Dave Grohl had planned to play on Boygenius’ album, but he had fallen asleep and didn’t show up to the studio.
One day Dave Grohl pressed snooze instead of joining Boygenius in the studio. Phoebe Bridgers (and her teammates) recently spoke to NME and revealed that the Foo Fighters frontman and the trio had a “ missed connection » when recording The Record: “ There was this missed connection where Dave was actually supposed to come to the studio and play on (the album). Then he forgot to get up or something, and we didn’t meet. »
In the interview, Bridgers discussed the fact that she and her colleagues Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus performed ” Satanist » alongside Grohl during their concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Halloween: “ It was actually perfect timing, full circle, to have him play on that song because we knew we wanted the drums to be crazy on that song. »
During the interview, Bridgers also shared that she and Grohl met backstage at a Billie Eilish concert, calling him ” coolest guy ever “.
“ I was messaging people saying, “I met Dave Grohl, and he exceeds every expectation of a rock star in the world.”Bridgers said. I think as a group we’re looking for that a lot: Who’s living their life the way we want to age and live our lives? »
Boygenius received critical acclaim for his album The Record, which even reached the second place on the list of the 100 best albums of 2023 by WECB. “ Whether it’s against the backdrop of folk, grungy or Simon and Garfunkel, each song maintains an intimacy that makes you feel included – and that’s the whole point, after all. “, we can read in a review of the album.
