the life and times of dave grohl

I’ve always felt like a little bit of an outsider. I mean, you meet people in your life that you connect to immediately and they usually stick with you for the rest of your life. The rest of the time you feel alone. Whether it’s musically or personally I can make friends with anybody, but at the end of the day I only feel like there’s a few people that I really know, or know me. I’m sure a lot of people feel like that.

I would die tonight
For you to feel alive’

Flashed before my eyes
And nothin’ mattered anymore
I looked into the sky ‘

What do you do when all your enemies are friends’

And save you from yourself
You get so lost inside your head Like no one’

Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose’

In the morning wind we’re through and tomorrow rescues you,
I will say goodnight’

So I can breathe you in
Hold you in’

The secrets that you keep are ever ready
Are you ready?’

do I stay or run away
and leave it all behind?’

Something never comes never leads to nothing’

Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright’

how was I to know
you’d steal the show?’

Killing Joke “Eighties” (1984)

From Night Time (1985) and one of Killing Joke’s go-to singles which sealed the deal on the band’s take on current events and politics. In 1991, Nirvana released Smells Like Teen Spirit with “Come As You Are” taking a very similar riff from “Eighties” which had Killing Joke take serious notice and had a back-and-forth with the Seattle grunge trio. More than ten years later, Dave Grohl took time away from the Foo Fighters to record drums for Killing Joke’s 2003 self-titled release. What isn’t mentioned that much was that it’s possible Nirvana took from Killing Joke whom debatably have ultimately taken from The Damned who created the original riff for “Life Goes On” on 1982’s Strawberries.

…so, that happened. Welcome to the best night of my fucking life. Waited 8 years to be literally 5 feet away from my favourite dorks on the planet. God bless getting to Milton Keynes early enough to be handed inner pit wristbands whilst we were handing the tickets over.

Do not repost or remove the original caption. Only reblog. These are my original photos.

I’m gonna post a bunch over the summer. :)

“I always wanted to think I was an alien, I used to think when I was young that I was adopted by my mother because when they found me in a spaceship and they let me out, I was from a different planet. I wanted to be from a different planet really bad. Every night I used to talk to my real parents and my real family in the skies. I knew that there were thousands of other alien babies dropped off all over the place, and I have met quite a few of them. It’s just something that I’ve always liked to toy with in my mind. It’s really fun to pretend that, you know, there is some special reason for me to be here, and I feel really homesick all the time, and so do the other aliens. And I only have a chance to come across a handful of other aliens throughout the rest of my life.” — Kurt Cobain
