Dave Grohl revealed the backstory to Foo Fighters' 1997 signature tune “Everlong.” Grohl appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to promote his new memoir, The Storyteller – Tales Of Life And Music, which has topped The New York Times Best Sellers list.
Grohl explained that “Everlong” captured a perfect moment in time: “I was in love. And one of the things that I loved so much about this person was when we would sing together. It's meant to, sort of, represent that moment. All moments are fleeting. Y'know, if you could be in that moment and think, like, 'If anything could be this good again?'”
