The Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer is known to have a keen interest in UFOs.
The American singer, musician and songwriter, whose career in the music industry has spanned over three decades, recently described his entire life as an "out-of-body experience."
Speaking during a promotion for his upcoming memoir, he took the time to answer a few questions - including one about a subject that has long been dear to his heart - UFOs.
"Foo Fighters are named after a military term for UFOs. What did you think of the supposed UFO images that the US government released this summer?" the interviewer asked him.
"Oh, I'm a total UFO nerd and I have been for decades," he replied.
"So I've been following it - but what's happening now, I don't think is new. I'm of the belief that that we are not alone, and I'm totally okay with that, you know? It doesn't really change my day too much. "
"When I look up at the stars I think, 'God, I hope we're not alone. What a drag that would be.'"
Back in 2015, he also spoke to Billboard magazine
about the topic.
"In another life, I hope that I was an astrophysicist," he said at the time. "I spend most of my time online in the science section of Google news. It's what I do all day long. I'm a UFO fanatic."
A video clip of him talking about UFOs and government coverups back in 1995 can be viewed below.
