Scenestr.com.au have a new interview up with LIVE frontman Ed Kowalczyk. He discussed Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl fanboying out watching one of their big reunion performances.
“So, so many awesome festival moments from last year.
A highlight was watching Dave Grohl from the side of the stage at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans jamming to the show with a huge grin on his face. I hadn’t seen him in years, and it was awesome to see someone I respect so much catching the new, reunited +LIVE+ happy bug.”
He also discussed seeing U2 shortly before the band’s reunion.
“Wow, that’s a tough one. Every situation is totally different obviously and I wouldn’t want to presume that I have any answers to give; honestly, we are as surprised as anyone that we got back together.
I went to see U2 on tour about a year before we worked things out and Bono started riffing between songs about people who have been together for a long time (i.e. marriages and bands) staying together… he said something like ‘I know it’s hard sometimes, but it’s so important to stay together’.
I felt like he was speaking directly to me about our band… and low and behold here we are. From where I am standing now, I couldn’t agree more with the crooning Irishman.”
