Last quote by Dave Grohl

There would be times when we would really connect – smile and laugh and feel like a band. And there were times when you felt lost and questioned what you were doing there. There were times when I had to back off completely and think, I'm just the drummer in this band.' And there were other times when we'd all share something really beautiful, like a show or recording or just a vocal harmony. That's when you really felt like you were part of something great.feedback

Dave Grohl has most recently been quoted in an article called Dave Grohl Plays First Gig With Nirvana in 1990. Dave Grohl said, “Kurt was kind of a drummer himself. When he would play guitar or write songs, if you ever looked at his jaw, he would be moving his jaw back and forth, like he was playing the drums with his teeth. He heard in his head what he wanted from a rhythm, and that's a hard thing to articulate. I think one of the reasons they wanted me was that I sang backup vocals. I don't remember them saying, You're in the band.' We just continued.”. Dave Grohl has been quoted a grand total of 56 times in 20 articles.

Sep 06 2017

I'm not an outwardly political person. But it's pretty easy to figure out where I fall on the map. Oh, crap. Well, we're just running dumb errands. We'll swing by.feedback

Sep 06 2017

It used to be all orange groves around here. And 80 or 90 years ago, it's where a lot of Hollywood actors had weekend homes.feedback

Sep 06 2017

When you put us in a room, it sounds like the band. So the challenge is to figure out how that evolves. Actually, the studio where we made the new record is right down the street. We can stop by if you want. We mixed Nirvana Unplugged in here, ages ago. The Pet Sounds room. Isn't that nuts? We'd drink whiskey in the parking lot. He was really, really cool. Then the night before his last day, he says, Can I sing on your record? I don't want to push it, but – I just want to be able to tell my friends.' . He nailed it. I'm telling you – the guy's going somewhere.feedback

Sep 06 2017

He was so fucking good. We played for an hour, then took a break and had bagels and tea. I thought we were done – I didn't want to rag him out – so I was out having a cig, and someone goes, Hey, Paul wants to jam some more.' He rounded everybody up, and we jammed for hours: 'Let's write some songs, man!feedback

It's inspiring, because he's still playing for the same reasons we all started playing when we were young. He just wants to jam.feedback

We've done some crazy things over the last 20 years, but I think this might be the craziest thing the Foo Fighters have ever done.feedback

Jul 27 2017

There's nothing more ridiculous than having a record-release party with 50,000 people instead of doing it at some bar down the street. Let's just have it with a bunch of rowdy friends.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I was in physical therapy for two or three hours a day for almost a year.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I barbecued for fucking months, man, . I was doing eight briskets a week. It got a little dark. I was in physical therapy for two or three hours a day for almost a year. I don't think I was inspired at first. I just felt like I was creatively atrophied and had to start to exercise in order to wake the muscle up. After maybe 12 or 13 ideas, I send them to the guys and ask, Am I crazy? Or is this a record?' They say, Both.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I figured, OK, I can take care of the heavy part. If he could do that Bird and the Bee thing over these massive riffs, then we will have made the album that I have always wanted to make, because of the love of Seventies AM gold radio and the love of a band like Motörhead.feedback

Jul 27 2017

I brought a case of wine and sat there in my underwear with a microphone for about five days, just writing. It happened at the perfect time. I was inspired by what was going on with our country – politically, personally, as a father, an American and a musician. There was a lot to write about. I was so in love with the Bird and the Bee because of their sense of melody, harmony, arrangement and composition. It was clear that whoever was behind this music was not your everyday Guitar Center schmo.feedback

Jul 27 2017

Neither Adele nor Taylor Swift sang on the record.feedback

Jul 17 2017

Interesting … and weird. I kind of remember that now.feedback

I think maybe Greg is the guy that we ask to be our producer because he's never made a heavy rock record before and we've never worked with a pop producer.feedback

May 29 2017

It was as if all of our punk-rock and classic-rock dreams came true together. Everybody, whether it was in Washington, D.C., or Washington state, looked up to Soundgarden as this force of nature.feedback

May 29 2017

There was a bunch of the Seattle gang there, and Chris just seemed so quiet and mellow compared to the rest of the maniacs.feedback

May 20 2017

We went with Gil because on all of his albums he manages to get some sort of clarity, even in the dirtiest sound. But the biggest reason we hired him was because of the arrangements on the last Pixies album, Trompe Le Monde. They're all so bizarre, and he let me in on how they did a lot of them. Some of them are mathematical, like the first half of a song would mirror the second half, and stuff like that. And he just seemed like such a character.feedback

May 20 2017

We had known for almost four months that Pat was going to leave the band. He told us early on this year that he didn't want to tour anymore and he doesn't like doing press and he hates flying, tons of stuff. Of course we were totally shocked. Then I remembered, when Pat joined Nirvana, all of his friends were placing bets on how long he was going to last in that band. Some friends bet a week, or a month, or two months. This is the longest he's stayed in a band since the Germs.feedback

May 20 2017

It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Because if we wanted to give the album a name that referred to the mood or the attitude of the record, then it would be called 'My Therapist's Couch' or something.feedback

May 20 2017 - Christmas

We took a break for Christmas, so I went back to Virginia by myself. I took the rough tracks of what we'd done and it didn't seem right. The album had something missing. But I had this one riff that I originally thought was a Sonic Youth rip-off, but I decided it might be good to turn it into a song. When I brought it to our producer Gil Norton, he said, That's great! Let's put it on the album!feedback

May 20 2017

The first album was recorded in about five days. I really didn't pay much attention to the production or the arrangements. It was just 'Get in the studio and get it done.' But for this album we did pre-production, we hired a producer and we wanted there to be unconventional arrangements. We just wanted to go in and make kind of a slick rock record, and I think that we did. They're about last winter, the winter of my discontent.feedback

May 20 2017

In Europe and in England, when bands play, the audience doesn't beat the shit out of each other like they do in America; they do this bounce, right? Everybody bounces.feedback

May 20 2017

He wouldn't let me have dinner until I'd written some lyrics. Every time I wrote a bad line I'd get 40 lashes.feedback

May 20 2017

The title is kind of like an inside joke that we have with the band. When we were on tour, our tour manager was always out shopping every day before the show and buying really weird stuff. He'd come back with these really huge candles from 1947 and the next day he came back with a lamp with Jesus on it. ... So one day he comes into the dressing room with this bowling pin, a red one with white stripes, and he said, Look what I bought today.' I said, What the fuck are you doing? Why would you buy a bowling pin?' – 'Because I like the color and I like the shape.feedback

May 16 2017

I figured on the way up here, I thought we would play a new song. We've never played this before to anybody. The sky is a neighborhood, don't make a sound.feedback

The guy kept telling us how many million records he's sold.feedback

I was in the top 10 rock 'n' roll artists – up there with Sid Vicious. I always had that edge. But I was really young. I'm 28 now, and I've got kids.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I was really happy with it, if I'm honest. I've been kicked out of a few parties, but it's fun when you get kicked out. Being told to leave is great. Get out, you're too p-----. Wicked.feedback

Apr 04 2017

The Amy Winehouse story hits close to home because there are some parallels between Amy and Kurt [Cobain]. She understands there are some kids who work outside of conventional systems.feedback

Mar 02 2017

There's something about [Lorde] that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic. She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist.feedback
