Foo Fighters Premiere New Song “Waiting On A War”

Foo Fighters have premiered a new song titled “Waiting On A War.” This track is from the band’s new album “Medicine At Midnight,” which will be released on February 5.

Dave Grohl commented:

“As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington DC, I was always afraid of war. I had nightmares of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political tension of the early 1980’s and my proximity to the Nation’s Capitol. My youth was spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future.

Last fall, as I was driving my 11 year old daughter to school, she turned to me and asked, “Daddy, is there going to be a war?” My heart sank in my chest as I looked into her innocent eyes, because I realized that she was now living under that same dark cloud of a hopeless future that I had felt 40 years ago.

I wrote “Waiting On a War” that day.

Everyday waiting for the sky to fall. Is there more to this than that? Is there more to this than just waiting on a war? Because I need more. We all do.

This song was written for my daughter, Harper, who deserves a future, just as every child does.

Dave”

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl Thanks Supporters Of The Save Our Stages Act

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has shared a thank you letter that he wrote for the supporters of the Save Our Stages Act. The initiative recently passed as part of the $900 billion stimulus deal, which includes “$15 billion in dedicated funding for live venues, independent movie theaters, and cultural institutions.”

Grohl said the following:

“A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the Save Our Stages Act, which passed yesterday as a part of the economic stimulus bill.

The preservation of America’s smaller, independent venues is not only crucial to the millions of concert goers whose lives are bettered by experiencing their favorite artists in the flesh, but to the future of music itself, as it gives the next generation of young musicians a place to cut their teeth, hone their craft, and grow into the voices of tomorrow.

The absence of live music this year has left us all longing for that communal feeling of connection, one that is best felt when joined in a song. The Save Our Stages Act brings us one step closer to sharing that feeling again, one that I hope we can all experience again very soon. Everyday we’re one step closer.

See you there, Dave”.

Watch Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) And Greg Kurstin Cover The Velvet Underground’s “Rock And Roll”

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and Greg Kurstin have shared a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Rock And Roll” as part of their “Hanukkah Sessions.” You can check that out below:

Grohl commented:

“As 2020 comes to a close and another Hanukkah ends (my first!) I am reminded of the two things that have gotten me through this year: music and hope.

This project, which initially began as a silly idea, grew to represent something much more important to me. It showed me that the simple gesture of spreading joy and happiness goes a long way, and as we look forward, we should all make an effort to do so, no matter how many candles are left to light on the menorah.

Toda Raba to Greg for being a musical genius and spending 2 1/2 days barnstorming through these songs together. You never fail to amaze me. Big round of applause for Markus Rutledge, the poor soul that had only 24 hours (8 days in a row) to churn out each of these videos for us! You deserve a medal for sleep deprivation! Huge hearts for the force of nature known as Peaches! You brought the real. And, of course to all of you for joining in on the fun. I hope that you enjoyed watching.

So, sing along one last time to “Rock and Roll” by The Velvet Underground, a song about music and hope, and let’s keep spreading the joy and happiness. It goes a long way…..

Dave”

Metallica, Foo Fighters, And Red Hot Chili Peppers Members To Be Featured On New Ozzy Osbourne Album

It was previously revealed that Ozzy Osbourne was already working on a follow-up to “Ordinary Man” and now we have some more details on the effort. According to producer Andrew Watt, the album is “about halfway” done and it will feature contributions from Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers).

Watt told Guitar World the following:

“We’re about halfway through. But, you know, it’s been hard with COVID and everything to keep him safe. We all test every day before we work and it’s just me, Ozzy and my engineer. So it’s taken a little longer this time, but it’s cool because the last one was made in this, like, swift love affair of passion, like, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible!’ [laughs]

But this time everyone’s moving a little slower and we’re taking a little more time. And the songs, there’s some songs on there that are like eight or nine minutes long that are these really crazy journeys. I’m really excited about it.”

He also had the following to say about the various guests:

“There’s a bunch of people involved. I can’t say for sure until the end, but I started doing a bunch of basic tracks with Chad and Robert Trujillo, who used to play in Ozzy‘s band. And Taylor Hawkins also came in and played a bunch on the record as well, which adds a different flair – it kind of harkened back to Ozzy‘s ‘80s era, in a great way. And I think it’s so cool for a rock fan to be able to listen to half an album with Chad Smith on drums, and then you flip it over and you get to hear Taylor Hawkins.

And you know, the last album was really special for everyone involved. And so there was no point in Ozzy or me doing this again unless we thought we could bring something new to the table. And I feel like we’re achieving that.”

He also added the following when asked about the sound of the record:

“Well, we’re just halfway through, so it could still change. Some of these songs we have could wind up not even making the album. So I can’t really say yet. But in the end it’s all Ozzy’s decision. When he tells me we’ve got the album, that’s when I’ll stop.”
