My question is (and please, don’t take this the wrong way) is why Dave couldn’t make the new Foo Fighter’s album another new project a la Sound City? The more I hear about this album, the more it seems like Sound City 2.0… Dave advertised and got the word out for Sound City easily, he could just as easily put word out on another new documentary/album combo. It just seems a little silly to label something as big as what Dave is doing as a Foo Fighters album. I’m withholding all judgment until I actually hear the album but I’m certainly distancing myself from expecting to enjoy a new CD from the Foo Fighters like I did in the same way as Wasting Light. Dave has every right to do what he wants as an artist but it’s just making me ask questions…
I feel exactly the same way. I mean, I hope that the rest of the band is as pumped as Dave is for this next venture because that’s really important. I don’t like the fusion of Sound City/personal projects and Foo Fighters.
The only difference is that I was super stoked about Wasting Light and had a great feeling about it. The promotion and everything for it was special and amazing… don’t think it can be recreated by going bigger.
But, of course, I’ll listen to the new album with an open mind and I’m excited for it and the tour. But yeah. I’m pretty down on the whole thing.
Yesterday was my first not-fun day on set. It was bound to happen. Complete shitstorm, but the footage turned out great. Everyone fucked up, including me. I’d be upset with myself if I was the only person who made a mistake. But everyone was contributing to the poisonous environment as a whole. Eeesh.

"Marriage. Some people claim it’s an archaic institution. But I think it’s really a scam designed to make us want to live on top of cakes."
Some scary quotes just from Dave Grohl interview in billboard
“Crazier, perhaps, is Grohl’s decision to use this cultural expedition [HBO series] to inform the Foos’ next album, which promises to stretch the bounds of the band’s hard-rock hooks.”
"As we were coming down from the success of the last record, I thought, ‘Now we have license to get weird’."
“The goal, he adds, is to make stadium anthems that startle. Instead of just ‘banging out these big choruses, because that’s what we do, we’re banging them out in the middle of instrumental sections that will take you by surprise’,”
"Where Grohl, 45,”
