Dave Grohl has clearly spent too long making new music and is bored by the idea of simply recording an album in a studio.
The 45 year-old Foo Fighters frontman and his bandmates travelled to various cities in the US to record tracks for their new album ‘Sonic Highways’ – with the process captured in an accompanying TV series with the same name – and now he can’t imagine returning to a straightforward recording process in the future.
The star explained to Q mag: ”Ultimately, this is one hell of a f**king machine that’s gonna spray this album everywhere…But you have to balance that with substance.
”More than a reality tv show, more than a live concert series. It’s part of the reason that we got deeper into the concept, because we would love people to learn as much as be entertained.
”But I can’t imagine just going into a studio and making another record. It seems so boring to me.”
Dave recently explained the group explored the ”regional relevance of music” while recording ‘Sonic Highways’.
He said: ”Basically, the process is we come to a city and we spend a week and we start recording an instrumental, because I interview all of these different musicians from that city.
”I talk about the regional relevance of the music from that city, the cultural influence, that ‘made-for-the-sound’ of the music.
”There’s no way that you can tell the history of a city’s music in one hour, so we have to do it in a way that relates to the band and goes from point A to point B and becomes a song.”
