Dave Grohl is big ‘American Idol’ fan

Rocker Dave Grohl has revealed he’s become a fan of ‘American Idol.’

"I just started watching ‘American Idol,’ like, two weeks ago," the Foo Fighters frontman told BANG Showbiz. "I watched it because of Steven Tyler, he's a good guy. It's good that it makes people pay attention to music."

However, Grohl was quick to add that TV talent shows aren’t the only way for budding musicians to get recognition.

 “Kids should know there are other ways of doing it, you don't have to do it like that, you don't have to do it on TV, you don't have to have that sort of career ambition, you can just do it for fun. You can do it in your room or do it for friends. And you can suck - it's OK!" he said.
