Former Nirvana star and Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, was the latest interview guest of Anders Botters Tiny TV last week and revealed his first-ever reaction after watching AC/DC’s live performance when he was a little kid.
As you may already remember, Foo Fighters has released their tenth studio album named ‘Medicine At Midnight’ last month after delaying it due to a coronavirus pandemic before it was originally scheduled for 2021. The album features nine new tracks that were all written by Foo Fighters and it got 75/100 based on 22 reviews on Metacritic.
According to his interview which was the final episode of Foo Fighters Week, Dave Grohl has shared the details of the first-ever live show concert film he watched when he was young.
Dave stated that he went to watch AC/DC’s ‘Let There Be Rock’ when he was just 10-years-old and that was the day he saw a performance that made him want to break something and it’s still a reference point for him.
Here is what Dave Grohl said:
“I wasn’t performing at the Grammys; I was presenting an award or something. I’m lucky to say that Paul McCartney is a friend, and I love him very much. As much as he’s a hero of mine, he’s also a very sweet man and a friend.
And so he was in town too. And he called and said, ‘What are you doing after the Grammys?’ I said, ‘I think maybe me and Pat and Taylor are just gonna have dinner.’ And he said, ‘Do you mind if I and Nancy come?’ I’m, like, ‘No. That’d be great.’
So then he bumps into AC/DC in a hotel or something. And then they say, ‘What are you doing after the show?’ And he says, ‘I’m gonna go have dinner with the Foo Fighters.’ And Paul said, ‘Do you wanna come?‘ So Paul’s wife calls my wife, and then my wife says, ‘Hey, do you mind if AC/DC comes to dinner?’ And I had never met AC/DC.”
“When I was maybe — I don’t know — 10 years old, I went to see that movie ‘Let There Be Rock’, the live concert film, in a movie theater. This is before I was punk rock. That was the first time I saw a performance and heard music that made me wanna fucking break something. And still to this day, I use that as a reference for how I like to play a show.
I wanna be like AC/DC ‘Let There Be Rock’. That’s a live band. So then we had this beautiful night. And there was this jazz band. And it was one of the greatest nights of my entire life.”
