Foo Fighters will host a special six-part series on Radio Nova to mark the release of their tenth album and a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination.
They start on Saturday February 27th at 6pm (repeated Sunday night at 9pm).
During the series, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Rami Jaffee will break out from the band and explore their personal inspirations, spotlight influential artists on their careers and play some of their biggest hits.
In each episode the lads chat to their rock star friends and reflect on the creative process behind the new album “Medicine At Midnight”.
Dave Grohl: “We’re going to listen to some music. I’ll tell you some stories… play you some songs that inspired me when I was young … kind of take you from the beginning all the way up to today.”
In the first show, drummer Taylor Hawkins takes us inside the “Hawkes Nest” with guests Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney from Jane’s Addiction. Taylor also plays hits from Pink Floyd, Alanis Morrisette, The Police and ELO.
Radio Nova CEO, Kevin Branigan said, “We thought having Bruce Springsteen host his own show was a coup, but Radio Nova has now become THE place the world’s biggest artists come to take over the Irish airwaves.
This is one hell of a radio show, full of huge hits and will give the Foo fans a chance hear all about the band’s career directly from the members themselves.”
