Dave Grohl says he is tired to be questioned if “Rock is really dead”

Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl talked about the debate “rock is dead” with The Daily Star, and he says he is tired to hear that question over the years.


Read what he said:

“I don’t believe in the school of thought that says rock ‘n’ roll is an extinct genre – I’ve been answering that question for 25 fucking years now.”

“Every time I release a record, they ask how it feels to be ‘one of the last.’ But I look around and I see a hell of a lot of rock bands.

“I remember giving an interview in London two years ago and the journalist asked, ‘Don’t you feel obsolete? Most of today’s groups don’t have guitars or drums.’ And then we sold out two nights at Wembley Stadium.

“So no, I think we’re OK and we’re going to be just fine.

“If you think about it too much it can change your ego and transform you into a ‘fucking rock star.’ I continue to think of life in a simpler way – we make albums, play concerts -but at the end of the day we’re just a group.”

Concrete and Gold

Concrete and Gold is the most recent Foo Fighters record and their ninth studio album, released last September 15, 2017.

With the musical production of Greg Kurstin, the album is the first of the band to present Rami Jaffee as keyboardist of the group, and presented the singles “Run” and “The Sky Is a Neighborhood”. The project also brought the appearances of Paul McCartney and Dave Koz.
