Foo Fighters and Nirvana icon Dave Grohl discussed playing the Dimebash in honor of Dimebag Darrell, and how his friends fear those type of shows and his cooking for Dimebag’s girlfriend Rita are for ‘heavy metal serial killers.’ Dave Grohl’s sad photo with John Lennon’s widow was recently revealed.
The interviewer asked, “Has manning the barbecue for you become as communal as playing music?”
Grohl responded, “It is. At something like this, I mean, I’ve known most of these guys here and I’ve been friends with them for years. There’s a real sense of community and we’ve been on tour with each other, supported each other and we can all stand around the barbecue and laugh and play music and it’s a great time. There have been times when I’ve cooked for Rita and I’ve invited like my super-straight like private school Valley dads and when I tell them it’s like a metal show thing with Pantera, they get a little scared.
But they come down and then afterwards they’re always like, “Everyone was so nice.” You expect everyone to be like heavy metal serial killer, but no, it’s all just so fun. You share food, you share music, you share laughs and, especially here, it’s so exciting and an honor to celebrate Dimebag.”
Rage Against The Machine recently unloaded on Dave Grohl disrespect. Foo Fighters are currently recording a new album with producer Greg Kurstin, and fans on Reddit discussed their hopes for the album on Reddit.
Tcb37 asked, “What would y’all like to hear in the 2020 Foo Fighters album OR what do you think it will be like?”
BigJuicyThanos responded, “Well based off of what the 25 year anniversary post sounded like, and the little bits they’ve posted on Instagram, it seems to me, and correct me if I am mistaken, that this album is gonna be a fucking banger.
I don’t remember where I heard this, but I also heard either a rumor or a theory that Butch Vig (producer of Wasting Light and Nirvana’s Nevermind) is producing this one again. It’s exciting to hear the producer of their best album is gonna be working on this new one too!”
TheJosh96 chimed in, “It sounds like they’re heading towards a more classic rock sound. The 25th anniversary post track sounded like a classic Led Zeppelin riff with a bit of AC/DC in it. The guitars don’t even sound heavily distorted either, they’re more like overdriven or crunchy, rather than grunge sounding.”
