Dave Grohl. Godlike? Genius?

Dave Grohl

According to Shockwave NME Awards, yes he is. According to Grohl himself, no. The Godlike Genius award will be handed to him in February, and here’s what he had to say about it:

“I don’t think I’m godlike or a genius,” he told NME.com. “It’s flattering. It’s a nice thing to be acknowledged for doing something you love to do, but in truth I don’t consider it a body of work because I don’t consider it work.”

Isn’t it nice to see someone humble for a change? Imagine Axl Rose or Serj Tankian getting the award. Imagine their speach. I guess the universe would implode as a counter reaction to it. Good thing we have Dave Grohl.


2011: The albums to watch out for (Pt. 2)

Hello and welcome to part 2 of my 2011: The albums to watch out for feature. I know, I know, not a very catchy name is it? But in my defence, I haven’t stopped drinking since Christmas Eve and I’m pretty sure I’ve now killed all but one of my remaining brain cells.

If you haven’t read part one yet, why not? Go do it now. And then come back and read part 2 after the jump.


Shocking: Dave Grohl is a movie star

Dave Grohl as Satan

Dave Grohl will be appearing in another film — apparently he has a cameo in the new Muppets feature where he replaces Animal on the drum set. Hm, first The Pick of Destiny, now The Muppets. Who knows, maybe in a few years, he scores a deal with Disney and appears as a singing animal in a Bambi sequel, Bambi 3D.

Seriously now, I did like him as Satan. Here’s what the news source had to say:

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will have a cameo appearance in the new Muppets film, NME.com reports that the singer-guitarist-drummer is going to sit in for usual Muppet drummer Animal, who will be out attending anger management courses.

Grohl won’t be the only guest star in the Muppets film, which is due next year. Lady Gaga, Jack Black and Jean-Claude Van Damme will also make cameos in the movie, which stars How I Met Your Mother‘s Jason Segel. The sitcom star also is co-writing the film.

Lady Gaga, Jason Segel? Thanks, I’ll pass.
