Dave Grohl Assures Us That Rock Is Not Dead

(Gibson) Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was recently asked if he thought rock and roll was dead. It's not the smartest question to ask a member of two rock titans Nirvana and the Foos.

"I said, 'Dude, ask the 130,000 people who are coming to see us at England's Milton Keynes Bowl in July. Ask the 2,000 people who were drinking and having the night of their life at South by Southwest," Grohl recounted to Billboard.com. He and his band recently hit up SXSW to promote the new documentary about the band, Back and Forth, and their forthcoming album, Wasting Light.

"Just because rock 'n' roll isn't #1 in the commercial mainstream doesn't mean it's gone," he said. "It doesn't mean it's dead. All I know is what rock 'n' roll means to me. It's this living, breathing thing that you can see in someone's eye." more on this story
