Foo Fighters Making Music in New Ways
For many of those who missed it, the Foo Fighters were on 60 minutes and talked all about their new album “Sonic Highways.” The album is being made in an extraordinary way where the band travels to different cities, interviews musicians about their music and history, and then uses that inspiration to write their own songs.
“It’s unlike anything any rock band has ever attempted, and a reflection of everything Dave Grohl loves about making music.” Anderson Cooper says.
There’s also an HBO documentary that captured the process of this one-of-a-kind album being made. However, it isn’t just about being different or trying new ways to market an album. David Grohl says some pretty inspirational lines when it comes to the album.
“The reward of playing music should be playing music.” Grohl claims.
We certainly can’t argue with that. Grohl even goes on to attack American Idol saying, “I would never make it, ever, in a heartbeat. People need to appreciate their voice. I don’t want to sing like someone else. I want to sing like me.”
The HBO Documentary is currently airing, and the album “Sonic Highways” will be released November 10th.
