By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - In yet another great interview conducted by Doghouse Boxing's very own "Big Dog" Benny Henderson Jr., guitarist for one of the only true remaining rock bands in Foo Fighters, Chris ShiflettShiflett made for an extremely interesting interview (two part are linked below) and a must read for all boxing and music fans.

Here is an excerpt from the interview... Regarding the big showdown we all want to see, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao...

Henderson Jr. asked: Floyd was supposed to go to jail, but we all know the deal, now he is scheduled to fight May 5th, he is calling out Pacquiao on Twitter, Arum says that Pacquiao will not be ready for that fight etc. Do you think that fight will ever materialize?

Chris Shiflett:
At this point I do not think it will ever go down, I am not in the inner circle of the camps and do not know what the talks are, as a fan it looks to me like it will not happen because A, Bob Arum does not want it to happen, And B, it appears that Mayweather does not want it to happen. Golden Boy seems like they want it to happen, as well as Pacquiao, but every time they get close to making it happen it seems like Bob Arum or Mayweather throws up a road block. I do not know what the real issue is but for whatever reason it appears it may not happen.

More on the Foo Fighters (plus, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes) below.... but first, you can read the full interview conducted by Benny in two parts with these links:

PART TWO: Foo Fighters' Guitarist Chris Shiflett Talks Boxing with DoghouseBoxing - On Donaire, Mayweather, Guerrero, Pacquiao & many more! (Part: Two)

In regards to the Foo Fighters... my favorite Rock song from last year that could be found on the radio was "Rope".  It made me believe that true rock can still be found on the radio dial. Let's face it... the radio blows these days, but real talent can still be found and the Foo Fighters prove that!  My friends and I downloaded "Rope" for Rock Band (we use Sony PlayStation)... and it's fun beyond belief rocking out to that song. It's always part of our set list. I F*CKING LOVE THAT SONG! Same goes for the Band! What a pleasure it was to see a Foo Fighter rockin' in the Doghouse! (I also think it's awesome to get such strong support for our sport from a member of the number one rock band in the world!)

Another one of the best bands you can kick to is Me First and the Gimme Gimmes... and yes Shiflett plays in that band also! I love the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes for their ability to make better remakes of classic songs. Click the youtube video and listen to Dolly Parton's Jolene covered by the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes... seriously, you'll know what I mean when I tell you, this is the way a band should do remakes (covers)! They have tons more just like this.
