Maybe it's how Dave Grohl's hair is always in his face. Maybe it's the massive BBQ's he cooks up for Cali Firefighters or at homeless shelters. But it's not just that when it comes to the Foo Fighters. I saw them during their first album push in the 90's in Chicago, small venue, before they were huge. You could tell from their vibe they were gonna be a pivotal band on the music scene of that decade. It wasn't grunge, but flat out joyful, yet serious rock n roll with thoughtful lyrics and the unfatiguable Dave Grohl as their manic metronomic front man. He's an amazing musician with that blue guitar up front, following the limbs and hair flying days of Nirvana. He's even funny on stage and off. Even when he FELL OFF THE STAGE. So, that's the spirit of the Foo Fighters that we got to see at their one hour studio video aired on veeps.com on Sunday when they revealed the newest edition to the band, replacing Taylor Hawkins (with a lump in our throats) with Josh Freese.
