Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters will never be divas

Foo Fighters will never make diva deamnds.

Guitarist Chris Shiflett has played for the 'Rope' group for 14 years and says they remain unaffected by their growing legendary status.

He explained to the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper: ''When there is just us five or six blokes in a room together learning songs and rehearsing, it's the same as it ever was.''

The 42-year-old insisted the rock group won't fall victim to drugs and squarrels like 1970's rockband The Eagles prior to their split in 1980.

He continued: ''It's a really good thing that we don't all show up in our own separate limousines and have our own separate managers, that whole thing. The Foo Fighters are never going to turn into The Eagles, you know? You can see how that happens with other bands, but that ain't gonna happen with us.''

Despite becoming integral to the group, Chris also recalled auditioning for bandmates Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins.

He said: ''I was so nervous going into it, but the minute I walked through the door, Dave was like 'You saved us from that last guy who wouldn't leave!' so I immediately felt comfortable.Then, when Dave and Taylor called and said 'OK, you got the gig,' to me I had made it. My head was spinning for years and it took a long time to settle down.''

The musician - who also has his own country band, The Peasants - also said Foo Fighters are working on a new album.

He explained: ''We're in the very early stages of demoing new song ideas and it feels inspired. Going out and doing all the things we've done in the last year or so has certainly helped.''
