I don’t think I ever read a more stupid and pointless interview, but since it is a slow news day… Dave Grohl, who is definitively omnipresent and omnipotent, has spoken again, to the Sun of all the tabloids! and if I can’t read the complete interview without a subscription, enough of it was reported on other websites. And what do we learn? That Grohl loves Arctic Monkeys and prays they don’t ‘self-destruct’:
‘They are fucking awesome. They’re taking over America. The American audiences fucking love them. Alex Turner, fuck yeah, he’s a rock star. I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.’
Dave may be a bit late in the game for Arctic Monkeys, but the big surprise is that, does he even pray? And do his prayers to God include a lot of fucking/fuck? Bands come and go, that’s the rule Dave, except for the Foo Fighters, they seem to never go away, unfortunately.
Then there is the Kardashians episode, which, by itself puts Dave’s view of the world at a whole new low level:
‘I stopped doing drugs when I was about 20 years old. But I recently thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to start smoking pot again to cure insomnia. I’d put the kids to bed, go upstairs and smoke a bit of pot. But then I’d get stuck in front of the Kardashians on TV for 45 minutes. And it freaked me out. I was like, ‘I’m never doing this ever again. It’s definitely not for me.’
What is not for him? Pot or the Kardashians or the combination of both? Because it can be very confusing and right there, he has blown up a possible collab with Kanye, you know… not that he wanted to do that, but since Kanye West seems to be ‘the name’ that everyone drops after the question, ‘whom do you want to collaborate with?’ I was just anticipating… The fact that he was even watching the Kardashians show is very scary… Although he should be used to scary since this public hug with Courtney Love.
I know that the Foo Fighters are very popular, they have recently announced a massive world tour, starting July 4th 2015 in Washington D.C., and they will probably sell out each place, but do we need to know each one of Dave Grohl’s brain farts? I am overdosing right now, yesterday night I stumbled on, yes, another one of his Sonic Highways episodes when I turned on my TV and I got distracted very fast. Unsurprisingly, Grohl has admitted to Rolling Stone that he didn’t ‘know shit about jazz’ and didn’t ‘know shit about New Orleans’… if you wanted more proof that Grohl is always talking at the top of his head… and this Sun interview is just another example…
