Dave Grohl Says "Hard to Imagine" Playing Live Again

It only took a few months for the coronavirus to turn the world upside-down - to the point where the idea of simply attending a concert again might be hard to wrap your head around.

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters enjoys performing live as much as anyone else, and he just wrote a powerful essay for "The Atlantic" where he admitted that he misses concerts, and said we need to get them back at some point.

He said, quote, "Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has reduced today's live music to unflattering little windows that look like doorbell security footage and sound like Neil Armstrong's distorted transmissions from the moon, so stuttered and compressed . . .

"In today's world of fear and unease and social distancing, it's hard to imagine sharing experiences like these ever again.  I don't know when it will be safe to return to singing arm in arm at the top of our lungs, hearts racing, bodies moving, souls bursting with life.

"But I do know that we will do it again, because we have to.  It's not a choice.  We're human.  We need moments that reassure us that we are not alone.  That we are understood.  That we are imperfect.  And, most important, that we need each other."
