December ’14 Q feature – points of interest

The newest issue of Q hits newstands on Tuesday & carries a 9 page feature on the band by Keith Cameron (who’s been interviewing Dave since the Nirvana days) with pics by Ross Halfin.

The bulk of interviews took place during the run of  Holy Shits gigs in London, so thanks to HBO embargoes the band found themselves unable to talk as freely about the series as they’d like, despite that it’s still a great read.  Here are the points I found of most interest:

 

  • Dave is planning on a 20th anniversary re-enactment of Foo Fighters first tour supporting Mike Watt.  Visiting the same venues and insisting the band will even use the same tiny van.
  • The Seattle Sonic Highways track ‘Subterranean’ is in Taylor’s words “Dark and sad, it’s about the end of something.” and contains the lines “I’ve been diggin’ in down inside/Nothing left within, I’ve been mined” and “You might think you know me but I know damn well you don’t.”
  • Chicago, Seattle, and Washington DC were chosen as venues for Sonic Highways due to the band’s personal history with the cities, while Nashville, Austin and New Orleans were chosen because the band have no connection to them.  LA was a no-brainer as the band all live there but Dave’s original plan changed and the pivotal figure in the episode is Pat Smear; “We walked around his old neighbourhood and he told me about going to see The Runaways… how he and Darby Crash met through a mutual speed dealer… chasing Freddie Mercury around the Sunset Marquis… his life is so extraordinary.”

 

You can download the issue or order a physical copy from Q’s website: http://www.qthemusic.com/6108/q341-on-sale-now/ and over the next few weeks Q will be uploading video interviews with the band at QThe Music.com
