The Foo Fighters turn 20 tomorrow. Stereogum has a nice write-up on the anniversary.
But the first Foo Fighters album turns 20 tomorrow, which means at this point there has to be many others who first became aware of Grohl because they heard “Everlong” on the radio or in the mall or anywhere, or they saw any video in the long lineage of Foo singles on Fuse or whatever.

Update: Read a letter from Dave Grohl discussing the issue, the extent of his injuries, cancellation of shows and more here.

Following Dave Grohl's recent on-stage leg break, Foo Fighters has cancelled the rest of the European tour which includes their hugely anticipated headline set at this year's Glastonbury Festival. Check out the updated itinerary in the replies.

Update: The next two shows (PinkPop and St. Gallen) have been cancelled.

Foo Fighters are currently in the middle of their European tour which includes headlining Glastonbury, but last night at the show in Gothenburg, Sweden Dave Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg only two songs into the set. Rather than cancelling the show, Grohl was taken to get it checked out whilst the band played a few songs without him. He then returned to the stage where medics fixed a cast to his leg as he continued playing and singing from a chair on stage for the rest of the two hour long show. No future shows are considered to be cancelled. Hit the replies for some pictures.

Lightning struck during the Rock Am Ring Festival in Germany over the weekend. Over 30 people are in the hospital, luckily none of the injuries are considered life threatening. The concert included such acts as Foo Fighters, Slipknot and Bastille. Best wishes to everyone hurt.

News has been pretty quiet on the Glastonbury Festival front this year in terms of the line up, but tonight the NME Awards are taking place live in London's Brixton Academy and Foo Fighters picked up the award for "Best International Band" moments ago. The band were unable to be at the event so recorded a video message which sees them declare that they will be headlining Glastonbury this year.

Dave Grohl will be the Record Store Day ambassador this year. His full statement is in the replies.
Growing up in Springfield, Virginia in the 70’s and 80’s, my local independent record stores were magical, mysterious places that I spent all of my spare time (and money) in, finding what was to eventually become the soundtrack of my life. Every weekend I couldn’t wait to take my hard earned, lawn mowing cash down for an afternoon full of discovery. And, the chase was always as good as the catch! I spent hours flipping through every stack, examining the artwork on every cover, the titles and credits, searching for music that would inspire me, or understand me, or just to help me escape....

Foo Fighters are currently in the UK to play the closing ceremony of The Invictus Games, but before doing so they hinted at a few secret shows across the country. Tonight they played the first of three billed as 'The Holy Shits' and played to a 600 capacity crowd with a set consisting of mainly rarely played tracks and covers. The band also hinted that they will be playing a week of shows at the famous Wembley Stadium. Check out the setlist in the replies.
"I seem to remember years ago we played this club and it was also hot as balls. When we were asked to come over and play the Invictus Games on Sunday I thought 'we haven't played in the UK in years', and I thought we'd try to play...

At a recent TV Critics Association event in Los Angeles, California, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl voiced his opinion on "singing competitions":
I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you're not a good singer. Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about.

Dedicated Foo Fighters fans living in Richmond, Virginia, took to crowdfunding platform Crowdhoster to try and get the band to come play where they hadn't in some 15 years. Because the Foo Fighters are amazing: they have agreed to play.

The Foo Fighters will be releasing their new album this fall. The release will coincide with Dave's new HBO Show.
One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.
Jason Tate on 05/15/14 - 10:54 AM
Looks like Dave Grohl will be getting his own HBO Series.
Expanding upon the ideas explored in Grohl's acclaimed Sound City documentary, the series will see the Foo Fighters' frontman visit, and record music at, some of the world's most iconic recording studios. Grohl will also conduct interviews for the series, speaking with some of the artists who have recorded at each facility.

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters recently recalled the first time he heard Lorde's "Royals," saying it was "it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop." He went on to say Lorde has "something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic," which is why she was one of the musicians selected alongside St. Vincent, Joan Jett, and Kim Gordon to front Nirvana at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
