Dave Grohl has expanded his writing beyond what he’s been doing on the Dave’s True Stories Instagram.
The Foo Fighters mastermind wrote an essay for The Atlantic about missing concerts, both as a performer and a fan. Grohl wrote about meeting Bruce Springsteen after The Boss attended one of the Foos’ shows, and how Springsteen wrote a note to him afterwards that said, “When you look out at the audience, you should see yourself in them, just as they should see themselves in you.”
Grohl adds, “I don’t know when it will be safe to return to singing arm in arm at the top of our lungs, hearts racing, bodies moving, souls bursting with life. But I do know that we will do it again, because we have to. It’s not a choice. We’re human. We need moments that reassure us that we are not alone. That we are understood. That we are imperfect. And, most important, that we need each other.”
