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!

So I associate [‘Rape Me’] with the disappointment—and then having to hear it over and over again, and slowly accepting that I hated it. Because you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. You’re allowed to dislike the Foo Fighters, but you’re not allowed to dislike Nirvana. Even if the song is bad. And I think if it were a Soundgarden song, people would just not like ‘Rape Me.’
Watch the trailer for the upcoming HBO series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. Dave Grohl’s interviewees include Steve Albini, Dolly Parton and President Obama.
OK, the Foo Fighters' Carrie-spoofing #icebucketchallenge video is pretty great.
