(I started this update on Monday, but had some technical issues that kept me from uploading photos, so I’m consolidating Monday – Wednesday / David Letterman here. I’ll have another update tomorrow for Thursday’s show and another on Saturday for Friday’s show).
If you aren’t aware, Foo Fighters are the house band on David Letterman all week long. Monday night’s show featured FF with Zak Brown and they performed ‘War Pigs’ (Black Sabbath). Here’s the video (I believe it’s only available in the U.S.A.)
Dave also sat down with..Dave…and here are a couple of videos here:
Here are a few screen shots that I grabbed:
Entertainment Weekly Magazine dated October 17, 2014 with Michael Keaton on the cover has a review of Sonic Highways on HBO:
Head over HERE to Rolling Stone to watch Dave and Perry Farrell Cover Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan.
Tuesday’s “Late Show with David Letterman” featured the “Foo Signal” – which – come on, I’d really like to see this one become a reality.
Also last night, the world premiere of “Sonic Highways” took place in New York City and I have a few Red Carpet photos for you right here:
Before I get to Wednesday’s update, it’s time to pay the bills so I’m just going to insert this public service announcement right here:
Here are some screen caps of that commercial in case you need to dial these fine gentlemen for any Foo Fighting needs:
Foo Fighters with Tony Joe White: “Polk Salad Annie”
This is a web exclusive / extra on David Letterman’s YouTube site. He tells a nice story about his son followed by ‘Miracle’ by Foo Fighters:
Ok, everyone – don’t forget that the first single is out tomorrow off of Sonic Highways (right?) and some really lucky peeps will get to see Foo Fighters at the Cubby Bear in Chicago on Friday after the airing of the first episode of Sonic Highways on HBO – really looking forward to all of the exciting things that are about to happen. No one releases albums the way that Foo Fighters do. It’s a party that’s for sure. I’ll be back tomorrow with updates from tonight’s episode of David Letterman.
For the first time in months I seem to be caught up here at work (shhh!) and I’ve been wanting to spend more time here and there’s quite a bit of news to share so there’s no better time than the present! Settle in:
- Foo Fighters are scheduled to perform all week long next week (Oct. 13 – 17) on David Letterman with special guests who inspired their new album. I’m a month behind. I’m scheduled to be in New York City from November 13 – 17 so this sucks for me. (ha). TUNE IN to Letterman next week!
- On November 11, Dave will perform in Washington DC at a Veterans Day Celebration (The Concert for Valor) is being hosted by Starbucks and HBO, which will open up their signal to cable subscribers nationwide during a live telecast. The show is at 7 p.m. on the grounds between the Capitol and the Washington Monument. The concert will be free and open to the public.
As you know, Sonic Highways appears on HBO on October 17, 2014. So exciting! Check out this “Conversation with Foo Fighters” (Please note this might only be available in the states):
So, if you’ve followed my website for over the past 10 yrs, you know that after watching that clip, I just HAD to grab these:
At the risk of sounding like a 13 yr old, I can’t even….that first photo with the flag that says “76” on it is obviously a school portrait and it was taken around 1976 because everyone that attended public schools around that time had that same flag in their photo. It was celebrating 200 yrs of American independence (1776 – 1976). I have one too. Gotta go look for that.
Rolling Stone magazine dated Oct. 9, 2014 Issue 1219 (John Oliver on the cover) has this nice little image for all of you that were lucky enough to attend the Foo Fighters – excuse me, The HOLY SHITS show: (Click to enlarge)
And also in Rolling Stone, (Issue 1218) dated September 25, 2014 with (insert obligatory eye roll and yawn) Taylor Swift on the cover – Rolling Stone lists 10 albums you should hear this fall and GUESS WHO is # 1? These guys: (Click to enlarge)
I know that there are a million other Foo Fighters related things out there because we’re getting close to the premiere of Sonic Highways and the release of the album as well so I’m making a commitment to try to keep up on it all and have more updates etc.
I have been dealing for the better part of two years with health issues that have just kept me down and out and I recently just had to have a serious talk with myself and decide to either continue on unproductively the way that I was or to try to get back to where I once was and live through a lot of the nerve pain/damage that I have and just deal with it somehow. So I’m trying to get back to doing the things that I once loved to do and being a part of this has always been fun for me. So that’s my goal. And what a better time to start, huh? With all of the upcoming things that will be out there for us fans, there’s no time like the present. Some of you have asked about the Birthday Book for Dave’s birthday in January. Yep. It’s on. Stay tuned.
