Dave Grohl Says ‘No Son Of Mine’ Was Inspired By Motörhead’s Lemmy
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has revealed that the band’s new song “No Son Of Mine” was inspired by late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
In a new interview with OK! Magazine, Grohl revealed several details about the band’s upcoming new album, Medicine At Midnight, which is set to drop on February 5.
“[It started out with] this country swing to it, but then we decided for something a bit more aggressive, and it turned into these chunky riffs,” Grohl said about “No Son of Mine.” “I wish Lemmy were alive to hear it, because he would see how much an influence he’s been to me.”
Foo Fighters dropped “No Son of Mine” on January 1 as the second single from Medicine At Midnight. They also performed the song on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last week.
In a separate interview with Classic Rock magazine, Grohl recalled visiting Lemmy’s apartment, which he described as “f**king disugsting.”
“I was shocked at how f**king disgusting it was,” Grohl said. “These aisles of magazines and VHS tapes, stacked three to four feet high, Lemmy sitting on the couch, in his black bikini underwear with a spiderweb on them, after just dyeing his hair black, doing a phone interview, with a video game on pause on the television.”
