Dave Grohl says the new generation will resurrect Rock

During interview with 98.7 FM Dave Grohl said he is optimistic about Rock and Roll’s future. He said that the new generation will resurrect the genre in the next 10 years.

“You’re looking out there and like, I get it. My kids, I have one kid who is really into Bowie and Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, but also into new music too, and she’s in a rock band.

“She sings in a rock band, my daughter Violet. The kids that she plays with, they’re rock and roll kids. So I’m looking at these kids thinking, ‘Okay, they’re in it, they’re in it for real.’

“Something is going to happen with them in the next 10 years, and I think there’s another generation of kids, that is going to bring it back.”
