Some highlights from the new Kerrang! feature:

- Concrete and Gold's runtime is 46:57.
- "Run" was the first song properly written for the record.
- "Arrows" is about his mother, raising two kids on a dead-end street.
- Paul McCartney's drums on "Sunday Rain" only took two takes.
- "Dirty Water" is Nate's favorite song on the album, because of its "smooth jazz intro," though he thinks they play it better live than they did on the record.

Quote:
Dave Grohl is shit.

Do not believe the hype. My life over the last two decades has been swamped with people spouting weak-assed crap like ďI donít want to say Dave Grohl is shit because it ainít up to me to tell others how to live their livesĒ. Damn straight. It AINíT up to you to tell others how to live. You so scared of being thought out-of-touch that you canít even figure out what you like yourself, though? You so scared of being viewed as opinionated or nasty or close-minded (shudder) a critic that you canít state your own opinions loud and clear, though? DAVE GROHL IS SHIT.

Heís a beardy smiley bland comfort zone for people who just need some reassurance in their lives, and have no expectations beyond the promise of the new Wolverine film next year, a smiley retro sweep of pre-digested emotion whose primary concern is not LURVE or LIFE orÖwait, why am I even discussing the streaming revenue with you? Dave Grohl is shit. You donít need to be outrageous to say this, you do not need to be cowed. You donít need to be a narcissist, you donít need to be a nobody. Dave Grohl is shit. You donít need to listen to Foo Fighters or work out to them down the football stadium or listen to their legion of desperate fans to realise this, just read the apologetic commentary from those too afraid to state the fact (and still think that somehow itís OK heís shit cos heís ďsuch a nice guyĒ), the apoplectic commentary from those who think theyíre Making A Statement by coming out against them, the yawning knee-less praise from those whose idea of a varied and worldly musical taste means including a David Bowie album on their playlist of Coldplay, U2, The Killers, Marilyn Manson and (shudder) Foo Fighters.

Look at the way he looks. Not so much a rock star as an exercise in hair conditioner. Dave Grohl is shit. How many times do I need to say this before you start listening? Hey, why not start listening? Just cos youíve only heard a handful of songs in your life does not mean that no alternatives exist. Dave Grohl is shit. Do not be scared of the crowd. Has it not occurred to you that the crowd can be wrong sometimes? Dave Grohl is shit. The idea of listening to his music drives me to extremes of nothing. Dave Grohl is shit. Shout it from the tops of buses and shout it from street corners. He is dreary, whiny, derivative, needless, grey. Dave Grohl is shit. He makes Chris Martin sound like Beyoncť. Flaunt the bump/donít flaunt the bump/FLAUNT THE BUMP! He makes Ed Sheeran shine with an inner fire. He puts Theresa May into perspective.

He is shit. He is crap. He is the shit in the middle of crap. His emotion is not his. Itís empty, big washes of guitar-driven bombastic nothingness. Dave Grohl is shit. The loudest boy in a room of one. Useless shit that pervades the world with the smell of uncritical acceptance. Smiley shit. Bouncy shit. Bearded shit. Dave Grohl is shit. He is one more commodity, just one more commodity. Shit. Less than nothing. Shit. Lifestyle choice for the folk who think someone else is cutting edge. Shit. An approximation of music that does not bother to capture the spark that can make music so special, so magical, so special. Just an approximation of an approximation. The boy next door, with a drum kit and a sound purloined from the past. Half-assed subcultural appropriation.

I eat at home. My nights are filled with splendour and children. Dave Grohl is shit. And that shit is everywhere.
What is he doing?!

Probably the only way to get column inches these days, although i think there is something else going on far more to do with himself and his own life rather than Dave.

There appears to be a whole book of 'criticism' against numerous artists. Sounds like a cry for help, I feel sorry for him!

I reckon he still hasn't got over the closure of the Army and Navy Pub!

Have you heard the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack? He sings on a couple tracks on it. Including singing the bass part on The Auld Triangle. I think he can do "fitting in" rather than being centre of attention

Oh, ok. I thought maybe someone from the station would say something about the album. Thanks! Btw, glad you got to see them! (from the other thread)

So true! So true. I've been a fan of his hair for years. But it does seem to be a bit floofier than in the past on this tour.

IMHO people are desperate, cause, on the internet days, getting attention (and making money) it's so more difficult than in the past. Dave became one of the preferred targets cause he is a guy from the past who shines nowadays! The guy smells success and that's is all the truth. Dave is like a proxy to other people get their 15 minutes of attention!

So sad. People can't separate the criticism from offense anymore.

Other truth, who knows how to do, do something. Who doesn't, talk shit!

You and I have our priorities straight!

And I know, lol. While watching their Glastonbury set (on tv), I think a good 17% of my brain was distracted wondering about the ever-increasing floofiness.

I think that's true. I also wonder if his closeness to Courtney has a lot to do with it.
