Veruca Salt’s Singer Reveals What The "Whisper" Is In Foo's “Everlong” Song


Ever turn up the whisper part of Everlong to try to figure out what the hell Dave was saying? Well...

Maybe you know, maybe you don't but the Foo Fighters most popular song “Everlong” was inspired by Dave Grohl's relationship with Veruca Salt's Louise Post. They dated back in the 90's. Well she is now opening up about how the song "Everlong" came together.

Louise happened to come across a YouTube video of her singing on the track and posted it to Instagram (see below).

She writes:

“I sang these back-ups over the phone at 2am after being woken up from a deep sleep in Chicago by [Dave Grohl] who was tracking the vocals for ‘Everlong’ in LA. He wanted me to sing the doo-doo’s, which were inspired by our song ‘Shimmer Like a Girl.’ While I was at it, I wrote a harmony for the chorus and sang that too. The whispered section of this song was originally the dream I was having when the phone rang. It was a dream about us. He later removed it and replaced with his own whispers, one which was a love letter to me. Maybe I’ll tell the full story…eventually…if I feel like it. But I just came across this post and thought I would share for anyone who is interested. XoL.” 

Now we kinda know!
