Dave Grohl Haters

Recommended Posts

I'm sure everyone likes a few Foo Fighters songs - I put half a dozen on the mixes I made for travel with my wife in the car. There's some decent stuff in their catalogue, no doubt, but they're still just them. Like Lindsay says - rock-by-numbers, boring radio rock band.

 

The way I'd put it best is they're an okay band to listen to if you have to listen to them (eg. if the radio is on). If you don't need to be listening to them, though, I certainly would not choose to do so.

 

As for being great live, I'm sure One Direction are very active when they play live. I'm sure the majority of popular bands play a good live show, but that personally means nothing to me at all if I don't connect with the songs. I'd personally much rather see a band play brilliant songs live without being amazing, rather than seeing a band play average songs in an amazing way.

 

Truth is One Direction are probably shit live but there you go.

 

I dont love every Foo Fighters release, but there are always at least 4-5 very good to excellent songs on each album, and that makes them worthwhile checking out.

 

If I was to make a 15 track best of cd for the car it would be great....and those 15 songs live will blow your balls off.

 

Trust me.....

Just one other thing.........

 

I must have seen close on 100 bands at Firefest and some of them have been good, some of them have been terrible.

 

But as good as most of those bands are and as much as I love them bands, if you were to put the Foo Fighters live in Rock City they would blow the place off the face of the earth.

 

Fact.

Nickelback,Matchbox 20 and Bon Jovi are more pop oriented than the Foo Fighters.Where I live in NY you will never hear the Foo Fighters played on the same station as Bon Jovi or Matchbox 20.BJ and M20 will be played on classic rock or adult contemporary stations while The Foo will be on active rock.

Geoff,if you've ever heard of Hotel California by The Eagles than you've heard Joe Walsh's guitar playing.

I think you meant to direct that towards Geoffery. And he's probably never heard that song. He has no patience for Classic Rock.

I've heard the song... regrettably. Haha, nah, it's okay for bland radio rock... kind of like Foo Fighters! ;)

 

But yeah, okay, fair enough if that's who he is. Still never heard of him. I always thought Eric Clapton was The Eagles' guitarist, wasn't he? What do I care anyway... not my type of music at all.

They're played one after the other on the 'rock' stations over here.

Foo fighters look far heavier than they sound.

I loved the sound city film He seems a genuine guy with a passion for music. Whether you like his music , or not, surely that counts for a lot?

Yeah that was a cool documentary, I like the guy he seems to have a lot of passion for his music but the Foos are just not for me. I've tried liking them but I just find them boring.

Geoffers..... are you guys so cut off in Oz :D 10 solo albums not counting live releases, The Barnstorm album or the James Gang albums. Never mind Eagles. Seriously his solo his stuff is some of the moist diverse stuff I have ever heard from a guitarist .... probably because he cares about songs and not (as most guitarists incessantly insist on doing) just showing off his chops!

    • Uhh... have you seen the slate of releases for early 2020? Shits all over 2019.
    • Not so fast my friend. Hold on a minute...... Without a single noteworthy release in 2020 out yet, these are ridiculous proclamations! 
    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
