During the recent conversation with The Bill Simmons Podcast, Foo Fighters icon Dave Grohl has unveiled a secret story from his past.
In the talk, Dave stated that they were struggling with recording the songs, and he found a new way to record by joining Queens of the Stone Age.
After he joined the recording sessions with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave found out the reason why they were failing all the time. The problem was recording the songs one by one in the studio. Later on, they started to record in the same room and played the songs together.
Here is what Dave Grohl said:
“The thing that got weird with us was: I had, we were making a record and it just wasn’t working out – our fourth record. It just didn’t sound good, it didn’t feel good, we weren’t into it.
In the meantime, my buddy Josh from Queens of the Stone Age had just bailed his drummer. He said, ‘Dude, I’ve got two weeks. Could you just come to do the drums on my record?'”
“So we go on to record with Queens, and it was kind of the opposite of what we were doing. What we were doing was, ‘Alright, let’s just put this bass down.’ The Queens of the Stone Age thing was this collective lightning bolt, ‘Let’s do this!
Tracking live, and you’re in the same room, face to face, it was fucking mean and hungry. It was great. So I go do that, and it is fucking badass. I was, like, ‘This is good.'”
