Alternative Nation reported that former Foo Fighters drummer, William Goldsmith (also Sunny Day Real Estate drummer) has revealed why he admired Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl.
“Did you get any sort of creative enjoyment, were you able to make the beats your own?”
“For me, I definitely admired Dave as a drummer, so I kind of felt like, who am I to alter such a thing? I just didn’t know. Not to mention, to alter it or evolve it, I would actually have to have time to sit down, and jam, to sit down and actually play the songs, and experiment with the songs, rather than just have them be handed to you on a cookie sheet. It was just already there, so it was like, shit.”
“When I found myself in similar situation, I try to inject my own feel into it or something, and I always try to have some other project going on where I’m writing the songs, so that I have a different creative outlet.”
“It would be nice if there would have been time, but dude, I was on the road for 17 months.”

On the same interview, Goldsmith said:
“I wish that I just never met him (Dave Grohl). To be honest man, I was not happy in that band because at first Dave said, ‘I want this to be fun. I want this to be a band. I don’t want to spend our lives on the road, we’re just going to have fun.’ I was like, ‘Right on, that sounds great because we don’t want to tour to death.’ But that’s what we did man, we toured to death.
