And suffice it to say I didn't dream of Dave Grohl last night either. I dreamt I was renting out a room of my flat to a couple who were really nice, but then all of a sudden the dream took a turn for the vomitous when I realised I was in a relationship with an old fat man who looked like the security guy at work. And he was feeling frisky. I woke up to the sound of my phone running out of battery so had to get up to get the landline phone and set the alarm on that at 6am, after which I totes failed to get back to sleep
Re: Grohl.You really need to watch the documentary to get the full impact.Basically the whole thing is about how FF regularly implode because Grohl needs total control.
Anyway is he justified in wanting to put out what he feels is the product possible?Of course he is but it's still a band not a solo act and therefore some compromise basically goes with the territory.
Also why hire the guy if you don't think that he can do the job?
It's all Meg's fault.
In all fairness, Dave Grohl is the Foo Fighters.
Any other band member is completely interchangeable. It's Dave's ball and he can take it home whenever he likes, 'cus they can't play without him.
In fact, after Pat Smear left, it practically became a solo act again, just like it was when he started it up.
The rest of the members are non-charismatic, stock-musician fluff.
I think it remains a group only because a band premise is easier to sell than a male punk/rock solo act.
