Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) Launches Instagram Account To Share “True Short Stories That Will Make People Smile”

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:

Foo Fighters Finish New Album

Foo Fighters have officially finished their new album. Dave Grohl confirmed the news during an appearance on the Bill Simmons Podcast.

Grohl said the following:

“We just finished making a record. Some of those songs, the best ones happen in 45 minutes. Then there’s other songs — there’s a riff on the new record I’ve been working on for 25 years. The first time I demoed it was in my basement in Seattle.”

In other news, the frontman also revealed that he is working on a documentary about touring in a van:

“I’ve interviewed everybody… The Beatles toured in a van, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, U2, everybody has had a van. There’s something about that time, you wear it like a badge. The movie isn’t so much about really awesome van tour anecdotes, it’s more about the drive to do it.”

“Why would anyone give up everything, quit their job, leave everything behind, just to chase this dream with no guarantee you’re ever going to make it? And you starve, you bleed, you’re sick, you’re pissed, you get taken to jail and in fights, but you always make it to the next gig. Everyone has the same story, and it’s absolutely the key to success.”
