Triple M set to ‘Rock N Grohl’ with exclusive Foo Fighters takeover
Members of the Foo Fighters will join the Triple M lineup over the next two months in celebration of the American rock band’s latest #1 album.
Medicine at Midnight topped the ARIA Albums Chart last month. Originally scheduled for 2020, the album was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jafee will now play their favourite songs and share stories every Friday night from this week until April 23.
Triple M music boss Mickey Maher said no band fits hand in glove more than the Foo Fighters.
“To have the band host these one-off personally curated shows, exclusive to listeners across our network, is very exciting,” Maher said in a statement.
“Obviously COVID is limiting their chance to grace our shores but with their eighth number one album in Australia, we are thrilled they want to do something like this to celebrate with their Aussie fans. Who are we to turn them down!”
Each week a different member will takeover Triple M with their own radio show and music fans will learn who from the band digs the music of Jane’s Addiction, Van Halen, Queen, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Phil Collins, Alice Cooper and Jack White to name a few.
The Generator will kick over every Friday night from 19 March for Foo Fighters Radio after the footy across Triple M’s enviable 49 stations across the country.
