Chris Shiflett News
Shiflett recently took part in an interview with rockcellarmagazine.com to discuss his early years as a daydreaming wannabe rock star, the influence his dad had on him as a child, and also, how he landed the gig with Foo Fighters in the first place.
“I didn’t follow anything else; it was just about rock bands and rock music. But it wasn’t until I started playing guitar at 11 and hit my teenage years when I first had the dream of wanting to move to LA and make it and be a professional musician” Shiflett says
On joining the Foo Fighters, he said - “I think that’s why I got the gig in the Foo Fighters. I learned the fucking songs. I showed up ready to go and could have played a gig that night. I encounter my fellow musicians all the time and it never ceases to amaze me how people don’t do the prep.”
“My main thing is I always wanted to play music every day, and I wanted music to be my life, and it is and has been for a long time”
Chris also reveals the first record he bought with his own money was KISS Double Platinum.
