Off Camera, Episode 7: Dave Grohl

“What could be more simple than just hitting a red button and letting a tape reel f*cking roll?” — Dave Grohl on recording Wasting Light to tape

For episode 7 of Off Camera, a webzine, television show, and podcast, photographer/director and founder Sam Jones sat down with Dave Grohl to discuss a little bit of everything going on his world. Among other things, topics included Dave’s punk background, his main gigs Nirvana and Foo Fighters (of course), the recording of Wasting Light, the filming and recording of the Sound City documentary and companion album, where the music industry is headed, and probably most importantly, working as hard as you can at what you love while keeping things simple.

If video ain’t your thang, you can also read the full interview at the Off Camera site or listen to the podcast version.

Enjoy!

And did you notice how bored Taylor Hawkins looks?!

Meytal Cohen performs “Everlong” by Foo Fighters

A certain rock ‘n’ roll snob friend of mine turned me onto Meytal Cohen when he posted a clip of her performing Queen of the Stone Age’s “No One Knows”, a song which everyone knows by now features Dave Grohl on the drum kit. Here she is performing another of Dave’s works, and quite possibly my favorite Foo Fighters song ever, “Everlong.”

"Everlong" is a deceptively difficult song (the high hat part is a complete workout by itself), but Meytal makes it look easy, and if you watch her other videos, you’ll discover that she hits just as hard as any male drummer out there.

And she’s way cuter than Dave.
