Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl To Record A 25-Minute Instrumental Song

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) is apparently planning to record a 25-minute instrumental song. He told Madison.com the following about that:

“I have a studio, EastWest in LA, where I’m going to set up an expanse of instruments. Several drum kits, a load of guitars, bass, rhythm and lead. I’ll hit play and the clock will start ticking. I will record the first drum part, then I will run to the next drum set and play another drum part that will record over the first. Then I will do the same with all the guitars, all assigned to a different moment in the instrumental… The best part is we’ll film everything with multiple cameras so by the end of it you will see and hear one song being played for 25 minutes, with six different Dave Grohls playing every note, on every single instrument, all the way through in one take.”

He also added: “The worst part is, and that’s why I’ve had about four hours sleep every night on this tour, I have to write and then memorise all the music for this thing, for all the instruments, before I get back to LA in two weeks.” He later continued: “If I want to write a 25-minute instrumental, write all the music, play all the instruments, film it and then, guess what, maybe never even release it? I’ll do it. Just because I can.”
