Legendary Rocker Dave Grohl’s Fiery Tribute to Iconic Producer Steve Albini Will Blow Your Mind at Foo Fighters Concert

Legendary rock musician Dave Grohl paid tribute to the late Steve Albini, a renowned engineer, producer, and noise-rock pioneer, during a recent Foo Fighters concert in Charlotte, N.C.

Grohl dedicated the band’s hit song “My Hero” to Albini, who tragically passed away earlier in the week at the age of 61. Addressing the audience, Grohl reminisced about his longtime friend, stating, “He’s touched all of your lives, I’m sure. Talking about Steve Albini. So let’s sing this one for him.”

The connection between Grohl and Albini dates back to Nirvana’s 1993 album, In Utero, where they first collaborated. Their partnership continued in 2014 when they worked together on Grohl’s HBO series Sonic Highways, recording the song “Something From Nothing” at Albini’s Electric Audio Recordings studio in Chicago.

Notably, Grohl, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, and Albini sat down for an interview on the Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend podcast last year, reflecting on the making of In Utero.

After Albini’s sudden passing from a heart attack, musicians such as Pixies, PJ Harvey, and Superchunk paid tribute to his incredible legacy. Albini’s extensive discography includes collaborations with iconic artists like the Pixies, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Mogwai, and the Stooges.

Furthermore, Albini, known for fronting bands Shellac and Big Black, was set to release Shellac’s first album in a decade, To All Trains, with upcoming shows in England and the U.S.
