[He gave me] one of the greatest compliments, or non-compliments, I’ve ever gotten in my life. I remember seeing this interview with Dave Brockie where they asked Brockie about [Gwar’s] Grammy nomination, and somehow, he made his way to me, and he said, ‘Dave Grohl? He’s actually had teeth removed so he could fit more Grammy dicks in his fucking mouth.’
Dave Grohl reminisces about late Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus (a.k.a. Dave Brockie) at Foo Fighters’ crowdfunded show in Richmond last night

A Message From the Foo Fighters and Jack White’s Shared PR Agency

Dear dream-makers of the media….

Last night Jack White made a joke on stage!

There was a minor equipment mishap, specifically with his guitar, and in an effort to keep his audience engaged, he made a joke! It was meant to be funny and self deprecating: “hey sorry, you’re stuck with just me up here…” vs the Foo Fighters who have three guitar players on stage and regularly play stadium shows.

Jack has the upmost respect for the Foo Fighters and communicated with Grohl this morning. 

So if you’ll let us, we’ll all continue with our day and we assure you: All is well in the rock n roll world.

Presumably a response to Jack White’s Foo Fighters dis. (“[The Foos have a] second guitar player playing the same parts I play so in case I make a mistake, he’s still playing it for you.”)

A Dream Come True for a Foo Fighters Tribute Act

As Foo Fighters geared up to perform hard-rock hit “White Limo,” lead singer Dave Grohl unexpectedly invited his doppelganger Jay Apperley on to the stage.

The musician from Harrogate in Yorkshire, who formed the UK Foo Fighters eight years ago, said the night felt like a “dream come true.”

A small show by the seaside - it reminded me of The Who being in Brighton looking out over the sea, “Nothing is planned by the sea and the sand”. It made me want to go and play Quadrophenia. The Foo Fighters playing as The Holy Shits. It was hot and I mean steam room Bikram hot. Pat Smear and I shared his bottle of champagne which he handed me in between songs. The Foos played for more than two hours just like The Who. I drove home soaking wet…

PS Great show!
