Foo Fighters members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins’ new cover of Rush’s song “2112 Overture” is now streaming on NME. Producer Nick Raskulinecz also appears on the track.
Leeds musician Sinclair Belle owned a Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe until it was stolen from his car earlier this year. Somehow, Shiflett saw an article on the theft and, according to Belle, got in touch via Facebook messenger. “I was winding down from the week when a message come through the band’s Facebook page,” he told The Sun. “It was a message from Chris Shiflett. He said he had seen the article and to let him know if I wanted another one.”
Shiflett wrote, “Hey Sinclair. I read about your guitar getting stolen. Bummer! I’d be happy to send you another. Nothing worse than getting your guitar ripped off,”
Weeks later, Belle got a guitar in the mail. When Belle sent Shiflett a message to say thank you, he simply responded: “I hope it serves you well my friend.”
