Dave Grohl Recalls Bruce Springsteen’s Secret Letter About Foo Fighters
Dave Grohl recently gave an interview to The Age and recalled the time he got a letter from Bruce Springsteen about Foo Fighters.
Dave Grohl is a musician known for his tenure with the alternative rock band Foo Fighters. Before forming Foo, Grohl was the drummer of the iconic grunge band Nirvana. He founded Foo Fighters after Nirvana’s disbandment as a solo project in 1994. Since that day, he has been the singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter of the band.
Apart from his career in the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl also contributes to other music projects, mostly as a drummer and songwriter. Moreover, he is the co-founder of the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, in which he plays the drums. Recently, the Foo Fighters frontman is getting ready to release a new book, ‘The Storyteller: Tales Of Life And Music,’ where he tells stories from his musical career.
During an interview with The Age, Dave Grohl talked about his upcoming book and recalled the time Bruce Springsteen wrote him a letter. He stated that Springsteen watched them play ‘My Hero,’ and their audience sang along. According to Grohl, Springsteen pointed out the most important aspect of being a musician; ‘for the audience to look to you and see themselves, just as you look at the audience and see yourself.’
Dave Grohl told The Age that:
“I remember getting this letter from Bruce Springsteen after we played a show … He watched us play ‘My Hero,’ and the audience sang along, and he said, ‘that’s what it’s all about: for the audience to look to you and see themselves, just as you look at the audience and see yourself.”
