Dave Grohl Talks His TV Series, Blasts Singing Competition Shows

(Radio.com) A new Foo Fighters album grows ever closer, accompanied by an HBO series in October - and according to Dave Grohl, it'll be a nice alternative to the singing competitions of today.

Grohl addressed the Television Critics Association at an event in Beverly Hills last week (July 10) to reveal what will go into his eight-part series titled Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, airing on HBO starting in October.

"Music can seem a little one dimensional… but when you get a little deeper into the artist or the song, it creates this emotional connection," Deadline reports Grohl said.

The series will explore multiple American cities, including Chicago, Nashville and Austin. In each Grohl will interview a local musician and record a song in a local studio. Rolling Stone reports that he referred to it as "a love letter to the history of American music."

Grohl seems to see it as an alternative to the mass of competition singing shows on the airwaves, of which he is not a fan. "I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you if you're not a good singer," The Wrap reports Grohl said. "Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about." more on this story
