Dave Grohl, God-like human, and yet still a regular fan:
Ok, so I happened to have been looking for a particular video interview of Kurt Cobain to quote him correctly in a piece I was doing, and I came across this video footage of a SOUNDGARDEN show… and who is in the crowd, just enjoying the show like a regular fan? It is none other than DAVE GROHL!! This is the same guy who was given an award in England last year for achieving “God-like” status in his creative timeline. The point is: you’re never too old, or never too BIG to be a FAN anymore. The day you stop becoming a fan, you almost cease to exist as a being of any sense. What a solid dude. He could have been anywhere.. backstage… not there at ALL, but he’s in the crowd w the other fans!! Sometimes I’m at shows… and I come for the BANDS… I see people there, that aren’t even there for the music. Even worse, I see bands that are there only to perform, and when they’re done they’re gone. You can always learn something from seeing another band in action: either something NOT to do, or something you never knew before that can benefit you in your set. You can never stop being a fan… once that happens, pretty soon you’re old, fat and sitting in front of a tv with a microwave dinner watching things that were relevant 30 years ago… you’ve become fossilized!!!!!! Don’t become fossilized!!! Be a fan and stay alive!!!
I always thought Dave Grohl was taller than that lol. Thanks to tourbuslive.com for posting this on youtube…. Be part of our crue!!!!!
