Dave talks about being very busy during quarantine, interviewing a bunch of rock stars like Steven Tyler, Ringo Starr & The Edge for his new documentary What Drives Us, driving the Foo Fighters around in a van, falling in love with classic rock, learning that The Beatles farted, his friendship with Ringo, finding out he is related to the drummer from X, performing with his 15-year-old daughter Violet, and making a documentary series called From Cradle to Stage with his mom.

    All I want is new brothers to tour with. I’m 33 and not getting any younger…I dream of at least one last shot to make it….damn I miss the good old days, growing older happens way too fast.

    Touring in a van is so fun that it’s even fun to watch. Along those lines, allow me to spam-recommend the high quality documentary videos we’ve made of ourselves scrapping it out on the road. And one day we will play Kimmel…one day!!

    When David Letterman asked Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters to play on the last show..and canceled a tour in Brazil to do it. That’s class and shows really how cool they are. Amazing.

    Touring in a van when you’re broke, and touring in a van when you’re a huge band/millionaire, is two VERY different tours. Haha… speaking from plenty of “broke” experience. CHEERS!
