Dave Grohl has become the patron saint of everything rock oriented over the course of his illustrated career. Dave Grohl not only was the heartbeat of Nirvana, but he then went onto form Foo Fighters who will also join Nirvana in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in due time making Dave Grohl a double feature in the Hall Of Fame. Recently, Dave spoke out about the current state of rock music and he went on to talk about who he feels is next up for the rock culture.
Grohl stated: “There’s so many f*cking great bands out there that hopefully will start getting more attention, because I think the dial is starting to turn back to guitar-based music. And to me, it’s really exciting.”
Dave Grohl then went a bit deeper to state the young talent who he feels is next up: “If you want to see the true meaning of rock’n’roll, watch Nandi play the drums, that is as inspiring as any Beatles record, any Zeppelin record, any AC/DC record, any Stones record.”
Dave Grohl and Nandi Bushell took part in a virtual drum battle in November 2020 after setting one another musical challenges online during last year’s coronavirus lockdown. After this, Dave Grohl invited the young drummer to join Foo Fighters on stage in LA back in August, where she played drums with the band on their set-closer ‘Everlong’.
As stated above, Grohl feels music going back to the guitar and that’s very apparent in many new pop songs. With the likes of such acts over recent years as Machine Gun Kelly, JUICE WRLD, Lil Peep, and others; we have been seeing the dial turn more and more back to real guitar work thrown into popular music. In fact, one up and coming artist has blended a Nirvana sound into a hypnotic current sound as well to create a very refreshing take on the guitar. Give them a listen below to check it out.
