In an interview with GQ, Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl said he felt the need to apologize to the rest of the world for President Donald Trump. Here are highlights:

On Donald Trump: “I am ashamed of our president. I feel apologetic for it when I travel. Listen, who cares what I think about guns or religion, but the thing about Trump that stings the most is this: he just seems like a massive jerk. Right?”

On how music unites people: “I know a lot of wonderful people who don’t share my politics and you can bet tomorrow night in the stadium not everyone will share the same opinion or hold the same views. But when I sing ‘My Hero’ they will all sing it with me. In the three hours that I am on stage, none of that matters.”

On his time in Nirvana: “Nirvana, for me, was a personal revolution. I was 21. You remember being 21? You think you know it all. But you don’t. I thought I knew everything. And being in Nirvana showed me how little I really knew. They were some of the greatest highs of my life, but also, of course, one of the biggest lows. Those experiences became a footing or a foundation on how to survive.”
