Foo Fighters debuted a new song called “Lah Di Da” at the Secret Solstice Festival yesterday. Watch the video, then read a heart melting story about Dave Grohl below.
Devon Live reports, Laura Plane died after a ‘heroic’ eight-year battle with cancer last month – remaining a tireless fundraiser and campaigner throughout.
Laura and her husband were massive Foo Fighters fans – not only did they have ‘Everlong’ as the first dance at their wedding, but they also planned to watch the band for their 10th wedding anniversary this year before she fell too ill. Jon then contacted the band to ask them to dedicate ‘Everlong’ to Laura at Glastonbury – with his request going viral on social media. Dave Grohl then replied with a personal note on a piece of scrap paper.
“Jon – Dave here,” reads the note. “Heard about Laura. Sending you much love and hope and light. Will be thinking of yous at Glasto. Take care mate.”

“I can picture Laura’s little face smiling about it,” said Jon. “It is incredible. I am over the moon.”
He continued: “Even if Foo Fighters don’t dedicate the song to Laura, she would have loved [the note] anyway. But what I got from [the note] is that it is going to happen. It is incredible. Laura must have engineered this somehow as I was having a really bad week after her funeral, when it hit me like a wave.
He added: “I was a mess all of Sunday and Monday, and then I saw [Dave’s] message on Tuesday. I was blown away. The power of social media is crazy, but incredible.”
