The Foo Fighters will be visiting many North American venues during 2011 which is great news for their countless loyal fans. This legendary band made headlines recently when Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, noticed a fight at the iTunes Festival and immediately stopped playing. He basically said, leaving out the four letter words, to stop fighting and for the people involved to get out the show right away. To show approval of Dave’s swift actions, his fans began to chant his name loudly. Way to go Dave!!!

Dave Grohl, a popular singer, guitarist and drummer and the ex- frontman of Nirvana, a short lived but very famous band, formed a rock band Foo Fighters in 1995. Initially, he independently made a debut called Foo Fighters, handling all the vocals and the instruments himself. It circulated in the music world with a keen interest, then he had to change his decisions and to support the album, he formed a regular band. William Goldsmith, Pat Smear and Nate Mendel were invited to join the band and they started recording the band’s next album, “The Color and the Shape.” By the time, Goldsmith resigned from the band due to some tussle on playing drums, and Taylor Hawkins took his place. Franz took Smear’s place who was again replaced by Chris Shiflett and then the real Foo Fighters was established.
“The Color and the Shape” was released under the production of Gil Norton in a Woodinville, Washington studio. Grohl took the responsibility of song-writing as he had been writing songs since his teenage years but he hadn’t disclosed them when he was in Nirvana and the rest of them teamed up on the arrangements. Its prominent singles were “Monkey Wrench”, “My Hero and Everlong”. The following album, “There is Nothing Left to Lose” was recorded in Grohl’s Virginia home studio. Its single, “Learn to Fly” was a smashing hit and the band’s first single to reach the U.S. Hot 100. At the same time, they became affiliated with another hit band, Queen. When Queen was initiated into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, its members tempted Grohl and Hawkins to work together with them on “Tie Your Mother Down”.
These two particular bands have performed mutually on many junctures since, including VH1 Rock Honors and Foo Fighters’ headlining concert in Hyde Park, as well as the band’s concert at the O2 arena in London in 2007. “One By One” was the next album, released in October 2002 with the singles “All My Life”, “Times Like These”, “Low and Have It All”. The next album “In Your Honor” was released a bit later in 2005 due to some political activities of the group. “Best of You”, “DOA”, “Resolve”, “No Way Back” and “Miracle” were its popular songs. The band executed their biggest headlining concert to date at London’s Hyde Park the next year. It was propped up by Juliette and the Licks, Angles and Airwaves, Queen of the Stone Age and Motherhead. In November 2006, the band made public their first ever live CD, “Skin and Bones” which attributed fifteen performances confined over a three night stand in Los Angeles. A supplementary DVD was also released having those tracks which were not offered in the CD. Then in 2007, “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” was released. Its single “Pretender” topped the Modern Rock Chart for a record 18 weeks. It was nominated for 5 Grammy Awards in 2008.
Their latest album “Washing Light” debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart being the band’s first album to earn this grace. Its first single, “Rope”, was released in February 2011. The band played a bombshell set at the 2011 KROQ Weenie Roast on June 4, 2011. They are programmed to title at Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grand Park in August this year. Currently they have released a fine music video for their second exotic single, “Walk”. If you ever get a chance to attend a live Foo Fighters show, never miss the occasion.
