Even though the Foo Fighters are pretty lame, it's hard to dislike Dave Grohl. After all, he's displayed his unfiltered, unrivalled love of rock countless times -- by sitting in with legends like Tom Petty, filling in on drums for Queens of the Stone Age and teaming with all of his favorite '80s underground metal icons for his Probot side project. The Foos were hand-picked to open for the Police last year. Plus, there was that whole Nirvana thing.
And last night in England, the Foos were joined onstage by half of Led Zep. Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones played "Ramble On" and "Rock and Roll" with the Foos in front pf 86,000 peeps at Wembly Stadium (Robert Plant was touring the U.S., John Bonham is still, sadly, dead). Grohl played drums on "Rock and Roll". It was surely a dream come true for the Grohl.
So, the question of the day is when the frak is Led Zeppelin gonna announce a real reunion tour?
More importantly, who knew that 86,000 (!) people would show up to see the Foo Fighters -- in 2008 no less?
