You see, this is why Dave Grohl may actually be our Lord and Savior: in an interview with Delta Sky magazine, naturally, Grohl sounds off on the proliferation of singing competition reality TV shows, saying that such shows are “destroying the next generation of musicians.”
“When I think about kids watching a TV show like American Idol or The Voice, then they think, ‘Oh, okay, that’s how you become a musician, you stand in line for eight f*cking hours with 800 people at a convention center and then you sing your heart out for someone and then they tell you it’s not f*cking good enough,’” Grohl said in the interview. “I swear to God, if my daughter walked up onstage and sang her heart out and some f*cking billionaire looked at her and said, ‘No, I’m sorry you’re not any good,’ I’d f*cking throttle that person, I swear to God. Who the f*ck are you to say what’s good or bad?”
I don’t know about you, but I’d pay good money to watch Dave Grohl and Simon Cowell duke it out in a steel cage. Good money.
