The founder of Foo Fighters who is mostly known as the legendary ex-drummer of Nirvana, Dave Grohl, was the latest interview guest of ‘Q On CBC’s Tom Power and talked about many things from Foo Fighters’ new album ‘Medicine at Midnight‘ to performing at U.S President Joe Biden’s inaugural celebration.
As you may already follow the news, Foo Figters’ latest album named Medicine at Midnight was meant to be released in 2020. However, the tenth studio album of the band was delayed to February 5, 2021. The album was released earlier this month and got great reviews from many authorities like AllMusic, The Guardian, and Rolling Stone.
In the interview, Tom Power has asked how was he feeling while singing at the end of ‘All My Life’ before the self-quarantine and Dave shared the story of how did he break his leg once and what kept him going. According to Dave, his famous ‘Game of Thrones’ style seat which was looking like a laser throne made him look like Julius Ceaser on stage.
Here is what Dave Grohl said:
“It’s insane, I mean, it’s crazy. It’s like this crazy, cathartic primal scream therapy kind of thing, where everyone’s just going screams together, it’s like an army, but there’s no war. It’s amazing, it’s beautiful, it’s incredible.
There was a time when I broke my leg once, but I didn’t want to stop touring, so I had this chair that looked like this rock and roll like laser throne, it was insane, and so every night they would literally carry me, put me on the throne, the curtain comes up, and I’m sitting there conducting a stadium from this chair.”
“It was hard not to feel like Julius Caesar, there were times I was like ‘be careful, okay, go back to the hotel, order a pizza and go to sleep’, but ultimately, it is that connection that I do take into consideration, but I don’t necessarily consider it an obligation.
I don’t consider it a responsibility, but I do, of course, wish that I’m able to connect with the listener in a way that we could both share a song.”
