Billboard – Dave Grohl

Melinda Newman has interviewed Foo Fighters‘ frontman Dave Grohl regarding his Emmy nod for the HBO documentary series Sonic Highways.

Here is an excerpt:

Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl is used to getting nominated for Grammys, VMAs and other music-related honors. But when he found out that the band’s 8-part HBO musical travelogue, Sonic Highways, had received four Emmy nods, Grohl says he was “blown away.” “The Emmy world is something I never considered. I still don’t know how to process it. It’s so foreign to me.”

The series, which featured Grohl and band plunking down in a city, examining that town’s musical history and then writing a song about it — all in one week — earned sound editing and sound mixing nods, as well as an outstanding directing for nonfiction program nomination for Grohl, and a tip for outstanding informational series or special. The Emmys air live Sept. 20 on Fox, and the band conveniently has that night off from their tour, which will resume Sept. 21 at The Forum in Los Angeles.
