Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I didn't start sweating until I had children. That was one of the first things I realized when my daughter Violet was born - I started getting wicked BO. You know there's a difference between basketball BO and stress BO? This was definitely stress BO. Like, new dad BO.

Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I had never been in charge of anything. I'd always worked for someone. I worked for a furniture warehouse. I did masonry. I always had a boss yelling at me. So I'd never been in charge of an organization.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument - learning to do your craft - that's the most important thing! It's not about what goes on in a computer!

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I can understand how some people might resent me for having the audacity to continue playing music, but it'd take a lot more than that to stop me from doing it. I started Foo Fighters because I didn't want to retreat.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I think my biggest musical hero growing up was probably Ian MacKaye. He set a great example for all of us local musicians. Still, to this day, I see him as the best example of a right-on musician.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

The thing that will never go away is that connection you make with a band or a song where you're moved by the fact that it's real people making music. You make that human connection with a song like 'Let It Be' or 'Long and Winding Road' or a song like 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or 'Roxanne,' any of those songs. They sound like people making music.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

And later, if I ever felt that I was getting swept away by the craziness of being in a band, well, I'd go back to Virginia.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

When there's so much left to do, why spend your time focusing on things you've already done, counting trophies or telling stories about the good old days?

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Because you have things like 'American Idol' and you've got radio stations that play music made entirely by computers, it's easy to forget there are bands with actual people playing actual instruments that rock.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I've experienced great things, I've experienced great tragedies. I've done almost everything I could possibly ever imagine doing, but I just know that there's more.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I taught myself how to play the guitar, I taught myself how to play the drums, and I kind of fake doing both of them. But drumming comes more natural to me, and it just feels better.

Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

You know why Foo Fighters have been a band for 20 years? Because I've never really told anybody what I think of them. The last thing you ever want to do is go to therapy with your band.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

There's always gonna be rock n' roll bands, there's always gonna be kids that love rock n' roll records, and there will always be rock n' roll.

A musician should only sound like what they do, and no two musicians sound the same. It's an individual-feel thing, you know?

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I'm not into albums that are meant to sound perfect.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

There's poetry in being the band that can sell out Wembley but also makes a record in a garage. I don't like doing what people expect me to do.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

When I joined Nirvana, I was the fifth or sixth drummer - I don't know if they'd ever had a drummer they were totally happy with. And they were strangers. There was never much of a deeper connection outside of the music.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I had a Super Grover doll growing up. Super Grover was very clumsy, he wasn't very good-looking. But in his own way he'd always save the day.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

A lot of the records you buy, there's nothing you can hold in your hand, it's all 1's and 0's, this digital cloud floating in the ether. but with analog albums, you can hold it in your hand.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I'm happy that I have my family, and I'm happy that I had Virginia, where I grew up, to retreat to any time I felt overwhelmed. Whenever there were times when I felt like the rug was being pulled out from under me and I was floating in this crazy space, I would stop and go back to that neighborhood and realize nothing's changed, really.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

The most important thing is that you honor that musical integrity, whether you make music that sounds like ABBA or you make music that sounds like Void.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I think maybe people see bands and musicians as some sort of superhero unrealistic sport that happens in another dimension where it's not real people and not real emotions. So, I grew up listening to Beatles records on my floor. That's how I learned how to play guitar. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be a musician.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

When I listen to the radio, I just hear so much music that doesn't even sound like people. The vocals are all tuned, and the drums are all fake.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

I know a lot of people who wouldn't be comfortable with everything that comes with being in a band as big as Nirvana. The thing that I don't understand is not appreciating that simple gift of being able to play music.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

When you're recording to analog tape, it captures performance and you can't necessarily manipulate that in different ways. It is what it is.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

No one has any faith in the tape anymore - everyone just relies on computers and considers the hardrive to be the safest option, and I don't. I think an analog tape is something you can hold.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Who's to say what's a good voice and not a good voice?

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

You know, Nirvana used to start rehearsals with the three of us just jamming. For, like, a half an hour, just noise and freeform crap - and usually it was crap. But sometimes things would come from it, and some songs on Nevermind came from that, and 'Heart Shaped Box' and stuff on 'In Utero' just happened that way.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

Usually, when you go in to make a record, you have 30 songs, and you record 30 of them, and 12 of them make it to the record.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

At 13 years old, I realized I could start my own band. I could write my own song, I could record my own record. I could start my own label. I could release my own record. I could book my own shows. I could write and publish my own fanzine. I could silk-screen my own T-shirt. I could do this all myself.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

If it weren't for the Beatles, I would not be a musician.

Dave Grohl


Free Status Quote By - Dave Grohl

When I listen to music these days, and I hear Pro Tools and drums that sound like a machine - it kinda sucks the life out of music.
