Watch the Throne: Dave Grohl on How the Foos Saved Their Summer
“It’s going to be a pretty awesome moment when I just fucking jump off of the throne and start running.”
Now that things have been progressing, how has Sonic Highways‘ second season been coming along?
Well, we’ve been talking about it. We’re still trying to figure it out. I have a pretty good idea of what I’d like to do. One of the great things about the idea of the series is that there’s opportunity to grow and evolve and change. It doesn’t always have to be [about] the Foo Fighters; it doesn’t always have to be America. You can modify a lot of the moving parts in that series and still work within the basic concept. So I think there are a lot more Sonic Highways to come, but they might not be exactly what you think they’re gonna be. The challenge is trying to keep it alive. I’ve already contacted a ton of musicians to see if they’d be interested in being involved, and every single one of them said yes. And again, it’s all across the board. There are people that I haven’t worked with yet. So we’ll see. I just try to get through every day with this fucking ankle at this point [laughs]. It’s something I look forward to — let’s just say that.
Can you foresee your first gig without the throne?
Deciding when to stop using it will be hard. Can we stop using the throne when I can just stand there? Can we stop using the throne when I can walk around the stage? Can we stop using the throne when I can fucking jump around like a madman like I used to? It’s going to be a pretty awesome moment when the throne comes out, and I just fucking jump off of it and start running. I don’t know when that’s going to be, so I’m keeping the throne for now.
