Foo Fighters 2/8/21

Foo Fighters have just dropped the video for “No Son Of Mine,” the band’s third clip from its just-released Medicine At Midnight collection. The video follows the band’s first two from the album — “Shame Shame” and “Waiting On A War.”

During a recent chat with England’s MetroDave Grohl talked about putting his life on pause due to the ongoing pandemic, revealing, “It’s been a nice time to kind of get off the treadmill, on a certain level. I’m not saying that sounds unsympathetic because I know the world’s in a lot of trouble, it’s terrible, I know this. I’m just so fortunate and I feel fortunate the time this has given me.”

He went on to explain, “I haven’t really got off the treadmill in 28 years. You never really get a chance to look; you get little moments of, ‘Oh, my life’s amazing,’ but you’re usually onto the next record, or gig, or side project. You’re constantly go go go, and when you’re not, you get to reflect, if you’re lucky, which. . . I’m lucky. I just want this place to heal and people to go be human beings again.”

Grohl spoke about how things have been loosening up with new Foos’ activity: “We’ve been getting together a lot more, safely, and testing so it feels like the only difference is we rehearse and do TV shows, so we’ve managed to somehow, in some strange way, be a band still.”

With a quarter century under its belt as a band Dave Grohl told us a that the Foo Fighters takes care to pace itself: [“We have a way of doing this that we’ve always done. We try to keep things very simple. We try to do it as much as we can without burning it out, and if it gets to the point where we’re, where we don’t enjoy it, we just sort of stop. That’s what’s kept us around this long and we can always say, ‘Nope, stop.'”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . say nope stop)
