Dave Grohl Shuns Boundaries in Music
Dave Grohl believes there should be fewer restrictions in music. The Foo Fighters frontman, who is gearing up for the April release of his band's seventh album 'Wasting Light,' says there shouldn't be barriers in rock and roll.
"I can be friendly with the Jonas Brothers and Bob Mould," insists Grohl, who was a product of the elitist '80s Washington D.C. punk rock movement before becoming Nirvana's drummer in 1990.
"To me, I was a musician. I loved the Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains and all this punk rock s---, but I also loved Motorhead, Venom and f---ing ABBA," he says in the May issue of Q magazine. "I didn't have that guilt."
He added, "The whole thing with guilt is ... Of course it burnt a hole in Kurt's stomach," Dave says of his late bandmate. "It had a lot to do with how uneasy he felt about Nirvana's success. But s---, I didn't."
