Dave Grohl says he would never leave Foo Fighters to go solo
Dave Grohl has said he would never go solo because he “actually like[s] being in the Foo Fighters“.The frontman is currently busy promoting the band’s new gross-out splatter horror Studio 666, and in a recent interview about the film he talked about never wanting to split from the Foos to go it alone.Describing the new movie, he told Sky News: “The premise is based on a lot of really hilarious rock and roll cliches and stereotypes, right? The lead singer that wants to go solo and is at a creative war with his own band – and some lead singers do exactly that.”He then added: “That’s something I would never wish to do because I actually like being in the Foo Fighters.”Grohl formed Foo Fighters in 1994 as a one-man project following the dissolution of his former band Nirvana. The band have won 12 Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album four times, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.Meanwhile, Grohl told NME in a new interview that he thinks Liam Gallagher is “one of the last remaining rock stars”.Earlier this month, Gallagher released ‘Everything’s Electric’, the first single to be taken from his upcoming new solo album ‘C’MON YOU KNOW’, which is set for release on May 27 and is the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Why Me? Why Not.’.The song was co-written by Foo Fighters frontman Grohl, who also plays drums on the track, and its producer Greg Kurstin.“Unfortunately we didn’t do it in person but I love being in the same room as Liam,” Grohl said of the collaboration. “It’s like putting a fucking quarter in a juke box and just turning it up with that guy.

Watch Liam Gallagher perform ‘Everything’s Electric’ on ‘The Tonight Show’
Liam Gallagher stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (February 25) to deliver a performance of his new single, ‘Everything’s Electric’.Released earlier this month, the track is set to appear on the former Oasis frontman’s upcoming new solo album ‘C’MON YOU KNOW’, which is set for release on May 27 and is the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Why Me? Why Not.’.For his appearance on Fallon, Gallagher and his band perform ‘Everything’s Electric’ from a dimly lit studio space, with the singer wearing his trademark Parker and yielding a pair of maracas.You can watch the performance below:‘Everything’s Electric’ was co-written by Foo Fighters frontman Grohl, who also plays drums on the track, and its producer Greg Kurstin.Gallagher and Grohl first met a number of years ago when the Foos and Oasis toured together, and speculation about a collaboration between the two has been building in recent years.Speaking about Grohl’s contribution in a recent interview with NME, Gallagher said it was the first time the Foo Fighters frontman had ever sent him a song, but Grohl’s bandmate Taylor Hawkins sends him one “every fucking week”.Grohl’s contribution, brought to Gallagher himself by Kurstin, was chosen over any of his friend Hawkins’ offerings because “it’s an out-and-out rock’n’roll tune”. The drummer’s ideas, meanwhile, he said were “a fucking bit kinky, man”.Elsewhere in the chat with NME, Gallagher hit out at Damon Albarn‘s recent comments about Taylor Swift and declared her to be “fucking cool”.
