Foo Fighters front-man Dave Grohl is not a fan of TV talent shows like American Idol and The Voice. Grohl believes aspiring musicians should be encouraged, not criticized. He tells NME, "That's what bums me out about those shows where people are judged so harshly by f*cking musicians that hardly even play an instrument on their own f*cking albums."
Grohl has often said that he's in favor of young musicians gathering together and not being afraid of sucking. He says he wouldn't be excited about seeing his daughter in that situation:
"I swear to God, if my daughter walked up onstage and sang her heart out and some f*cking billionaire looked at her and said, 'No, I'm sorry you're not any good,' I'd f*cking throttle that person, I swear to God. Who the f*ck are you to say what's good or bad?"
In the same interview, Grohl discussed the possibilities of a Nirvana reunion and what it's like playing with Paul McCartney.
