Forget the Greatest Hits album being an obituary. Apparently there is no hiatus. According to Dave Grohl, he and drummer Taylow Hawkins “have already started demoing songs” for a new album. Oh, and the band is working with producer Butch Vig – ya know, the guy that did Nevermind. Better still, Grohl seems to think the new material “could be our heaviest yet.” Better still, the band will be recording in analog in Dave’s garage….

The latest and worst Foo Fighters song to date

Foo Fighters

Don’t get me wrong here, I love the Foo Fighters, I really do. “The Colour and the Shape” is one of my all time favorite albums, and I’m a huge fan of Grohl’s work, be it in the kit with Nirvana, QOTSA and Them Crooked Vultures or playing frontman in the FF, but recently it’s like the band is simply making fun of itself, a shadow of its former glorious rocking self. I can perfectly…

New Foo Fighters video: ‘Wheels’

A totally unremarkable video for a totally mediocre song, maybe even subpar. I understand compiling a Greatest Hits record for the cheese and all, but did you guys really had to go round writing crap too? Oh, well, I’m pretty sure I’ll forget it by tomorrow. Good thing Grohl’s back in the kit, where he belongs. Greatest Hits is out November 3rd.

New Foo Fighters song: ‘Wheels’ (original studio version)

Foo Fighters

The Foos’ ‘long break’ is by any means far from over, especially with Dave’s involvement with Them Crooked Vultures in the studio and on tour. As the hiatus rages on, though, there’s no reason for the band not to market their brand and earn a few more hard earned dollars for their lengthy career by releasing a greatest hits record, suggestively titled “Greatest Hits” (who came up with that name?). The 16 track long album…

During this weekend, these rumors have been intensified by the fact that they have collaborated with Foo Fighters at Wembley Stadium. What should we understand from this? Well basically what happened is that during an encore requested by fans from the Foos, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones joined the band at the huge venue. I don’t know if anybody expected this (I…

Foo Fighters ‘nicest band ever’

Well this most definetly isn’t a title your average rock band will fight for and I’m not sure it’s something you should take pride in. You don’t wanna fall into the trap of becoming all mushy and stuff. So how come they beat Coldplay to get this title? To get the answet to that, you should just listen to the countless music scribes who can’t get through a profile piece on the act without mentioning…
