If you ever wondered what Lemmy’s influence has been on Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters, look no further than the new album. In a new interview with OK!, Grohl says that he wishes Lemmy from Motorhead were still around so he could hear the album. “I wish Lemmy were alive to hear it because he would see how much an influence he’s been to me,” said Grohl.

While the song “No Son of Mine” has a huge Motorhead vibe going for it, Grohl revealed that the song originally had “a country swing to it.” Do you think Lemmy would enjoy the new Foo Fighters album? What do you expect from the new album?
