Liam Gallagher On Dave Grohl: ‘He’s A Mad Songwriter’

Oasis icon Liam Gallagher spoke to The 2 Johnnies Podcast and opened up about his collaboration with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl for his new record. Gallagher talked about the musician and praised his talent as a songwriter while telling the story of how they teamed up with each other.

Following his latest record, ‘Why Me? Why Not.,’ released on September 20, 2019, Gallagher’s longtime fans started to wait impatiently for the singer’s next solo album thanks to this album’s well-crafted sounds and lyrics. Thankfully, he didn’t give an extended break to his recording sessions and started to work on his upcoming third solo record. The singer will release ‘C’mon You Know’ on May 27, 2022, and he had a surprise for his fans.

Before the album’s release, Gallagher dropped a single named ‘Everything’s Electric’ on February 4, 2022, featuring Grohl as co-writer and drummer. The frontman told how they decided to create a song and revealed that record producer Greg Kurstin called him at the end of the sessions for the album. Kurstin stated that he was working on something with Grohl and wanted him to listen to it. So, Gallagher went back to the studio to check it out.

Gallagher loved it so much that they wished to collaborate with Grohl for ‘Everything’s Electric,’ which they created separately without being in the same studio. The Oasis icon emphasized the Foo Fighters’ frontman’s being a mad songwriter and said he couldn’t refuse a talented person like Grohl. Consequently, their project and harmony received positive reviews, which can be a reason for their future projects.

In Gallagher’s words, he said:

“At the end, we finished the record and exalted or not. I got a phone call from Greg Kurstin. He’d done some works on the last album, and he was with Dave Grohl. He said, ‘Look, we have got something working on, this tune. Here’s where we are at.’ I went back to the studio and listened to it. I thought, ‘You’re not going to refuse Dave Grohl; he’s a mad songwriter.’
