Dave Grohl, a rock musician, a singer-songwriter, a Foo Fighters frontman, a Nirvana drummer, a director, recently get intimately talk in nearly 2 hours of an interview with Off Camera, a talk show with photographer/director Sam Jones.

Off Camera spoke with Grohl at length about his various projects. It’s one of the most intimate interviews he’s granted in ages, touching on Sound City, his eclectic approach to songwriting, his work with supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, the birth of the Foo Fighters and more. Grohl also gave a useful advice to young bands/musician. Hear some quotes of his advice:
Just play live. Honestly, if you’re good at what you do people will recognize that. I really believe it, I really believe that going out playing good songs live as a great live band will make you successful. I really think it will, it doesn’t matter if you’re at the shithole down the street or your on the side stage at Bonaroo or you’re headlining Lollapalooza. If you’re a great band with great songs people will notice it. That’s it, that’s all it is, it’s that simple. Fuck product placement and fuckin labels and A&R people and all that bullshit, it doesn’t fuckin matter, I swear to God, it doesn’t matter. If you back that up with the idea that just playing those great songs in your great live band is enough award for you, then you’re fuckin set. But you’ve got to be bad ass, you’ve just got to be really good. It’s the other things that make up for your musical inability.”
