Dave Grohl Not A Fan Of Lazy Bands
Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl doesn’t like the idea of bands revisiting old albums on their anniversary… although has said he considered re-recording Foo Fighters’ debut album to “piss people off”.
“At one point I thought, ‘You know what would be really funny? To re-record the first Foo Fighters record as the band we are now’ – ‘cos the first record isn’t the Foo Fighters, it’s just me. So what if, for the 20th anniversary, we went in and re-recorded the first record – same songs, same arrangements, in sequence – but as the Foo Fighters 2014? (Drummer) Taylor was like, ‘Are you out of your fucking mind?! That’s the worst idea ever! People would fucking hate it!’ And Pat [Smear, guitar] said, ‘That’s exactly why we should do it!'”
Foo Fighters’ eighth album, ‘Sonic Highways’, will be released on November 10.
Guest musicians include: Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen!
Sonic Highways, the documentary detailing behind the scenes recording of the new Foo Fighters record is an 8 episode series.
The new Foo Fighters record is out November 10th.
