Dave Grohl talked with NME TV ahead of the magazine’s awards, where the Foo Fighters frontman is set to receive the Godlike Genius Award. “To me the most important part of what we do is the interaction, so that it becomes a human event,” Grohl said. “I love listening to records and I love watching documentaries and I love reading biographies, but there’s nothing better than seeing that person with that instrument doing it right there in front of you. I think that’s the greatest thing in the world and it’s my favorite part, just so people know you’re for real.” The Shockwaves NME Awards 2011 ceremony takes place at the O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday, February 23rd.
