Dave Grohl: “If the song dedicated to your ass comes first, this is a clear problem”

After almost thirty years of rock and roll, Dave Grohl is still playing real rock, making films and television shows, and trying, according to him, “not to seem like a boring old fart.” This exclusive interview proves that he succeeds.

He soloists with Foo Fighters (eight albums, 11 million copies sold, many awards and impressive world tours), and works on musical projects, including with David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age.

After the meeting of Daniel Koch with the musician, the realization came: Noel Gallagher is a damn sweet guy, and not at all a boisterous asshole, as many people used to see him. He only pretends to be that way and it gives him a lot of pleasure.

A conversation with Noel Gallagher is very difficult to reflect in writing. Not because this person has nothing to say – on the contrary: he cuts one caustic official statement after another, you can immediately give it to the press. But the first problem arises already in translation: using the words “fuck, fuckin ‘, Continue reading
