish.
“Quite possibly the loudest and proudest of hard rocking Jews, David Lee Roth has gone on record crediting his Bar Mitzvah preparation as his earliest vocal training,” Grohl says. “He became a rockstar the day he became a man.”
You can watch the “Jump” cover streaming now on YouTube. Be sure to stick around for Kurstin’s ripping keytar solo.
Grohl and Kurstin launched The Hanukkah Sessions in 2020 with covers of eight different Jewish artists for each night of the holiday. This year’s series has so far included Lisa Loeb‘s “Stay (I Missed You),” Ramones‘ “Blitzkrieg Bop” and Barry Manilow‘s “Copacabana.”
