Dave Grohl Says Foo Fighters Did Things They’re Not Supposed To Do While Recording ‘Medicine At Midnight’ Album

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl spoke in a recent interview with Guitar World and talked about their newest album, Medicine At Midnight.

Back in 2019, Foo Fighters announced that they are recording a new album, and Dave announced that it was over in February 2020, but it was delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak. Fortunately, Medicine At Midnight released in February 2021.

In the conversation, Dave revealed that they have done things they are not supposed to do like galloping flange guitar and doing the Abba beat, but they were pretty okay with it.

Because of the fact that they did what they should not, Medicine At Midnight becomes something that they haven’t done before, according to Dave. Also, Dave mentioned that he wrote all the songs in the album.

Here is what Dave Grohl said:

“Each instrument we put on, we were just sitting on the couch laughing because we’re doing the things we’re not supposed to do.

We’re not supposed to do the galloping flange guitar! We’re not supposed to do the Abba beat! But we’re just like, ‘Fuck, load it up, man!’ And then at the end of the day, we had something we’d never done before.

I basically wrote all of these songs on an acoustic guitar. As a drummer, when you’re jamming with someone, you watch their hand and the accent of the way they strum their guitar.”
