Paul McCartney is planning to make a heavy rock album, and he’s asked Dave Grohl for tips on how to ago about it.

The ex-Beatle is attracted to the notion of recording in a garage, like the Foo Fighters did with their current album “Wasting Light.”

He told Rolling Stone: “A heavier rock album sounds quite wacky, but it keeps it fresh. I love what Dave did. I love that you get a crazy idea and go with it. You never know, I may run into a garage and make this album. But it won’t be in Dave’s garage.”

Check out the Foo Fighters at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama yesterday with Cee-Lo Green on Prince’s “Darling Nikki”:

The Foo Fighters will perform on June 5 at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards rocking their new single, “Walk.”

It’s the first appearance at the Movie Awards by the Foos since 2005. The 2011 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by actor/comedian Jason Sudeikis and will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
