The Beatles Inspired Dave Grohl To Become A Musician

(Classic Rock) Dave Grohl has never hidden his admiration for the Fab Four - and after playing The Beatles' Hey Bulldog during a TV special for the band the Foo Fighters frontman claims he wouldn't even be on stage but for Lennon, Macca and co.

His praise comes hot on the heels of the Grammys at which Grohl labelled Paul McCartney a "groundbreaking visionary". The cover which Grohl played alongside Electric Light Orchestra's Jeff Lynne was performed in front of McCartney, Ringo Starr and Yoko Ono who each appeared to thoroughly enjoy the performance.

Speaking after the show to Rolling Stone Grohl beamed: "If it weren't for The Beatles, I would not be a musician. From a very early age, I loved their groove and their swagger, their grace and their beauty, their dark and their light. The Beatles knew no boundaries, and in that freedom they seemed to define what we now know today as rock and roll, for my parents, for me and for my daughter, too." He had a lot more to say.
