While many are declaring rock dead, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has hope for the future. He thinks his daughter Violet and other kids are the ones who will bring rock back. He discussed the future of rock in a recent Alt 98.7 interview. Alternative Nation transcribed Grohl’s comments.
“We have this amazing fanbase of people who come out to see us every time we come into town. We see people who were kids when we first went out on tour 25 years ago who are now bringing their kids to shows. You’re looking out there and like, I get it. My kids, I have one kid who is really into [David] Bowie and Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, but also into new music too, and she’s in a rock band.
She sings in a rock band, my daughter Violet. The kids that she plays with, they’re rock and roll kids. So I’m looking at these kids thinking okay, they’re in it, they’re in it for real. Something is going to happen with them in the next 10 years, and I think there’s another generation of kids that is going to bring it back.”
