Publisher's Summary

Hear guitarist, songwriter, and actor Dave Grohl of the band Foo Fighters, and TV critic David Bianculli, on this edition of Fresh Air.

The Foo Fighters' latest album, Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace, has been nominated for a Grammy as album of the year. Previously, Grohl was the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana. He formed Foo Fighters after the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994. Their new album (their sixth) includes a song he wrote in tribute to two miners trapped in a mine collapse in Australia. When the men were trapped they requested an iPod with Foo Fighters songs sent down to them. Grohl heard about the request, sent them a note, and then later met with one of the miners. Grohl also performed as a drummer on Tenacious D's debut album, and he later appeared in the 2006 movie, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. (Original Airdate: 10/22/2007)

Then, David Bianculli discusses the return of the late-night talk shows: Leno's, O'Brien's, Ferguson's and Kimmel's. [Broadcast Date: January 4, 2008]
