Foo Fighters man to pick up gong next month in London
Dave Grohl is to be crowned Godlike Genius at next month’s Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony in London.
Watch a video interview with him on the right of your screen now.
Giving his reaction to the award that recognises his stellar career in music so far, Grohl told NME: “I don’t think I’m godlike or a genius. It’s flattering. It’s a nice thing to be acknowledged for doing something you love to do, but in truth I don’t consider it a body of work because I don’t consider it work.”
The Shockwaves NME Awards take place on February 23, after the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour, featuring Crystal Castles, Magnetic Man, Everything Everything and The Vaccines, takes place across the country.
