Dave Grohl, the iconic frontman of the Foo Fighters was a guest DJ on the BBC Sounds program: “Radio 2 Beatles”. Where he paid tribute to the fab four as only he could. This Dave Grohl surprising teen girlfriend was recently revealed.
Here, Grohl discusses how he wrote a song note only in honor and tribute for late The Beatles member George Harrison, a track that would appear off of The Foo Fighters debut record called “Oh, George” but mainly written so that Grohl could have a track that had a George Harrison-like sounding guitar solo. Foo Fighters dropped this Dave Grohl quitting bombshell recently. Also, Grohl tells a heart-warming story about how “Something”, The Beatles’ classic 1969 hit was the first solo he ever learned. Grohl’s comments have been transcribed below:
Dave Grohl: Hi everybody this is Dave Grohl and I’m playing some of my favorite songs by The Beatles of all time. I would like the play by the favorite song by George Harrison, called Something. I think that of all The Beatles, of course, each of them is so entirely different. This is in terms of melodically, their songwriting, lyrically but George Harrison, there was almost something about him that I preferred the most. I loved every single one of them but I connected to George’s sense of melody more than anyone. So much that on the first Foo Fighters record there is a song entitled: “Oh, George”. Because I basically wanted the guitar solo to sound like something he would do. However, the guitar solo in the song “Something” is the first guitar solo that I ever learned. It’s such a beautiful solo. Melodically, it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most classic guitar solos of all time. Such a beautiful song. So this is something from the Abbey Road album by The Beatles. This Foo Fighters bandmate also revealed how much Dave Grohl pays them in a new interview.
