But by 1995, he had also proven himself to be a phenomenal songwriter, guitarist and singer. The Foo Fighters began as a Grohl solo-project in the wake of Nirvana’s tragic end, but quickly became one of the biggest powerhouse bands of the nineties. Their hit single “My Hero” showcases the band’s amazing talents bringing together phenomenal musicianship and production alongside rock’s historic attitude and edge. Returning from touring in the Spring of 1996, the band entered Bear Creek Studio in Woodinville, Washington to record their second album – The Colour and the Shape. The album produced three hit singles: “Monkey Wrench” “Everlong” and “My Hero.” “My Hero” is an anthem celebrating the everyday heroes of our world – and the realization that those we had once idolized on a distant pedestal are perhaps not as important as those closest to us…the ones who stand right beside us. “My Hero” and several other tracks from The Colour and Shape album first started to come together at Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville Washington. The band brought in Pixies producer Gil Norton. Grohl was still the primary songwriter, but unlike the first album (which was basically a solo album), this album was more collaborative. Grohl reflected: “I could never have made an album like this new one on my own…And you know what? [It] doesn’t sound like one person was playing all the instruments. When you throw different personalities and different perspectives into the mix, it’s going to be totally different” “My Hero” and the rest of the album were mixed at Skip Sailor Studios by Chris Sheldon. It was almost an assembly line of productivity as the band would finish tracks one day and send them immediately over to Sheldon to be mixed. The result was a phenomenal album of great songs and production – all while still maintaining that undeniable power-sound and edge. “My Hero” was released on January 19, 1998 as the third single from the band’s second album The Colour and The Sound. The album had been released the previous May, and the two singles which preceded “My Hero” were “Monkey Wrench” and “Everlong”. All three singles were hits and the album peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart, receiving largely positive reviews. Victoria Segal at Melody Maker called it “a great rock album at a time when great rock albums are viewed with increasing suspicion” “My Hero” peaked at number 6 on the US Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. It remains a fan favorite and a phenomenal example of the nineties post-grunge sound – merging together classic rock with grunge and punk’s edge and attitude…made even more brilliant by the band’s phenomenal musicianship. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
