Foo Fighters have been a household name in the world of rock music for around sixteen years now and are hoping to release their seventh album this year. It would be fair to assert that their previous two efforts have been slightly disappointing for the hardcore fan as apart from a few decent singles, the music has become stale. Despite this, the Foos’ have generally sold more albums with each new record, arguably because their music has become increasingly radio friendly.
I have never been a huge Foo Fighters fan. I honestly felt Dave Grohl was a bit of a hack. I have always felt that the very essence of some rock groups is in their acoustic abilities. It can be easy to go out and play with loud and barely tuned guitars and sound fairly good. It’s another thing to go out and strip your songs down to finely tuned acoustical instruments.
