    Foo Fighters

    One of the best fucking rock band right now. I just love all the shit they've been putting out.

    This year they released their seventh album Wasting Light. They recorded the whole fucking album on tape in Dave's garage. Pat Smear is officially a full time member again, Krist Novoselic played bass on one song and the producer was Butch Vig. Ex-Nirvana members rule!

    They also did some cool music videos, a documentary (out now on DVD and Blu-ray), a garage tour and a worldwide run from spring.
    Such an amazing band. Please share your thoughts!

    If we're talking about mainstream rock bands, Foo Fighters are the cream of the crop. They're the ultimate singles band, they play every show like it's their last, and for the most part, their albums are fucking solid. I liked Wasting Light, and I hope they actually pay a show this tour in which I can see them. Fuck Courtney Love.

    Saw them in Vancouver at the end of October, and it was awesome!
    They definatly give you your money's worth concert wise, they played for 3 hours!
    The show was alot of fun. I was stuck in seats, and I can't stand being at a concert in seats, but it was still ALOT of fun!

    Wasting light is their best release since "The Colour and the Shape".

    they put on a helluva show this time around, but there were waaaay too many extended singalongs/interludes/whatever throughout the show. It reminded me of what Green Day does now. Just play the song, no one needs you to add3 minutes of nonsense to them. I also could have done without the guitar solo off...silly. Could have heard 4 or 5 more rare songs or something instead.

    Always hate posting things like this but, it sure would be cool if I had a high quality mp3 of Darling Nikki... cooler than paying $100+ for the single it appeared on. Thanks in advance, for what? I don't know, nudge nudge, wink wink.

    I used to dislike the Foo Fighters, but only because I was irritated at the overplay of The Best of You when that came out. I don't mind that song but I've grown to like them now. Wasting Light is a good album, love The Colour and The Shape.

    Heard good things about this album. Oh and they're headlining Leeds. Maybe I should go for two nights after all.

    Bumping because Erick Estrada...



    Ok, excluding the commercial, i do think they are great, love the first album eve thought they weren't technically a "band" in that moment... I also like "The Colour and The Shape" (but i think it's a bit overrated) and the awesome "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace" (this one is my favorite).

    Yes he is, lol
    In my opinion the blonde dye helped him to hide his age but the truth is that they are all oldies, even Taylor looks a bit aged...

    Just posted this on facebook. I saw them in May 2011. Motörhead was unable to make it, so they played a REALLY LONG show that night.

    It was awesome.

    I was also REALLY CLOSE. Excuse the shitty iPhone pics.

    Dave Grohl is the shit.

    Even if you don't like the Foo Fighters you gotta admit that guy is everything you wish to be as a musician.

    My only concern with this is that the suggestion is it'll only have 8 tracks on it....wonder if TR is one of the guests bearing in mind their past history. Assuming not.

    I'll bet if Dave Grohl died today, his legacy would eclipse Cobain's.

    I would hope! At least he can play his instrument(s) and I can understand what is coming out of his mouth. Can't say the same for Cobain.

    I don't know...it took me a long time to understand a lot of what he was saying on the first Foos album. Coincidentally, that's also my favorite Foos album.

    Don't really agree with you about Cobain being a bad guitar player, but I don't think being a good one was ever the point, anyway.

    Fucking cool. For several days, they just recorded at Preservation Hall in New Orleans, and then played a show that shut down St. Peter St.

    Kurt's a member of the 27 club, never going to happen.

    Dave's career with the Foos and with everything else is like the Frasier of Rock music, in that no one else has had quite the second act after being part of something so ground-changing. Not even Paul McCartney who despite making great relevant music since his old band broke up, is still quite tethered to it's legacy.

    Foos playing at Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE on Friday night. Anyone know if this festival ever gets live-streamed? Doesn't look like it, based on my 2 minutes of Googling, but maybe someone else knows differently.
