Dave Grohl Offers Praise For Post Malone’s Nirvana Tribute
Dave Grohl recently revealed he was initially reluctant to check out Post Malone‘s livestream tribute to Nirvana but was glad when he eventually did.
The Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman said in an interview with ALT 98.7 FM that he was working on a piece for his “Dave’s True Stories” Instagram series when he started getting text messages about Malone’s concert.
“I started getting hit with texts, people texting me, like, ‘Yo, are you watching this Post thing?’ And I’m, like, ‘No, I’m writing right now.’ They’re, like, ‘It’s pretty good.’ I’m, like, ‘Really?’ So I keep on writing. Another text comes in, ‘Dude, are you watching this Post Malone thing?’ And I’m, like, ‘No.’ So finally I tuned it,” Grohl said.
He added, “More than the sound of it and more than the chords and whatever, it just sort of felt good. To me, it didn’t feel weird. They were killing it. So I watched a bunch of it. I was, like, ‘That was really cool.'”
Grohl said he doesn’t get to see other people perform Nirvana songs often and was honored to see Blink-182‘s Travis Barker playing drums to the songs.
Barker, guitarist Nick Mack and bassist Brian Lee joined Malone for the concert, which served as a fundraiser for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund
“He seemed perfectly comfortable with it, and it sounded great,” Grohl said. “Even the die-hard Nirvana people that I know were, like, ‘Dude, he’s kind of killing it right now.'”
