Foo Fighters Resentment

(Gibson) Though their new album has just hit no. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic, the Foo Fighters aren't completely in their comfort zone. Just a few weeks before Dave Grohl and company released the hit Wasting Light album, they unveiled Back and Forth, a documentary by Oscar-winning filmmaker James Moll that revealed several uncomfortable and painful pieces of the group's past. Now, the band find themselves answering as many questions about former drummers as they do their latest single.

One of the metaphorical nerves that was exposed was guitarist Chris Shiflett's resentment when original Foo guitarist Pat Smear rejoined the band in 2006.

"I was wary of Pat," Shiflett told the New Zealand Herald. "I think anybody would have been. He almost came back after I'd been in the band a month. And I would have been out at that point; it wasn't like now. I didn't have my footing. So that was my frame of mind: here's this guy who wants my job and my job is how I feed my children and pay my rent. So my job's important to me for lots of reasons, musically and otherwise." more on this story
