Dave Grohl learned to “play guitar” thanks to The Beatles.
The Foo Fighters frontman was presented with the iconic group’s greatest hits collections, along with a book of their music, by his mother when he was younger, and spent hours honing his skills by playing along to the records.
He said: “That’s really where I learned to play guitar. I would put an album on, find the page with the song, try to play along according to this simple music sheet, almost like I was in a band in my bedroom, trying to follow along with these other players.
“I’d have to remember an arrangement, and changes and tempo and melody. So those two albums were my music teacher when I was young.”
