There catalog is so deep they can confidently open with arguably their two best songs and still have somewhere to go from there

And that first album was JUST Dave

I’m a Run the Jewels fan but that wasn’t very good.

I had a couple of friends there. Tix were $250 each. They built a 6,000 seat venue just for this one show for the Super Bowl.

Yeah... can't believe it's been so long.  I also remember buying the first album the day it was released at Record Exchange in Stillwater.

They’re likely right at 24 years today-ish. First live performance was 2/23/95

During the show Dave said wtte “We’ve been a band for like 25 years”
 

yeah it's up to him more than me, I just wondered if I was missing something-- the 25th of Cobain's suicide is coming up. Which is in itself a what the fuck/where did 25 years go moment.

Yeah I'm guessing he was just rounding to 25. 

Either way... holy shit... can't believe it's been 25(ish) years.

Quote

Earlier this month, Foo Fighters announced they were having to postpone two shows due to “a band member injury.”

The Foos were due to open the Fillmore in New Orleans on February 15 and 16, but were forced to move the shows to May.

Now it’s been revealed exactly what the injury was – and it’s because vocalist and guitarist Dave Grohl had to have surgery on his left arm.

He revealed the news during a talk with Live Nation’s CEO Michael Rapino at the Pollstar Live conference, saying (via Billboard😞 “This is something I’ve had to deal with for a long time. It’s not the end of the world, but I did have to have surgery on my arm because I need it to pay the rent.

“I knew I had to fix my arm at some point and I went ahead and did it."

Grohl added: “It's funny having surgery because you actually get a little bit of rest. Right before they wheeled me in, the guys said, ‘Hey, we’re going to give you something that’s going to make you feel really good’ and I thought, 'I finally get to take a nap.'"

Prior to his surgery, Foo Fighters played a Super Bowl pre-show concert in Atlanta. They were joined onstage by artists including Tom Morello, Queen’s Roger Taylor and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell.

At this point they could put together a decent band just with the randoms he’s brought on stage

I love it when they do that.  Just last night I had to show "Kiss Guy" to a friend, he's a Foo fan but didn't make it to that concert and had no idea what it was until I showed him.

Wonder if they pre screen these guys somehow back stage or something. Because they've all been pretty fucking good.

He grills them pretty good from the stage. “Don’t lie to me mother fucker! Can you REALLY play?”

Last I heard, KISS Guy (Yayo Sanchez) is playing with Natchet Taylor and Able Idle in Disko Wolves.  He's legit.

Here's his version of the back story, which I have no reason to doubt:

KISS guy

Disko Wolves

did anyone ever get to the bottom of this? it's like they more or less randomly went back and made videos for a few songs off Wasting Light
