Foo Fighters discuss Sound City
Foo Fighters discuss Sound City

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been discussing the bands forthcoming documentary Sound City, which celebrates the iconic Los Angeles Sound City Studios and many of the great artists that have recorded there. Dave claims that Foo Fighters could in fact release a Sound City album to be released which would accompany the upcoming documentary.

Grohl explained, “We released a teaser trailer… there may be an album that accompanies [it]. I recorded a lot of songs with a lot of people in the past couple months. There used to be a recording studio called Sound City that was in the San Fernando Valley. Nirvana recorded there in 1991. It was this really beautiful dump in the middle of a warehouse district. A lot of great records were made there.”
 
Foo Fighters recently admitted that they were looking to record their next album in space. Dave Grohl added, “We have an idea. It’s kind of a really big idea. We’re going to record it in space. To tape. An analogue moonshot.” Foo Fighters were recently one of the big winners at the 2012 Grammy Awards, walking away with five Grammy’s.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has revealed how The Beatles have had a huge impact on his career, as he learnt everything he knows from listening to The Beatles records. Dave claims that he never had a teacher to teach him how to play his instruments, so he turned to a Beatles songbook for guidance and continued to use The Beatles to help him improve, even in his Nirvana days.

Grohl explained, “When I was young, that’s how I learned how to play music - I had a guitar and a Beatles songbook. I would listen to the records and play along. Of course, it didn’t sound like The Beatles, but it got me to understand song structure and melody and harmony and arrangement.”
 
He added, I never had a teacher, I just had these Beatles records. Even in Nirvana, the Beatles [were] such a huge influence. Kurt loved The Beatles because it was just so simple. Well, it seemed simple, they sound easy to play, but you know what? They’re f*cking hard.” Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters were celebrating last night, after winning five Grammy Awards at last nights event.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has revealed how the band are honoured to have won the Best Rock Album Grammy Award for their record Wasting Light, as the album is very special to the band. Dave revealed how Foo Fighters recorded the whole of Wasting Light from a garage and, although it is not a perfect album, it does give a human side to their record.

Grohl explained, “This is a great honour because this record was a special record for our band. We made this one in our garage. To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of making music is what’s most important.” Dave continued by adding, “It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about sounding absolutely correct.”
 
The Foo Fighters won an impressive five Grammy Awards including Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance. The band were only outdone by Adele, who equalled the record for the amount of Grammy’s won by a female solo artist in one night, which is six and was previously won by Beyoncé back in 2010.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl became a bouncer during his gig at London’s Roundhouse on Tuesday (July 12) night. A fight broke out between some fans in the moshpit and Dave Grohl took it upon himself to eject the unruly fan, responsible for causing the ruckus.
 
Dave stopped to inform the fan, You don’t f***ing fight at my show you asshole. Let me see him, who’s fighting right now? It’s that guy in the striped shirt. Hey mother***er look at me, get the f*** out of my show right now.” And the fan left with his tail between his legs.
 
Grohl added, “I don’t put up with that bullsh*t - you people came here to have a good time and that guy can f*** off”. The crowd responded with a euphoric applause. Word of warning, if you attend a Foo Fighters gig any time soon, be sure not to get rowdy in the moshpit or Dave Grohl will get you.
