Compiled from Dave’s recent interviews here are some song titles recently recorded for Foo Fighters’ album #7.
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN (w/ bass & ‘creepy accordian’ from Krist Novoselic) “It’s probably the darkest song on the album”
A MATTER OF TIME “One of the sweetest melodies I’ve ever written, but it has one of the heaviest riffs”
THESE DAYS (Dave thinks it may be the best song he’s ever written)
DEAR ROSEMARY (w/ vocals from Bob Mould ) “It sounds like Bob and I wrote a song for Husker Du 20 years ago and the Foo Fighters are covering it”
MISS THE MISERY
ARLANDRIA (called ‘Orlandria’ by Q magazine but more likely to be ‘Arlandria’ after the neighbourhood in Virginia) .

Lemmy is the latest musician to receive a grilling in Q magazine’s ‘Cash For Questions’ feature, where readers submit the questions & get £25 for their trouble. (Dave himself took part in the feature back in 2003)
I put a question to Lemmy about Dave:
A Joe Strummer signature Fender Telecaster guitar signed by Foo Fighters will benefit the family of late Sub Pop executive Andy Kotowicz. In October, the indie label’s vice president of sales and director of marketing was in a fatal car accident. He was 37.

My years of transcribing, editing, reading & posting articles on this website has made me realise that when giving interviews Dave does tend to touch on the same subjects and references now & again. I’m not suggesting he’s boring – or that it’s even his fault (It’s probably more to do with journalists asking variations of the same questions time and time again).
So as the new record nears completion & Dave gears up to face another round of journalists dictaphones, play New Album Interview Bingo & see how many you can cross off…
