Dave Grohl has opened up about his experience of homeschooling during the pandemic in a new interview with the BBC.
Grohl appeared on the BBC as he was promoting Foo Fighters new album ‘Medicine At Midnight’.
He was asked about how he has coped with homeschooling as Grohl has three children.
“My kids know who I am, OK? I’ve read my report cards to my kids before, so they’re not necessarily going to come to me for anything academic – they just don’t.”
“I could be a cheerleader, I could make you a great breakfast and I could make you smile before you start your day, but you don’t necessarily want me in your history lessons, you don’t necessarily want me helping you with trigonometry.”
Dave Grohl was then asked to offer some “musical inspiration” for children stuck at home.
“Wow, well you’re going to want to get The Beatles‘ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s” (Lonely Hearts Club Band) as he believes that record “still connects the way it did the day it came out”.
He then suggested AC/DC’s ‘Back In Black’ saying “that is rock and roll drumming 101.”
For his third recommendation, Grohl said “I like myself, a little party every now and then. I do like to dance, I mean come on, let’s just go with Saturday Night Fever.”
“Look, if you put Saturday Night Fever on, it’s going to feel like Saturday night, but it could be a Monday morning. So I would have to go with those three albums. It’s a good way to start.”
The Beatles, AC/DC and the Saturday Night Fever albums are a great suggestion from Grohl.
It has emerged that the Foo Fighters new record, is currently outselling all other albums in the UK top 10. You can check out the title track below.
