Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl Rightly Shits On ‘Glee’
You’ve got to love Dave Grohl; the dude was in Scream and Nirvana, and Them Crooked Vultures is fucking awesome, no matter what you may think. He also did the ProBot project which featured Lemmy, King Diamond, Tom G. Warrior, Wino from Saint Vitus, and Cronos of Venom. Plus, the Foo Fighters are kind of awesome, if only because its the one band your girl likes that you can actually stand.
Today, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Dave at SXSW, which I wish I were at. And guess what? He fucking hates that show “Glee” too, and will never let anything he was ever involved with end up on that show, regurgitated by a bunch of people in their 20s pretending they’re in their teens.
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking ‘Glee.’ And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show … fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee,’” Dave told THR. “The ‘Glee’ guy, what a fucking jerk.
“Slash was the first one,” he continues. “[Ryan Murphy] wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate fucking musicals. It’s worse than ‘Grease.’’ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they fucking do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes … ’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee.’ Me included.”
