Dave Grohl Resembles His Time In Nirvana To The Beatles’ Ringo Starr


Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl recently spoke to the Guardian about his cultural highlight regarding music, shows, food, and more. As for his latest favorite book, the musician named Paul McCartney’s new release entitled ‘The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present.’ When he mentioned a former Beatles member, Grohl also talked about the band’s documentary and his connection to the drummer Ringo Starr.

During the recording of their final studio album named ‘Let It Be,’ the Beatles came up with an idea to film their creative process that was initially intended to be a one-hour television program called ‘Beatles at Work.’ According to many people who worked with the band during that time, the sessions were quite intense because the band members’ relationship had worsened.

Many years after it was first recorded, a three-part miniseries entitled ‘The Beatles: Get Back‘ was released on Disney+ on November 25, 2021. The documentary featured footage captured for the ‘Let It Be’ film, which revealed the disputes between band members before they disbanded and their mesmerizing chemistry regardless of their personal differences.

During a recent interview, Dave Grohl, who has a close friendship with both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, reflected on the Beatles documentary. The Foo Fighters frontman initially reflected on a book that has been on his radar lately, and it was McCartney’s work named ‘The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present‘ released in November 2021.

After mentioning one former Beatle, Grohl also reflected on their touching documentary and said he loved watching it. Admitting that he focused on Ringo Starr, Grohl admitted that he felt a connection with him after seeing Starr sit behind the drums and watching other band members fight because Dave experienced the same when he was in Nirvana.

The rocker also stated that all he ever wanted to do while the other band members of Nirvana were fighting each other was to play the drums without causing any scene. While Nirvana members weren’t known for having internal disputes, Grohl happened to reveal that they had been through similar things as the Beatles.

About ‘The Lyrics by Paul McCartney,’ Grohl said:

“I’m familiar with every one of Paul McCartney’s songs, and I could probably recite most of them off the top of my head, but to have this new perspective coming from the writer, explaining the songs himself, is really rewarding. It humanizes the whole process. I did love the Beatles documentary ‘Get Back’ too. I watched Ringo the entire time: I know what it’s like to sit on a drum stool and watch a bunch of people argue. All you want to do is play a beat. Come on, f*ck it, no more words!”
