There have been some wacky moments in rock history, mixed with some very epic moments within the studio. The Foo Fighters at one point essentially planned to do all of that, and then some, according to frontman Dave Grohl. 99.9% of the time, the recording process is a process that is meant to allow time to take over, letting the band soak in every possible opportunity to get a particular song write. With that said, there has never been a thought of letting the public in on the process as it’s happening. With the Foo Fighters being the professionals that they are, Grohl hoped to bring the people into the recording process, as it went down.
With plans of making a makeshift studio on stage at the Hollywood Bowl, Grohl revealed this plan as the Foo Fighters are currently days away from releasing their next studio album. Grohl spoke on the matter while guesting on Lars Ulrich’s Beats 1 show It’s Electric!, which in hindsight would have been epic.
“[We were going to] build a recording studio onstage … with isolation booths and a control room with tape reels and the whole deal,” said Grohl.
This news comes just days after previous news had broken that legendary pop artist Justin Timberlake was going to be making an appearance on the new Foo Fighters record, after him and Grohl had spent some nice bro time together. “We’d drink whiskey in the parking lot. He was really, really cool,” said Grohl of his hangouts with Timberlake. “Then the night before his last day, he says, ‘Can I sing on your record? I don’t want to push it, but – I just want to be able to tell my friends.’”
