Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has slammed bands for using drum machines, saying it has “robbed” drummers of their personality.
“All that shit ruins music these days,” he told The Sun . “Drum machines work for pop artists but when it comes to rock ‘n’ roll – don’t fuck with the human element.”
He also said Foo Fighters recorded their recent album ‘Wasting Light’ in his garage to escape such modern production.
“I had favourite drummers because of their inconsistencies,” Grohl said. “Modern production has robbed drummers of personalities and it really pisses me off.”
Foo Fighters are set to appear at the iTunes Festival in London on Monday (July 11).
