Dave Grohl, who is in the process of recording the new Them Crooked Vultures album, was recently asked what the new album sounds like. This was his response:
“When people ask what it sounds like, it sounds like Josh singing and playing guitar, it sounds like me playing the drums, it sounds like John Paul Jones playing bass. But the way it was recorded…it sounds cool. I don’t know how to explain it. There’s sounds that you’ve probably never really heard before.”
Sounds that I’ve probably never really heard before? What sort of magical noises are they coming up with? Maybe they’ve discovered a real life leprechaun and recorded it singing Monkey Wrench. Or perhaps, they captured Sasquatch and recorded its guttural language. I can’t wait to hear these sounds. How exciting!
Seriously, with Josh Homme in the band, you never know what you’re going to hear. I was listening to an Eagles of Death Metal album today (which he is part of) and there are some really interesting things going on. Things that make you say, “You know, I’ve probably never really heard that before…” :)
Have a good one!!!
I’ve been a big fan of Dave Grohl’s music for a long time. But what I realized is that I don’t know all that much about him as a person, like what his story is. It’s all very sketchy: he was part of the Washington D.C. hardcore scene, he was in a band called Scream, he became the drummer for Nirvana, he grew up in Virginia, etc. I just have these bits and pieces of facts from his life. So I decided to get a biography. From Amazon, “The Dave Grohl Story” seemed to get a lot of good reviews, so that’s the one I purchased.
It came in the mail and I’ve just started reading the first chapter. I have a pet peeve about biographies. The author ends up doing a lot of research and then feels like they should include everything. This author is no exception. He’s telling me about Dave Grohl’s parents and his grandparents. He’s telling me what’s going on in 1969, the year Dave Grohl is born. He’s telling me all about Warren, Ohio, the town where Dave Grohl was born. Like all about it. Why am I reading about dates during the Civil War? This isn’t the Dave Grohl story, it’s the Warren, Ohio story.
I hate Dave Grohl’s biography.
Please see the following video. Be forewarned that it contains alarming footage of Dave under the influence of addictive chemicals. Parent/Work warning: there is adult language near the end.
In a recent interview my nemesis, Dave Grohl, proved Reason #8
of why I hate him, which is that he is the stand up comedian of rock. When asked who should play him in an upcoming Kurt Cobain biopic, he said Shelley Duvall. Funny guy. I hate Dave Grohl.
What do you think?
Do you think Shelley Duval should play Dave Grohl?
