The original recordings of Foo Fighters 2002 album, One By One, were put away. Metaphorically chucked out and scrapped. Aside from the significant issues the band were experiencing internally, word is that Dave found them too boring and tame, and manager John Silva thought that the recordings didn’t quite represent the band. Drummer Taylor Hawkins referred to them as the “million-dollar demos”.
Now, a couple of full songs (and apparently some instrumentals) have appeared online from the sessions. Take a listen to the demos of “Come Back” and “Have It All” below! Definitely confused as to why they’d want to scrap the former, which sounds brilliant.
