Chris Shiflett Interviews Dave Cobb For His Latest ‘Walking The Floor’ Podcast Episode!
“With a new solo album in the can, Chris Shiflett — alt-country singer-songwriter, longtime member of the Foo Fighters, co-founder of Me First, the Gimme Gimmes and Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants — has been thinking a lot of recording studios. Fittingly, he sits down with producer Dave Cobb for the newest episode of his Walking the Floor podcast. Recorded the same week Cobb permanently moved into Nashville’s famous RCA Studio A, the episode finds the then-strangers bonding over a shared fascination with Gretsch guitars, Glynn Johns and the artists who’ve joined Cobb in the studio, including Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson and Chris Stapleton.
The two have since become good friends, with Cobb producing Shiflett’s upcoming solo record. The podcast, which is streaming in its entirety below, captures their very first conversation, shining a light on a former road warrior who now prefers to work behind the scenes — “Being in the studio is like being in a different band every week,” Cobb explains.
