Ep 103. Chris Shiflett

From the this-just-in file: “Being in a band is not a normal job.” Chris Shiflett knows it’s a laughable understatement, especially when the band in question is the Foo Fighters, one of the few remaining rock acts that can record, tour and provide a (very) nice living for its members. So why does he still take guitar lessons, humble himself in songwriting workshops and log 14-hour days in the back of a van? The answer is love, friends – an all-consuming passion for making, discovering and understanding music. He didn’t always work so hard; he dropped out of school to enjoy the L.A. rock scene and “make it” in a band. Improbably and inevitably, he did. Yeah, there’s a lot of story in between. Shiflett shares it all, including his harrowing brush with bookkeeping, whoring, drinking and gambling. The last three of which come in handy when you’re writing excellent new country songs.
