Dave Grohl Q&A

I jumped on a Zoom call with Dave Grohl last week, shortly before President Biden's inauguration (at which the Foo Fighters played) for a chat about his new album, US politics and funky drumming.  Pretty much the entire conversation ended up being used, in some form or another, in my BBC News write-up.
