Dave Grohl discussed Foo Fighters’ lack of ambition to win more Grammys recently in an interview with CBS, as transcribed by Alternative Nation.
“We’re the old guys. We root for the young ones. We don’t sit there and [angrily] think, ‘God, I hope I get another fucking Grammy!’ We’re like, ‘That Alabama Shakes record kicks ass.’ You root for the young ones coming up. A band like Alabama Shakes, they’re a good example, because they’ve been around for awhile.
I’ve watched them go from the side stage of the festival, to headlining the side stage, to being on the main stage early in the day, to headlining, over 6 or 8 years, so they’ve been working hard. So they deserve everything they get. Killer band, it’s a great record. So for that kind of stuff, we’re excited for the younger bands.”
Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich has revealed that Dave Grohl convinced him to feature a Lemmy tribute on the Grammys.
