'These Days' rocker admits he's a massive fan on the 'Rolling In The Deep' star.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has praised Adele's latest album '21'.

Released at the start of last year, the album topped the UK and US album charts, and contained the singles 'Rolling In The Deep' and 'Someone Like You'.

The rocker said he wasn't surprised that the London singer's second album was so successful on both sides of the Atlantic.

Dave told Billboard: "Someone asked me recently, 'What do you think the problem with the music industry is?' I said, 'Take the Adele record, for example'.

"It's an amazing record, and everybody's so shocked that it's such a phenomenon. I'm not."

He added: "You know why that record's huge? Because it's f**king good and it's real. When you have an artist singing about something real and she's incredibly talented, it deserves all the rewards it gets, it's a great record."

Meanwhile, Adele has been tipped to appear at next month's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, where she is nominated for six awards.

Organisers are also said to be keen for the star to perform at the ceremony for the first time since undergoing surgery on her throat.
