Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has reacted to some Foo Fighters fans saying he is losing his voice.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: “The week before the tour my four-year-old got f***ing sick, I’m at home with her all week and I’m like, ‘Oh God no, no, no please don’t do it’ but she wants a kiss goodnight every night!
“I try to give her the cheek but she wants the lips and then on the flight over to Germany I start to feel it, I’m like f*** I’m getting a fever, I’m feeling sore.
“Then the next show my throat closes up on me.
“I’ve got a f***ing cold, there’s nothing I can do!”
The 49-year-old rocker – who also has nine-year-old Harper and 12-year-old Violet with his wife Jordyn Blum – says that his ear-melting vocals are thanks to his hero, late Motorhead frontman Lemmy, who influenced a generation of artists with his hoarse vocal styling.
He said: “One of the things we’re most proud of is we’re f***ing raw.
“I don’t want it to sound like the record I want it to sound like Motorhead live at Hammersmith!
“My favourite vocalists are like Lemmy. I’m not a f***ing crooner, I don’t have in-ear monitors, we’re really old school.”
