You don’t have to like Dave Grohl or the Foo Fighters to respect them. How many bands would do something like this?
It was a regular day at the Conejo Valley Days County Fair in Thousand Oaks, California. As is often the case with these events, there was live music and on this particular day, a group billed as Chevy Metal was scheduled to play. Foos fans would have recognized this as drummer Taylor Hawkins’ side project. But then Dave Grohl and Chris Shifflet showed up and the performance turned into a full-on Foo Fighters gig–albeit featuring nothing but covers.
