The Drop: Chris Shiflett

MODERATED BY MATT PINFIELD

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome “Americana’s biggest rockstar” Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters to the Museum’s intimate 200-seat Clive Davis Theater for an evening including a conversation moderated by Matt Pinfield about his latest solo project Lost at Sea, career, creative process, and more with a performance to follow.

Punk veteran. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Americana and rock songwriter. Modern-day guitar hero. For more than 25 years, Chris Shiflett has blurred the lines between genre and generation, balancing his full-band projects with a thriving solo career.

He turns a new page with Lost at Sea, a solo record that builds a bridge between Nashville — where Shiflett has become a frequent visitor, performing on the Grand Ole Opry one minute and collaborating with Music City tastemakers like Jaren Johnston and Dave Cobb the next — and his native California. Caught halfway between the honky-tonk saloon and the punk-rock dive bar, Lost at Sea is both eclectic and electric, making room for alt-country crunch, guitar-driven grit, and sharp songwriting. Tying that mix together is Shiflett himself: a musical Renaissance Man whose influences are every bit as wide-ranging as his resumé.

Named “Americana’s biggest rockstar” by Rolling Stone, Shiflett has played a crucial role in shaping the sound and scope of modern-day rock music as a longtime member of the Foo Fighters. He joined the band in 1999, after kicking off his career playing guitar for seminal pop-punk groups like No Use For a Name and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Foo Fighters quickly made use of his instrumental chops, with Shiflett contributing to era-defining hits like “All My Life,” “Times Like These,” and “Best of You.” While flying the flag for modern rock & roll, he also made time to pursue projects outside of the band. Groups like Jackson United and Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants found him in the driver’s seat, establishing his credentials as a frontman, while the long-running Americana podcast Walking the Floor found him shining a light on his heroes and contemporaries, its 200+ episodes highlighting the storytellers, songwriters, and road warriors of contemporary roots music.

Last year Shiflett launched the first season of “Shred With Shifty”, a vodcast focused on guitar solos from Volume.com, Double Elvis, and Premier Guitar. Shiflett engages with the biggest names in the guitar world, delving into their most iconic solos and the art of playing guitar with exclusive video. For example, Alex Lifeson talks to Shiflett about how the “Limelight” solo was pieced together in the studio,
