The Foo Fighters kicked off their week-long residency at The Late Show with David Letterman by wearing their metal heart on their sleeves.
HBO will allow cable providers to broadcast the live event to nonsubscribers free of charge.
The concert did not include any new material from the Foo Fighters’ upcoming album Sonic Highways.
We caught up with drummer Ashton Irwin, who told us about some of the older tunes he’s into, obsessing on Guardians of the Galaxy and how this gig helped him achieve a lifetime goal: meeting Dave Grohl.
If the first few seconds of the Foo Fighters upcoming new record — a measly eight — let fans know anything it’s that Dave Grohl and the guys can definitely still rock.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony used to be a drunken, freewheeling event that would stretch to all hours of the night. Today it’s an arena-rock spectacle with stunning moments that won’t soon be forgotten.
“Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” isn’t the same without Tom Petty, though.
“They spoke the truth, and people listened,” presenter Michael Stipe said. “This was not just pop music.”
Once Grohl and Novoselic sat down to discuss the whirlwind week they’ve been having, no time was wasted mentioning their fallen frontman, Kurt Cobain.
The upcoming full-length will be the band’s first since 2011 effort, ‘The Sea of Memories.’
