Dave Grohl quotes

May 29 2017

It was as if all of our punk-rock and classic-rock dreams came true together. Everybody, whether it was in Washington, D.C., or Washington state, looked up to Soundgarden as this force of nature.feedback

There was a bunch of the Seattle gang there, and Chris just seemed so quiet and mellow compared to the rest of the maniacs.feedback

May 20 2017

We went with Gil because on all of his albums he manages to get some sort of clarity, even in the dirtiest sound. But the biggest reason we hired him was because of the arrangements on the last Pixies album, Trompe Le Monde. They're all so bizarre, and he let me in on how they did a lot of them. Some of them are mathematical, like the first half of a song would mirror the second half, and stuff like that. And he just seemed like such a character.feedback

We had known for almost four months that Pat was going to leave the band. He told us early on this year that he didn't want to tour anymore and he doesn't like doing press and he hates flying, tons of stuff. Of course we were totally shocked. Then I remembered, when Pat joined Nirvana, all of his friends were placing bets on how long he was going to last in that band. Some friends bet a week, or a month, or two months. This is the longest he's stayed in a band since the Germs.feedback

It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Because if we wanted to give the album a name that referred to the mood or the attitude of the record, then it would be called 'My Therapist's Couch' or something.feedback

May 20 2017 - Christmas

We took a break for Christmas, so I went back to Virginia by myself. I took the rough tracks of what we'd done and it didn't seem right. The album had something missing. But I had this one riff that I originally thought was a Sonic Youth rip-off, but I decided it might be good to turn it into a song. When I brought it to our producer Gil Norton, he said, That's great! Let's put it on the album!feedback

The first album was recorded in about five days. I really didn't pay much attention to the production or the arrangements. It was just 'Get in the studio and get it done.' But for this album we did pre-production, we hired a producer and we wanted there to be unconventional arrangements. We just wanted to go in and make kind of a slick rock record, and I think that we did. They're about last winter, the winter of my discontent.feedback

In Europe and in England, when bands play, the audience doesn't beat the shit out of each other like they do in America; they do this bounce, right? Everybody bounces.feedback

He wouldn't let me have dinner until I'd written some lyrics. Every time I wrote a bad line I'd get 40 lashes.feedback

May 20 2017

The title is kind of like an inside joke that we have with the band. When we were on tour, our tour manager was always out shopping every day before the show and buying really weird stuff. He'd come back with these really huge candles from 1947 and the next day he came back with a lamp with Jesus on it. ... So one day he comes into the dressing room with this bowling pin, a red one with white stripes, and he said, Look what I bought today.' I said, What the fuck are you doing? Why would you buy a bowling pin?' – 'Because I like the color and I like the shape.feedback

I figured on the way up here, I thought we would play a new song. We've never played this before to anybody. The sky is a neighborhood, don't make a sound.feedback

I was in the top 10 rock 'n' roll artists – up there with Sid Vicious. I always had that edge. But I was really young. I'm 28 now, and I've got kids.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I was really happy with it, if I'm honest. I've been kicked out of a few parties, but it's fun when you get kicked out. Being told to leave is great. Get out, you're too p-----. Wicked.feedback

The Amy Winehouse story hits close to home because there are some parallels between Amy and Kurt [Cobain]. She understands there are some kids who work outside of conventional systems.feedback

Mar 02 2017

There's something about [Lorde] that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic. She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist.feedback
