During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) was asked if he would ever consider writing a memoir. The frontman responded by saying he will “absolutely” write a book one day.
Grohl said the following:
“Oh absolutely. You know years ago I was at a barbecue and I met a book agent, and he said, “Have you ever considered writing a book?” and I said, “Well, of course, someday.” And he said, “It’s really easy — you’ll do four or five hours of interviews and someone else will write it in your voice and it will be great.” And I thought, “F— that!”
I come from a family of writers, and granted I’m a black sheep but I’m not that bad, my God. So I figured you know if I were to ever write a book, it would be in my hand. I’ve considered it for f—in’ years but A, I never had the time, and B, I never felt like I was ready because every day something happens that I’d love to write about, and I’d hate to write sort of a typical autobiography. So years ago I thought, “Well maybe it will just a collection of anecdotes — maybe instead of it just being my life in 300 pages it could be just funny stories.”
I mean listen, most rock musicians are great storytellers, this is true. Because most rock musicians have spent more than a few hours in the back lounge of a bus spinning yarns, swapping stories about all the different people they’ve gotten wasted with or jammed with. So there aren’t too many rock musicians that are short on great stories.”
With virtually everyone stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has decided to launch an Instagram account to share “true short stories that will make people smile.” His first post outlined his plans:
Awhile back, it was revealed that Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl would be guesting on the 50th anniversary season of “Sesame Street” and now footage of his appearance has been shared online. You can watch the frontman perform “Here We Go” with Big Bird and Elmo below:
Back in June, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons claimed that him and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) were both taking part in the new Queens Of The Stone Age album. However, Grohl has now denied his involvement during an interview with NME:
“I’m not on the new Queens record. You know what Josh and I have been doing together? Riding motorcycles and eating waffles. That’s it. Let me tell you, it’s a fun morning. We’ve done it more than a few times and it’s pretty fucking great. I wish I was on the new Queens album. I fucking love playing with Josh. He’s one of my best friends, but at the moment, it’s just motorcycles and waffles.”
During this year’s Ride For Ronnie concert in Glendale, CA, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl joined Ricky Warwick (Black Star Riders, Thin Lizzy), Keith Nelson (ex-Buckcherry), and Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) onstage for some covers of Motörhead‘s “Bomber” and Thin Lizzy‘s “Jailbreak.“ You can see footage of that below:

Good guy Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) is back at it again. As part of his Backbeat BBQ project, the frontman showed up at Fire Station 68 in Calabasas to barbecue for some of the firefighters that are working to control the deadly fires in California. The station thanked him via Instagram:

After the Foo Fighters played a surprise set as The Holy Shits in Los Angeles back in August, they went over to the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill for drinks. Dave Grohl ended up with a $333.30 bill and decided to jump on the opportunity to pay $666 by giving out a $333 tip. The frontman admitted he was too drunk to do the actual math, so he technically paid $666.30, but it’s still pretty funny nonetheless. Grohl told 955KLOS the following:
“When you get a bill that says $333, it’s like, I’m gonna go the extra mile. The sad thing was – I think it was $303.30, but I was too hammered to figure out the $302.70… I couldn’t do the real math. Which would have been strong but I was seeing double at that point.”
