HyperFocal: 0

Yhdysvaltalaisesta rockyhtye Foo Fightersista tunnettu muusikko Dave Grohl on antanut marraskuun 7. päivä järjestetyn ”Bowl For Ronnie” -nimisen hyväntekeväisyystapahtuman yhteydessä videohaastattelun ”The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show” -ohjelmalle, jossa on kertonut omasta suhteestaan Ronnie James Dion musiikkiin. Dave Grohlin mukaan Ronnie James Dio:lla on ollut suuri vaikutus häneen itseensä muusikkona ja Dion legendaarinen ”Holy Diver” on miehen mielestä yksi historian parhaista albumeista. Grohl kertoi aiheesta seuraavaa:

”Well, ’Holy Diver’ is one of the best fucking albums of all time. When I listen to records, I don’t just listen to the vocals; I don’t just listen to the drums — I listen to it as a whole. But an album like that, that’s kind of the perfect record. Vinny Appice’s playing on that fucking album is insane. As a drummer, I listen to that record and it’s, like, I don’t know if it’s composition or if that shit was just coming off the top of his head, but as a drummer, that album is incredibly inspiring and influential. The simplicity of something like that. That’s one of the things I’ve always loved about Dio’s music — it’s not overly complicated or orchestrated; it’s a sum of a few very simple parts, and it’s powerful. And I fucking grew up with that shit. I remember being 13 or 14 years old and seeing ’Stand Up And Shout’ live on ’Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert’ on Friday night. And it makes you want to become a musician. You see something like that and it’s so moving and inspiring that you’re, like, ’Oh my God! That’s what I wanna do for the rest of my life.’ It did that to me.”

Tuosta albumi soimaan viikonlopun kunniaksi:
