Dave Grohl does it again

Recommended Posts

Didn't enjoy the second one as much as the first but there just weren't any bands featured that I have real interest in so not surprising. Coincidentally I didn't think the resulting song performed at the end was as good as the last one either.

Is it straight to iPlayer or does the BBC transmit it on a "normal" channel first?

Sorry, I wasn't aware I wasn't allowed to have a differing opinion.

I'll edit my post for you shall I?

I suspect that most BCers spotted that my comment was intended to be humorous. And therefore not be taken seriously.

I didn't really think it necessary to splash the smileys about, but since you ask: ;) ;) ;) :D :D :D :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :yarr:

Enjoy!

Caught it yesterday afternoon. Looks like Ep 1 & 2 had an airing last Sunday on BBC4, then episodes 3-6 will be iPlayer-only, rounding out the series with Ep 7 & 8 in December on BBC4 again, or so I am lead to believe.

So far, its been an entertaining and informative series with some really good interviews with musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds and genres. I though the Nashville episode was fascinating (not a huge fan of C&W music in general, but have to admit, the musicianship and production are top-notch).

Anyway, horses for courses as always

Nashville best episode for me so far, Funny about the punks and country comment in the program I've always found it true too.

Great seeing Steve Earle would have loved to have seen Hank 3, he always has something to say about Music Row.

Really is a great series. Much appreciation to the op for the heads up.
So if you've not seen it and are interested in music these really are worth a watch.

Yes agreed brilliant series I saw the first two on BBC4 I heard then it's gone to another channel, is that right?

AFAIK, the next four are all iPlayer-only episodes. The last two should then be on BBC4 in December

I got the 'Sonic Highways' album yesterday. Eight very nice tracks (if you like the Foos that is).

Cool - I'll be watching that later.

Love the album as well - some great playing on there (although the bass lacks definition IMHO, as with most modern productions).

Proof that you can make a good rock record in 2014. Sure, it's nothing new, but who cares? Great songs played well....love it! :)

Ep 5 - did I spot some serious Ric abuse around the 25 min mark?

Apparently that's the best sound it has to offer!
