One of the greatest driving force names in rock scene in the last 30 years, described this past week Arctic Monkeys as: “They are fucking awesome. They’re taking over America,”
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl had some high praise for Arctic Monkeys and Alex Turner : “The American audiences fucking love them. Alex Turner, fuck yeah, he’s a rock star. I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.”
We don’t think that at this time, Arctic Monkeys can be “self -destruct”. At this point the band are in good shape and with a maturity that only allows foreseeing good things in the future.
Grohl also shared his theory that “People have forgotten what it’s like to really rock out because they spend all day in front of a freakin’ computer”, which he claims “they hail as the new god”.
Foo Fighters announced plans for a 2015 tour on UK , for promoting their new album “Sonic Highways”.
