The Foo Fighters played a secret show at Camden Dingwalls on Saturday Feb 26 2011.It was the second time that this awesome band have graced the Dingwalls stage.
Regualar readers will be aware that LMM supply DJs and sound engineers to this heritage venue.
Saturdays show was an up close and personal set where the band played for two and half hours in a packed venue.It was rock and roll heaven for the fans and industry insiders in attendance.
Our guy Deano was booked to DJ at the after show party and he mingled with the great and the good back stage at this historic venue.
Talking to Dave Grohl Deano displayed his customary wit in pretending he didnt know any of the bands songs.He asked Dave Grpohl why the Foo Fighters hadn’t played their biggest hit “Sweet Child Of Mine” and when Dave looked non plussed and carefully explained that this was a Guns N Roses track Deano then said,” You didnt play Livin On A Prayer either!” At which Dave Grohl realised he was being spoofed and started laughing.Apparently Dave Grohl was such a nice guy that he agreed to take the photo of Deano with Queens Roger Taylor which is at the top of this blog.
Deano chatted to the rest of the Foos and saw Matt Bellamy from Muse amongst others in the back stage area.
Reports from the gig itself?
Apparently they played a storming set and the 500 or so people who saw the show were blown away by a band at the peak of their powers.
