At a recent TV Critics Association event in Los Angeles, California, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl voiced his opinion on "singing competitions":
I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you're not a good singer. Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about.

Dedicated Foo Fighters fans living in Richmond, Virginia, took to crowdfunding platform Crowdhoster to try and get the band to come play where they hadn't in some 15 years. Because the Foo Fighters are amazing: they have agreed to play.

The Foo Fighters will be releasing their new album this fall. The release will coincide with Dave's new HBO Show.
One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.

Looks like Dave Grohl will be getting his own HBO Series.
Expanding upon the ideas explored in Grohl's acclaimed Sound City documentary, the series will see the Foo Fighters' frontman visit, and record music at, some of the world's most iconic recording studios. Grohl will also conduct interviews for the series, speaking with some of the artists who have recorded at each facility.

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters recently recalled the first time he heard Lorde's "Royals," saying it was "it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop." He went on to say Lorde has "something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic," which is why she was one of the musicians selected alongside St. Vincent, Joan Jett, and Kim Gordon to front Nirvana at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

A new interview with Nate Mendel (Sunny Day Real Estate, Foo Fighters) kind of closes the door on any more Sunny Day Real Estate music.
We're not doing anything. We had an 'interesting' reunion experience a couple of years ago where we got together out of the blue and patched up old relationships and differences and just wanted to do some reunion shows. It turned out great and it was a lot of fun and we sort of accidentally wrote a song and we were like, 'OK, why don't we try to do a record?' We spent a lot of time writing an album's worth of songs and then went to record it in Los Angeles - all of the writing had been done up in the North West where most of the guys are located - and...

Ben Gibbard was one of many musicians to audition for The Postal Service - watch some of the other musicians who tried out - like Tom DeLonge. And Nate Mendel. And a bunch others that I don't want to give away.

A while back we posted a list of the 30 wealthiest drummers, and there's also a list of the wealthiest lead singers too.
Some Stand-OutsDave Grohl - 225 million
Gwen Stefani - 80 million
Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge - 60 million each
Billie Joe Armstrong - 55 million
Zack de la Rocha - 50 million
Chester Bennington - 25 million

They forgot to include Hayley Williams on this list, however, according to another article from the same site, she's worth around 8 million dollars. Fred Durst is on the list for having 8 million dollars (he's #84).
