Ex-Nirvana man hits out at musical TV show
Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl has hit out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy.
Grohl said that the musical TV show was “not my thing” and slammed the chief behind the programme for his attitude towards signing up bands.
The singer/guitarist told Hollywoodreporter.com: “You [bands] shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee.”
He added: “And then the guy [Murphy] who created Glee is so offended that we’re [Foo Fighters] not, like, begging to be on his fucking show. Fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.”
When asked if he had watched the show, Grohl said: “I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing.”
Grohl joins ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash in slamming Glee. Earlier this year it was revealed that the guitarist wouldn’t let the show’s creators use a song by his old band, labelling the programme “worse than Grease.”
Grohl was speaking at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, where Foo Fighters played a surprise gig.
