Dave Grohl’s concern for young musicians


Dave Grohl feels “concerned” for young music artists.
The Foo Fighters rocker admits he worries about younger musicians just starting out in the industry and how they have to learn to “navigate success”.
He told The Sunday Times’ Culture magazine: “Still, to this day, I’ll see a new artist in their early twenties having to navigate success and feel concerned for them.
“Because at that point in life it’s hard for anyone to be prepared for the … the trauma that comes with it. I look back, I think I was 22 when Nirvana became popular, and obviously I didn’t bear the same weight that Kurt did, but I had an incredibly naive attitude, like, ‘Oh my God, I have a credit card now. I can take my friends out for drinks. I can have my own apartment!’ It sounds ridiculous, but my experience was as simple as that.”
Dave previously insisted “preservation” of smaller music venues is “crucial” for the future of the music industry as he praised the Save Our Stages Act in the US, a $900 billion bill that will go towards preventing the permanent closure of independent music venues amid the pandemic.
In a statement issued to the band’s social media pages, Dave wrote: “A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the Save Our Stages Act, which passed yesterday as a part of the economic stimulus bill. The preservation of America’s smaller, independent venues is not only crucial to the millions of concert goers whose lives are bettered by experiencing their favourite artists in the flesh, but to the future of music itself, as it gives the next generation of young musicians a place to cut their teeth, hone their craft, and grow into the voices of tomorrow. The absence of live music this year has left us all longing for that communal feeling of connection, one that is best felt when joined in a song.
“The Save Our Stages Act brings us one step closer to sharing that feeling again, one that I hope we can all experience again very soon. Everyday we’re one step closer. (sic)”

Andi Dorfman is not turning back. Ever since she left New York City for sunny California in June 2020, the former Bachelorette, 33, has been loving her life on the west coast. “I have definitely become a beach girl,” Dorfman exclusively says in the new issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now. “I make a concerted effort to go watch the sunset a few days a week, have a glass of wine, and take a moment to feel fortunate and grateful for the view and for my life.” Thanks to the warmer climate, the reality star has also been living a more active lifestyle. “I used to play tennis growing up and then didn’t play for a good 10 years,” she says, but since the move, “I’ve picked up the sport again and I absolutely love it.” Dorfman has a passion for running too. “I’d say I [go] about five days a week, even if it’s just for 30 minutes to get out of the house,” she admits, which is why she decided to launch Andorfins, her new workout app for runners. “It is my main source of exercise,” adds the two-time author. “I almost feel off balanced and more tired if I don’t go for a run.” While the day is jam-packed with fitness, Dorfman still ensures she always makes time for some of her favorite hobbies — like DIY projects. “My friends legitimately make fun of me because every time they come over I’ve done a new [one],” she quips of doing everything from building a coffee table to painting cabinets. “I joke that DIY is my therapy, but it really is, it’s my way of relaxing.” Want to know how else she spends her day?
