    So THAT'S why Grohl was found hanging out at bars in my city a month ago. That's ****ing awesome. Can't wait to see where he recorded here.
    does it mean the lyrics aren't going to be much personal..?
    It doesn't mean that they won't be - it can be anything affecting him at that moment in time - kids, family, friends. The way I read it is that Grohl won't be labouring over the lyrics for days/weeks at a time. Expect something a little more raw than you might usually anticipate.
    This is what he was talking about when he said "nobody has ever done this before".
