Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl: “Wolf Alice were scared of us”

The bands shared an LA recording studio earlier this year

Dave Grohl has said Wolf Alice were “scared of” Foo Fighters when the two bands shared a recording studio earlier this year.

Speaking to NME in today’s (October 13) cover story, the Foo Fighters frontman reflects on the “open-door policy” in the studio when recording the band’s new album ‘Concrete And Gold’.

Remarking on their time in LA’s star-studded EastWest studios, he said: “When you’re in a studio like that and Rufus Wainwright is down the hall and the guy from Deep Purple is in the other room and Lady Gaga is wandering around and Wolf Alice were there for a week…I was just doing all this crazy barbecuing and talking to everyone. Gaga would come in and listen to the record. Wolf Alice were scared of us though, I think.”


Wolf Alice recorded part of their latest album ‘Visions Of A Life’ at EastWest studios – catch up with their recent NME cover story here.
