I totally read that as "Fu-Schnickens" to get their own HBO series. I am both very tired and now disappointed.

Will there be much pitying?

Sounds completely boring, even if you are a fan. Can't believe people will actually watch this.

I prefer my bands making cameo appearances in other HBO series.

I would have been up for seeing it twenty years ago, when it was relevant.

Or maybe ten years ago, if he was making out with Josh Homme.

I loved the Sound City documentary, so I'll watch this too.

I see Dave Grohll is  directing. Is Steev Mike  producing?

"....this insider's look at how regional music inspired them to create their own new music."

I took that to mean "disregard it completely and carry on with making generic arena-rawk"

will each successive episode be a minor variation of 5 minutes from the first episode?

I follow a bunch of authors who had multiple sitings of Dave in New Orleans at the same time they had a convention.
There was much squee.

They should make "FRESH POTS!: the series".

Well subby, women who've handled my gong mallet probably wouldn't bother with a little drumstick.

They still put out a few good songs every couple years but they've let me down on every album since the fourth. I love Dave's attitude that it's awesome being rich and famous.
 
2014-05-19 01:55:35 AM
No idea why, but the term "Drop" for when an album is released really irks me.

Dave Grohl seems to be a genuinely nice guy with a great attitude and loves the fark out of his "job". But for some reason some people have a problem with that.

I met the Grohl back in the Nirvana years and thought he was a dick. Krist Novoselic, on the other hand, was a very nice guy. Didn't get to meet Cobain.

Dave also has a somewhat purist attitude towards Rock music that comes off as dismissive of pretty much every other genre.

But I think it mostly has to do with Dave's personality outshining Foo Fighters' output. I liked their first 2 albums when they came out, but everything since is rather bland; yet despite that mediocre output, Dave gets treated like a Rock god because he seems like a fairly cool guy.

I have no problems with his purist attitude. They are one of the last remaining "big" rocks bands who actually write their own music, don't bow down to a record company, and don't use a bunch of bulls hit pro tools and devices to sound way better than they are.

I think his "attitude" stems from the fact that alt rock today is nothing more than synthesized pop music and clog dancing. There is no more alt rock because they studios don't want to take any more risks in rock music. It's a lot easier to ghost write a bunch of dance happy synthetic music and call it "alt". And I agree with Dave. It's all bullshiat. And quite frankly anyone who listens modern "alt" and thinks they are listening to rock music is an idiot.

The food fighters are the last of a dying breed. Not because people can't write good rock music but because the record labels would rather produce bands that are famous for 5 minutes and then go away.

Love the FF and have all their albums.  Need to get Sound City I guess though, loved the documentary.  Hope to catch them on tour.  Their Wembley Stadium concert video was great.

But you're supposed to get rich and famous making songs about how awful your life is and how depressed you are because your parents don't understand you and girls don't like you and school is a drag - and then  keep making those same songs even though you're farking rich and having a great time!

The Wembley Stadium concert, and Back and Forth were awesome. So I will be watching this.

But I think his outlook reinforces the idea that a) major label acts are the only legitimate acts out there, and b) dismisses any bands (and often whole genres of music) for using those tools. Dave is very much the posterboy for "why doesn't rock rock anymore?" by out of touch curmudgeons who don't even try to look for new music. If record companies don't invest in rock anymore, it's because those purists are quick to dismiss anyone that thinks outside their narrow box.

If a band used pro tools and isn't the band on the album...Dave has a point.  They aren't a legitimate band.  They didn't actually play (or in most cases today), write the music.

I don't think the FF feel major labels are the only legitimate band-makers.  DG has said many times, if you pick up a guitar and play it, you can be the next big rock band.  It has nothing to do with major labels.  Major labels not signing anyone are a sign of the times. In fact, I think everyone pretty much accepts the fact that with the internet you don't need the labels.  In fact, &*$% the labels.  DG only makes money now because of who he is...  We all know that major labels pretty much steal the artists money and force them into draconian contracts.  The only reason why these lame ass, electronic, alt pop bands are making it is because the record labels all ghost write their songs.

I'm inclined to agree on ghostwritten/performed bands, though I'm skeptical of how common this is (or that it's at all a new phenomenon.)... but even then, why does anyone who uses electronics on their album disqualify them as a real band? Is electronic music therefore not music? This is what I'm getting at. It's a very closeminded outlook and as much as I loathe the term, very much a Rockist outlook.

I look at it as if the rappers are admitting they're "dropping a deuce" on the public and then their fans hand over all their moneys anyway.
