A group of record company executives, sitting down to sketch the perfect rock star, may well come up with someone a little like Dave Grohl. He has the look—long, thick black hair; he has the talent—he plays the drums, guitar and piano, he sings and he writes his own songs; and, above all, he has both pedigree and credibility.
Foo fighters have been around for a while now (16 years according to the article) and their music has never really aged or gone away. Which is very different to the pop-crap that tends to play on the radio nowadays. Some songs I used to listen to have now aged terribly.
In comparison I still enjoy listening to ‘learn to fly’ and ‘best of you’ two songs I’ve enjoyed for ages. To me they’re timeless.
