Dave Grohl recalled the moment he grew into being a confident and capable frontman. The Foo Fighters leader appeared on BBC Reel Stories, with Kerrang! magazine transcribing his chat for its readers. Grohl, who came to fame behind d the drumkit as one-third of Nirvana, admitted it took him time to grow into himself as a center stage singer/guitarist, revealing, "For years, I was so self-conscious onstage, like, ​'I know I don’t sound good, but how do I look? How do I hold my guitar? Do I do it like this? How do I move?' I wasn’t ever in the moment, I was just so afraid. And then something clicked, where I was like, ​'Y'know what? I’m not wasting this moment on being nervous, or scared. I’m gonna walk out there like Julius f***ing Caesar.'"

Grohl credits his mom for his legendary work ethic over the decades, explaining "Being raised by a public school teacher, their pay is like, nothing. It’s a crime. So I would watch my mother just go from paycheck, to paycheck, to paycheck, to paycheck. Our heat would get turned off, the phone would get turned off, the electricity would get turned off. There were some nights when it was like, ​'What’s for dinner?' And she’s like, ​'Umm, we have two eggs. . . scrambled egg sandwiches!’ So this work ethic is instilled in you, where you realize that in order to survive, you have to work."

Back in 2009, Alice In Chains recorded the majority of its Black Gives Way To Blue album at Dave Grohl's Northridge, California recording facility, Studio 606. Alice drummer Sean Kinney told us that working at their buddy's place made all the difference in the world: ["Dave's got a. . . he's done a thing or two in his life, y'know? And he's such an inspirational, cool dude, too. He's just not like a rock dork that treats people like s*** because he did well. He's really down to Earth, great guy, and so it's nice to be around people like that."] SOUNDCUE (:15 OC: . . . people like that)
