Seventeen years ago, W. Axl Rose tried to get Nirvana to open on the Guns N Roses / Metallica tour. But Kurt Cobain wasn't having any of that, so he turned them down. It must have bummed out Dave Grohl, a longtime Metallica fan. He made amends years later, with his sort-of-fake open letter to Metallica, and he even interviewed Metallica for a syndicated radio show when Death Magnetic came out. Now, according to Slash's twitter, Grohl is playing on the guitar legend's upcoming solo album. I like it when everyone can get along. (I got the photo and story from Rolling Stone).
