Foo Fighters - One By One

Foo Fighters : One By One

Dave and the boys make a great album - we knew they had it in them...

The Foo Fighters ' career so far has read like a study in careful competency, generating heat without fire. Dave Grohl is indisputably a man who knows his way around a riff, but he's always seemed too polite to kick out the jams with any real passion.

Foo Fighters - One By One: Wikipedia Album Entry

Near the end of 2001, the band reconvened to record their fourth album. After spending four months in a Los Angeles studio completing the album, Grohl spent some time helping Queens of the Stone Age complete their 2002 album Songs for the Deaf. Once the Queens of the Stone Age album was finished, Grohl, inspired by the sessions, decided to reconvene Foo Fighters to rework a few songs on their album. Instead, they re-recorded nearly all of the album (save "Tired of You") in a ten-day stretch at Grohl's studio in Virginia. The final album was released in October of 2002 under the title One by One. Singles from the album included "All My Life", " Times Like These", "Low", and "Have It All". The band later expressed displeasure with the album. Grohl told Rolling Stone in 2005, "Four of the songs were good, and the other seven I never played again in my life. We rushed into it, and we rushed out of it."
