Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl on music talent shows: 'Don't get me started'

Rocker Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters fame, has revealed that he dislikes televised music talent shows because it gives the message that all it takes to become a well-known and respected musician is to stand in front of a panel and perform once. 

Speaking at a recent TV Critics Association event, the superstar explained that people are being shown that fame is something that can easily be achieved and that becoming a musician or finding success in the industry is actually quite simple:

"I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you're not a good singer. Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about."
