We've heard it before and it's been said again: Dave Grohl is the best! Zac Brown got to work with Dave on Sonic Highways and then Dave returned the favor by producing music for them. It's grown into more than just a business relationship, as the two are friends now.
“There’s some people where you look behind the curtain into the human beings that artists are and some of them are a little quirky and strange, they might kinda tarnish the perception that you want them to be, but Dave Grohl is everything you’d want him to be and more. The greatest ones usually are. Paul McCartney’s the same way – super sweet, super down-to-earth. With Dave, we got to be friends, and what an incredible creative force. Working with him legitimized the journey of what we were going to do. We were playing Rage Against The Machine in our set sometimes, when we did festivals late at night, when there weren’t a bunch of kids there. Working with Dave and working with Chris Cornell is a dream come true because you look at these people when you’re younger like superheroes. Now you’re getting to be friends with Batman, that’s what it feels like. But they’re real folks, you realize that we’re not a lot different from each other besides all of the accolades. That’s probably the greatest thing about our career is getting to work with all our heroes.”
