Today I’m going to discuss some music news within the Rock world.
So recently the Infamous Dave Grohl said in an interview that he believes that Rock is not dead and sees what Nirvana was in 1991 in Billie Eilish.
As he said in an interview where he discussed everything from the late Kurt Cobain to the future of Rock ‘N’ Roll.
Speaking about the 17-year-old singer-songwriter, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, he said: “My daughters are obsessed with Billie Eilish. The same thing is happening with her what happened with Nirvana in 1991.
He also quoted “People say, ‘Is rock dead?’ When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, rock and roll are not close to death!”

So with this said and me being a big Foo Fighters/Nirvana fan I thought I’d check out Billie Eilish for myself and I can see why he would say she is like Nirvana.
She’s weird and the music is expressing as much as any other musician known also the 2 music videos I watched (Bury A Friend and When The Party’s Over) we’re definitely out there in a different way it felt like I was watching a Nine Inch Nails Music Video.
And with her new Album only round the corner who knows what’s to come, I will definitely be giving her a look out in the near future.
But maybe this is what Dave Grohl was on about because she’s different to what we’re already getting in the music business in this generation maybe he’s seeing what Nirvana did in the ’90s to what Billie Eilish is doing now.
What do you think? Let’s Discuss
