It’s safe to say that the Foo Fighters are a band that are held very highly in their regard. The band not only has a fanbase that is deeply in love with everything that they do, but they also have been featured in many movies and shows which have had some of our favorite actresses and actors involved as well.
Recently, Dave Grohl took back to the road after reeling from the very sad passing of his great friend and drummer, Taylor Hawkins. The show was not a Foo Fighters show, however. The show was a Dave’s Stories show in which Grohl talks about his life from the bottom to the top.
The show has become somewhat of a therapy session for Grohl when considering all that he has been through throughout his life. In the audience, at the venue in which Dave recently played was none other than the fan favorite, Matthew McConaghey.
Along with McConaghey was famous chef, Tyler Florence.
Dave will be going back to the Foo very soon as the Taylor Hawkins tribute show is heading to LA. Currently, the band are finding a way to meet or exceed London’s triumph at the second event on Sept. 27 at Los Angeles’ Forum.
The concert is set to be another star-studded affair, with a mix of new famous faces, along with returning artists from the Wembley Stadium gig.
As of right now, via Ultimate Classic Rock, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx and Joan Jett all agreed to perform at the second Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert. Former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach is another new addition, as are Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler and Kiss’ Gene Simmons. There will be a stronger female presence at the L.A. show, with Alanis Morissette, Miley Cyrus, Leann Rimes, Pink and Heart’s Nancy Wilson in the lineup. Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, Rage Against the Machine’s Brad Wilk and Weezer’s Patrick Wilson are among the drummers ready to jump behind the kit.
