Well, somebody had to say it! And, by golly, it just had to be Dave Grohl! Really, he just adds to the chorus of criticism over TV singing competition shows. The Foo Fighters front man said the popular prime-time programs are “not what music’s about”. As he is in the throws of a documentary series on HBO about Foo Fighters’ new album, he’s addressing his concerns of how TV misrepresents music. He also says the competitions provide a false sense of what it takes to be a musician. At a press even for TV Critics Association Grohl said he doesn’t want his daughter to think you need to stand in a line to get some celebrity judge’s approval. Grohl and Foo Fighters are the focus of a forthcoming HBO series called “Sonic Highway” about the band recording their new album in various studios around the country.
