"These people have affected my life in many delightful ways and I'll always be grateful for those lovely influences. So my thanks to the Foo Fighters."
Who talks like that?
So here's a bit of trivia for you. David Letterman had the Foo Fighters play his first show after having open heart surgery and if I remember correctly (Editor's note: due to budget cuts the fact-checkers for this website were recently laid off ) Letterman said, "It's my pleasure to have my favorite band, playing my favorite song. Ladies and gentlemen...Foo Fighters!" Then they played a song.
I now have a spur of the moment idea for a CONTEST. Seriously, I did not think of this before writing this post. Come to think of it, I didn't even think of writing this post before writing this post. Living on the edge, baby. Living on the edge. Okay, back to that exciting contest I just thought of:
The first person who can name the song in the comments section below that the Foo Fighters played on Letterman's first show after open heart surgery will receive a digital copy of our new album that is coming out (soon, oh so soon).
So here is the video from last night's Letterman show. (If this video gets taken down, the whole episode can be found at http://www.cbs.com/late_night/late_show/video/?pid=rkBt_7d5XpIanQeen2XGGHOEvwSViOZy)
So the Foos can add yet another cover to their repertoire. I read an interview recently and guitarist Pat Smear said that they are the only band he knows of who will learn a cover song and then play it in front of 55,000 people an hour later. Or live on TV for millions of viewers.
And still sound great.
I hate Dave Grohl.
