FOO FIGHTERS frontman and former NIRVANA drummer Dave Grohl will be appearing on Fuse TV's heavy metal program "Uranium" this Friday, March 19. Dave stops by to talk with host Juliya about all things metal in honor of his critically acclaimed "old-school metal" project PROBOT. Also stopping by to take part in the interview are metal legends Wino (ST. VITUS, THE OBSESSED, PLACE OF SKULLS, SPIRIT CARAVAN), Eric Wagner (TROUBLE), and Snake (VOIVOD). In the interview, Dave talks about everything from how and why he started the project, his influences, the video for "Shake Your Blood" and the Suicide Girls burlesque troupe. who appear in the video, and what it was like to work with his heroes, like MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy.
"[Lemmy]'s one of the most intelligent people I've ever met," Dave said. "Super funny, but he has moments of dead seriousness when you're talking about certain authors or history, he's an expert. But like [Wino] said, Lemmy's pretty much a stand-up comedian. He was so pro in the studio, I was so nervous I actually had this one song I was gonna give to him but I wasn't sure about it, like 'Oh is it good enough?' So he shows up at the studio and he says 'Who wants a drink?' So I was, like, sure I'll try to keep up with you so he goes straight to sink and pulls a dirty pint glass out and fills it up with Jack [Daniels] and a little coke and we sat around talking. After a couple of those, I thought 'Shit I got to get him in front of a mic before he falls out.' I said, 'So what do you think about the song?' And he wrote two different songs and said, 'Tell me which one you like.'
"To stand there listening to playback with him singing his song ideas in my ear, I was like is this really happening? Lemmy is singing like in my ear. He sang it twice we had to crank the mic up like this (adjusts mic really high to aim down) and just stood there with the paper. Then he played bass maybe two takes and then it was done. And after it was all done he was like, 'Who wants to go look at some tits?' He is a great man."
"Uranium" airs on Fuse TV at 8:00 p.m. EST and 5:00 p.m. PST.
