Courtney Love Tells Dave Grohl ‘Don’t Change Foo Fighters Sound’


Courtney Love revealed in a new interview with Dazed that she recently talked to Dave Grohl about Foo Fighters’ sound, and told him that he doesn’t need to change his sound musically.

“There’s maybe 30 (female stars) if you count pop stars. Think about that, on the planet. Rockstars, I don’t know, I’ve never really sat down and counted female rock stars. There’s a few, there’s 10… 15… but throw a TV out on the balcony, the same stuff that Keith Richards did, the same stuff Jim Morrison did, the same things that Bono did – that we all forgot about – yeah, I think I get judged by a double standard a lot, but that’s just the way it is.

I talked to Dave Grohl about this, this month, that he doesn’t have to change his sound, and I kinda do. After hearing the latest PJ Harvey record I’m like ‘god, this woman never stops evolving, she’s so amazing and fantastical’, but at the same time I want to sound commercial, but not too commercial because no one is going to buy that from me and I can’t deliver that. So, I think with women, unless you are autonomous, unless you can play that piano, play that guitar, unless you really learn to do it yourself, (then) you’re interdependent and if you’re going to be interdependent, do it with people you trust and who can last the long haul with you.”
