Dave Grohl On Spotify Controversy: Just Listen To The Music

(Radio.com) If you ask an elder statesman of rock a question, be prepared for their bite. At least, that's been the takeaway from this year's interviews with Gene Simmons, Billy Corgan and now Dave Grohl, to name a few.

Grohl, who's developed a reputation as one of rock's nice guys, has been on somewhat of a grumpy roll as of late, taking down one-album anniversary tours and, now, anyone who's complaining about Spotify.

When asked by Digital Spy about Taylor Swift's recent decision to remove her catalog from Spotify-which she explained thoroughly in her TIME cover story-Grohl made it known that he doesn't share her thoughts.

"Me personally?" he said. "I don't f**king care. That's just me, because I'm playing two nights at Wembley next summer. I want people to hear our music, I don't care if you pay $1 or f**king $20 for it, just listen to the f**king song. But I can understand how other people would object to that."

Grohl is much more concerned about giving his fans the best live show possible, believing that's the best way to hear music. Read more here.
