Foo Fighters released Medicine at Midnight on Friday, and we gave a bunch of copies away. Now, it’s time to dig into the new Foo tunes.
“No Son of Mine,” which was released as a single back on New Year’s Day, pays tribute to Lemmy Kilmister. Dave Grohl has never made secret his reverence for the late Motörhead frontman. His living situation, however, is a different story. In an interview with Classic Rock magazine, Grohl recounted a visit to Lemmy’s apartment:
“I was shocked at how f**king disgusting it was. These aisles of magazines and VHS tapes, stacked three to four feet high, Lemmy sitting on the couch, in his black bikini underwear with a spiderweb on them, after just dyeing his hair black, doing a phone interview, with a video game on pause on the television.”
Now THAT’S a mental image. And this was at 11:00 in the morning! Now, did Lemmy offer Dave some Jack Daniels? Of course he did. And did Dave say: “Sure!” You bet. Dig into the rest of the interview here, and check out “No Son Of Mine” below.
