  1. What if no one wants your band to play at there place because we have distortion how do we fine appropriate venues I live in Nashville please reply

  2. I wonder if a "badass" band would even make it these days. Maybe in metal, country, or jazz music. But not in pop.

  3. So so True . He knows what the excuses of johnny joe wannabe are . Its worse today . Kids want instant gratification . Thats why you hear so many complaints " why are there no great bands like there used to be " …well its because your generation didnt want to bust their asses . Ill go as far as saying even some of us gen x 'rs dropped the ball too . When you have spoiled generations , you have low creativity and quality . Most of the bands i liked were boomers. They had a work ethic.

  4. My advice for anyone interested in music or anything else entertainment related: Never give up on your dream, but also understand, accept, and assume that you will probably not ever be able to make a living from your art alone. Almost everyone who grew up playing music wishes they could do it for a living, but the average person only needs so much new music. As a result, making music alone for a living always has been and always will be a one-in-a-million chance. However, that dosen't mean you ever have to stop playing music and stay open to the possibility of one day making a living from music, nor does it even mean you have to identify with your day job.

  5. Dave could easily have cashed in on his ties to the skull & bones society to get to the top of the music business. Instead he chose to slave away in obscurity til he was handed a massive record deal – he's an inspiration to all of us !

  6. I really wish they wouldnt have cut this interview up into different segments on here, and theres a lot missing. There used to be a video of this whole thing. I'm not exactly a fan of nirvana or the foo fighters but Dave Grohl's heart is in the right spot. He's a smart, keen guy. If I was 1/4 as successful I'd die happy

  7. 🔥🔥🔥🔥. cool… you are awesome, for you from INFOPIX..🔥🔥 🔥🔥cool show… sub back.♥️♥️♥️♥
