“He was so excited,” Grohl recalled.
The Foo Fighters and Bruce Springsteen celebrated Veteran’s Day by hitting the National Mall. But, they didn’t do some patriotic track, instead they went a little controversial and performed Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son.”
You might know Dave Grohl as the frontman of the Foo Fighters, but according to the former drummer, he’s just a dad who spends a lot of time shuttling his kids around in a mini-van. And when he’s not busy doing that, he plays a little music.
Drummer Taylor Hawkins even came out from behind the kit to take the lead vocals — Dave Grohl filled in for him. Hawkins wore an all white suit, nonetheless. Hard to compete with that.
The Foo Fighters also showed off their comedy chops with a commercial for their new law agency. If you’re needing help with your fight against Foo, you may want to contact Grohl, Hawkins, Mendel, Shiflett, Smear & Associates.
Dave Grohl and the guys took a step back for this performance, letting the two women do their thing while they played back-up.
She’s jammed with the Foo Fighters, and produced Pat Smear’s ex-band, so it makes sense.
Paul McCartney, Elton John and Prince were among those to add to their lengthy list of greatest hits in 2013.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Foo Fighters, The Roots and Imagine Dragons will perform on a cruise ship ahead of the Super Bowl.
“It’s true that in general the mainstream media tends to – and this is normal human nature – pay attention to bands that do well in New York or L.A. They end up getting more attention, because those are the media centers. But there’s a lot of area, what people call the ‘flyover states,’ and those people who live there love their rock and roll, and are loyal to their bands.”
