Chris Shiflett, the guitarist for Foo Fighters, talked about his career in both solo and Foo Fighters settings in a recent interview with Music Radar. The lead guitarist is Shiflett’s only position in the band; in solo projects and live performances, he writes songs, sings, and plays guitar, including solos. He was questioned if it would be wonderful to resume working with Foos and just play the guitar rather than taking on all the work himself during the interview. He answered, Without a doubt. I mean, I constantly realize how fortunate we are in Foos when I go out and take my solo tours. Not just the aspect you’re discussing, the musical aspect of it, but also the sheer luxury of it all. While many other musicians may believe that wealth equates to luxury, Foo Fighters members—Shiflett in particular—do not share this view. After the discussion, the rock star explained what he meant by “luxury”: “Having a fantastic team means you won’t have to worry about driving the van, changing your string, or any other such tasks. to be in a pleasant, cozy hotel room.
After returning from one of my own tours, I exclaim, “Oh baby, I’m home.” The guitarist discussed his experiences playing alone and with Foo Fighters before talking about the luxury. He said that his guitar playing had an impact on his vocals and that he enjoyed seeing other musicians perform since it gave him an opportunity to learn new methods and melodies. In a similar vein, his time in the band influenced the direction of his present work. Eight Foo albums feature the rocker, including the most recent 2023 release, “But Here We Are,” which pays homage to the late Taylor Hawkins. It appears that the rock star is rejuvenated when he takes a break from his solo tours and live appearances. In relation to that, Shiflett is currently on a tour in favor of his recently released album, “Lost At Sea,” which runs from March 20 to March 27.
