Grohl Says Foo Fighters Working on Album
Foo Fighters frontman and Sound City director Dave Grohl spent his Friday night (February 8th) doing an “AMA” — Ask Me Anything — session on Reddit. Among the many topics covered, he revealed that the Foo Fighters are already working on a new record.
A confused fan wondering about the status of the band asked, “Are you guys on hiatus or are you planning on recording another album any time soon?” Grohl responded, “Like Pat Smear says. We’re not on hiatus. We’re on “I hate us” and yes, we are already writing the new record.”
During the session he also revealed that he wants to host Saturday Night Live. When a Redditor asked if he plans to go on the show as a host, Grohl responded, “Hosting SNL is the last item on my bucket list — so we’ll see what happens.”
In other Dave Grohl news, the rocker will join Chris Tucker as a presenter at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards which airs on February 23rd on IFC. They join Fred Armisen and Sofia Coppola who are also set to be present, along with former SNL cast member Andy Samberg who will host.
