After the exciting pre-show activity of rickrolling the Westboro Baptist Church at their Kansas City concert last week, Foo Fighter’s front man Dave Grohl wanted to clear a few things up.

During the concert at Sprint Center  Grohl said to the audience, “You can’t just sit there and do nothing, you got to go out there, and say what you wanna say, so we did . . . we figured, you know what, why don’t we just f**king RickRoll their ass? Cause nothing says love like a little Rick Astley in your life, you know what I’m saying?”

Just before beginning “My Hero” Grohl continued,”So I’m going to dedicate this song to all the people who go out and speak their mind, to stand up for what they think is right, because every time we got to stand up in this city in front of them, we do it because we feel like we’re standing up for what we think is right.”

Dave Grohl Admits He Has Social Anxiety

Foo Fighter‘s front man Dave Grohl recently admitted to having social anxiety about attending the upcoming Emmy Award Ceremony.

In a interview with Gold Derby, Grohl justified his nervousness saying, “It’s just going to be such a crazy night, I just can’t imagine. I think I’ll feel like that kid who is the new kid at school, the first day at school. I’ll probably just sit down, with my back up against the wall, just nervous, and waiting to see who is going to want to talk to me. I have a little bit of social anxiety. It might seem hard to imagine, but in rooms like that, I kind of clam up. I mean put me at the f**king Grammys, and I know everybody there, and I’ve got a bottle of whiskey in my hands the whole time, but we’ll see what happens.”

The Foo Fighters have their Sonic Highways album nominated for Outstanding Informational Series, Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Sound Mixing and Outstanding Sound Editing.

Fingers crossed that they win! Check out the interview with Gold Derby  below.

Crying Fan Sings “My Hero” With Dave Grohl

 

Sunday Night at the Foo Fighter’s show in Denver, Colorado, Dave Grohl stopped in the middle of “My Hero” and to call out a crying fan.

“Don’t cry motherf—–, I know you’re drunk, don’t cry,” Grohl said to his drunk, crying fan Anthony. “Are you crying right now? You’re f—ing crying aren’t you? I love you man, look at you, holy s—. You know what, f— that speech I was just going to make, I’m singing this s— to you right now. I’m gonna sing this f—— song right in your face, man to man, prison style, I’m going man to man. Me and you, I want some real tears, you better sing it with me. Don’t make me cry, because I promised I wouldn’t do this.”

Grohl insisted Anthony move up to the front row of the audience but changed his mind and made him come on to the stage. After a big hug, Anthony stood beside Grohl, who was sitting on a stool because of a broken leg.  Grohl got up saying, “I’m gonna stand up with my broken leg and sing this f—— song to your drunk ass right now.”

Anthony sat and looked up at Grohl as they both sang “My Hero” together. At the end of the song, Grohl told his starstruck fan to “get the f— off my stage” and hugged him again. Watch the video above.
