Dave Grohl Hates Reality Singing Shows

Dave was talking about all the reality singing and talent shows. And as you'd expect, Dave is not a fan

Dave Grohl on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper: CBS News

Here's why we love Dave Grohl. On Triple M Sydney's Grill Team today we played a little clip from the Foo man's recent interview on 60 Minutes over in the US.

Dave was talking about all the reality singing and talent shows. And as you'd expect, Dave is not a fan.

"Who's to say who is good or not? Imagine Bob Dylan standing there singing 'Blowin' In The Wind' in front of those judges,  'sorry it's a little nasally and a little flat, next'," said Dave.

"I would never make it. Never in a heartbeat!" Listen to the full audio below.

We also heard from William, our Triple M Music Jury winner of the EPIC Fooies prize who won a trip for him and a mate to see them in LA.

Young member of Lakemba Mosque, Zac, talks to Matty about the Australian Islamic community.

Matty talks to Zac, a young member of Lakemba Mosque

With the increasing presence of terrorist organisation ISIS, the recent attacks and the possibility of an attack on home soil, there has been some negative reactions to people in the Australian Islamic community.

On The Grill Team, Matty wanted to get to the heart of the issues and dispel the rumours against people of the Islamic faith, and what he found was that they're nice, normal Aussies.

"Sometimes you think to yourself, 'do you have deep seeded prejudice?' and I always think to myself no I don't, but you must have because I was so surprised by the warmth of the welcome I got," opened Matty.

"I wasn't expecting any cross words or anything like that but I was surprised but when I got there they were just really happy, smiley people who welcomed me in."

Alan Jones is a massive figure of Rugby Union, coaching the Wallabies from 1984-'87 with 86 victories from 102 matches (and 23 test wins from 30 games) plus a Grand Slam in '84 and the Bledisloe Cup in '86.

On The Grill Team this morning, the boys got Jones on to ask him about the Wallabies very public problems and his thoughts on what the team should be doing to fix this.

"The Wallabies, they're in absolute disarray at the moment," opened Matty.

"Well, I think we've got to separate, Matthew, the Wallabies from the appalling administration, the Wallabies on Saturday night were magnificent, Michael Hooper the 23 year-old lead the team," responded Jones.

"If you were the head of the ARU right now, what's the first thing you'd do?" asked MG.

"If I was at the ARU, I'd send everyone around me at the table to Centrelink," joked Jones.

Matty On Michael Cheika and the Wallabies

During the 'big sports opinion' today, Matty had some big predictions about the Wallabies.

"If you look at Cheika's past he turned a basket-case of underachievers in the Waratahs into Super Rugby champions. He'll do the same with the Wallabies, I actually predict...we'll win the World Cup under Michael Cheika," claimed Matty.

Grillers vs Westboro Baptist Church

You won't believe what the Westboro Baptist Church is claiming this time.

Westboro Baptist Church leader Johnathan Phelps during an online rant: YouTube - Sienna Stylish

The Westboro Baptist Church comes up with some pretty idiotic theories.

The extremely ideological church is known for their very fundamental outlook with their leader Johnathan Phelps leading the charge.

 On The Grill Team, we've discussed them before and this time they've got another outrageous theory about Ebola.

They reckon that it was sent to West Africa to punish Barack Obama.

Listen to outspoken leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, Johnathan Phelps on The Grill Team.

Fire At Port Kembla Steelworks

A listener sent us photos of an intense fire at Port Kembla steelworks.

Last night as Sydney got drenched in rain however, down south in Port Kembla they were dealing with the exact opposite.

At the BlueScope steelworks a fire broke out with an 80-metre stack catching fire.

Employees near the site were evacuated and no one was hurt.

Matt Bossyi captured this video and you can hear someone in the background say, "we were standing there only an hour ago."

Supergrass on NRL Golden Try, Kurtley Beale And More

Triple M's Supergrass delivers another week of rumour and innuendo.

Triple M's Supergrass has delivered The Grill Team another week of rumour and innuendo including news the NRL are looking to recreate the intense action that we saw in the 2014 Finals, especially the one-point wins in the semi-finals.

Ideas include golden try, extra time and bonus points.

"I think golden try [during extra time]. It's really simple. [You] just go to golden try as opposed to the field goal," said Matty Johns, on Triple M Sydney's Grill Team. Listen to the full audio below.

Other stories on the Supergrass table include:

- Kurtley Beale and superstar Israel Folau both considering switches to NRL. "The only fly in the ointment is Toulon, the French champions, I believe that they're willing to pay something like $2 million a year for Israel Folau, which is out of the ballpark for NRL clubs," said Matty, on Israel Folau returning to rugby league.

- Channel Nine paid a fortune for The Block wedding. And the last two left standing at the drinks afterwards? Scotty Cam and Keith 'the foreman'!

- Hugh Jackman could compete in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. And more. Listen to the full audio below.
