As a way to mark the band’s 20th anniversary Dave considered re-recording the debut album:

At one point I thought ‘You know what would be funny? To re-record the first Foo Fighters record as the band we are now’ – cos the first record isnt the Foo Fighters it’s just me. So what if, for the 20th anniversary, we went in and re-recorded – same songs, same arrangements, in sequence – but as Foo Fighters 2014? Taylor was like, ‘Are you out of your fucking mind?! That’s the worst idea ever! People would fucking hate it!’ And Pat said, ‘That’s exactly why we should do it!’

Dont expect the band to perform the first album live though:

“I think that’s a shitty idea! I dont get why people do that. We’ve already written that one off.”

More Them Crooked Vultures is always a possibility (not so much Probot):

“I would love to make another Vultures record. I think our biggest hurdle is just a logistic one, that the three of us are all pretty busy. Yeah, I mean, I’m trying to think of things that I would revisit.  I get asked to do another Probot record all the time, but I can’t do it.  Those were my favourite singers.”

Headlining Glastonbury 2015?

“I mean, it’s an iconic festival,” smiles Grohl. “Yeah, I just tell everyone if they need a band, we’re pretty good. they should give us a call. See what happens.”
