‘Glee’s’ Ryan Murphy now understands musicians not giving music

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy made headlines when he called out Kings of Leon for not wanting their music on the show, but now he is singing a different tune.
While the matter has somewhat exploded with Dave Grohl backing Kings of Leon, Murphy wants to put it to rest, states PopEater. Murphy is now stating that there are no hard feelings and the door is always open for the music on the show.
“I support artists and what they choose to do … I think Kings of Leon are cool as shit. The Foo Fighters are brilliant. We’d love to do one [of] their songs, if they were ever interested. But if it’s not their thing, then OK. I personally wish them luck, will still listen to their music,” Murphy commented.
Why do you think he changed his mind?

‘Glee’ hasn’t made a fan out of Dave Grohl

HollywoodNews.com: A lot of musicians and singers have been supportive of having their music featured on ‘Glee,’ but Foo Fighter and former Nirvana musician Dave Grohl doesn’t care about being involved.
Grohl recently spoke to ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ about musicians getting to choose whether or not they want involvement, states RadarOnline.com.
“[I]t’s every band’s right — you shouldn’t have to do f****ng ‘Glee,’” Grohl commented, likely in regard to Kings of Leon famously turning down Ryan Murphy’s request for their music on ‘Glee.’
Grohl continued to stick up for musicians who choose not to want their music involved in the show no matter what the reason: “And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee,’ me included.”
What do you think about musicians not wanting their songs on ‘Glee’?

Foo Fighters doc completely rocks SXSW

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It took a documentary about a band to finally rock my world at South By Southwest this year.
Granted, the Foo Fighters might be the biggest – if not the only – rock-and-roll band left, so the crowd jammed into the Paramount Theater last night for the world premiere of the new Foo doc “Back and Forth” showered Dave Grohl and his band mates with the proper amount of respect and love.
“Forth” produced the liveliest screening atmosphere I’ve experienced at SXSW so far. Fans chanted, sang along and, most important, laughed as Grohl retraced – with his unforced wit and gift for gab – the steps that have made him a rock legend. The documentary, compiled with breathtaking power and relentless humor, begins with Nirvana (as it should) and traces the Foo Fighters’ tumultuous 15 year career.
The interviews are candid. The live performances are energetic. And the footage of the band recording their latest album in Grohl’s California garage, surrounded by family, are heartwarming. Not what you might expect from a down-and-dirty rock doc, but it works. It really, really works.

You don’t even have to be the biggest Foo fan to get caught up in the band’s story. But you will be shocked to realize how many of the band’s hits you know simply from radio-play absorption. And the build up to the band’s performance in London’s Wembley Stadium will leave you in awe.
“Foo Fighters: Back and Forth” will be on VH1 in April. It won’t quite replicate the experience of seeing it in the Paramount with 1,200 rabid Foo fans. But it’s a must-see doc, and one of the best things I’ve seen at SXSW this year.
Here’s video I took of the band taking the stage at the Paramount.
