DAVE GROHL Says He Suffers From Social Anxiety

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS frontman Dave Grohl confessed in a new interview with Gold Derby that he suffers from social anxiety and is nervous about attending this year's Emmy Awards. The FOO FIGHTERS' HBO documentary series "Sonic Highways", which Grohl directed, is up for four awards at the September 20 ceremony.

Grohl explained: "It's just going to be such a crazy night, I just can't imagine. I think I'll feel like that kid who is the new kid at school, the first day at school. I'll probably just sit down, with my back up against the wall, just nervous, and waiting to see who is going to want to talk to me. I have a little bit of social anxiety. It might seem hard to imagine, but in rooms like that, I kind of clam up. I mean put me at the fucking Grammys, and I know everybody there, and I've got a bottle of whiskey in my hands the whole time, but we'll see what happens."

Grohl's bottle of whiskey has come in handy in other social situations, as he explained earlier this year: "Whenever I showed up at a festival, the first thing I'd do is grab a bottle of whiskey and go knocking on doors to see who the funniest people are. You'd be surprised who the real fucking nutcases are."

"Sonic Highways" is nominated for "Outstanding Informational Series", "Outstanding Directing", "Outstanding Sound Mixing" and "Outstanding Sound Editing".

It's competing in all those categories except "Informational Series" against "Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck", the documentary on Dave Grohl's late NIRVANA bandmate.
