Dave Grohl Admits Foo Fighters Isn’t “Cool”
Foo Fighters are without a doubt one of the biggest rock bands of the past twenty years andDuring a recent chat with host Whitney Cummings on the “Good for You” podcast, frontman and guitarist Dave Grohl admitted his band isn’t “Cool”, but he’s okay with it. He would say
“We’re not cool,” said Grohl, later saying, “I think that the reason why we’re still here is because we do kind of disconnect ourselves from the popular stuff that’s going on, but also because, what the fuck do we care? Like honestly, I just want to fucking play music.”
The singer admitted he’s a “dad rock” band….. “You know the whole dad rock thing? We’re totally so dad rock,” said Grohl, who later added, “First of all, we are all dads, and you’re right, we’re a rock band… Look, I’m 50 years old, I have fucking grey hair. I don’t need validation, but I have never considered our band cool and I like that.”
Drummer Taylor Hawkins revealed to Loudwire, “We’re in such the fetal stages at this point, it’s hard to say what the direction of that thing would be, but we’re definitely chugging along and Dave [Grohl]’s certainly got a lot of fucking ideas, that’s all I can say,” before going on to call Grohl a “fucking creative god.”
“He never stops, and he’s just got such conviction and faith in whatever he is working on. There’s never any second guessing with Dave, and I really respect that about him,” added Hawkins.
