Grohl attempted to bring the two acts together on a track for "Sound City,"
his documentary about the California music studio where his former band Nirvana
recorded their landmark album "Nevermind."
"I was this f--king close to getting them on a record," he said. "I thought
it was going to happen, it would've been f--king huge." Manilow agreed to take
part, but Grohl admits the singer was hard to find, adding, "He was the first
person who said he'd do it, but was the last we tracked down. And we had to fly
to f--king Hawaii."
