Dear misters Foo Fighters,
the Pukkelpop organisation has figured out a way to guarantee the continued existence of the festival. But Pukkelpop has suffered considerable financial losses. The festival will only be able to survive with the support of many and thanks to the strong reputation it has built up in the past. The consequences of the Pukkelpop storm will weigh heavily on Pukkelpop, the festival as well as the organization, in the coming years.
I am going to be there on August 16th, 17th and 18th, 2012. And i think a lot of the people who were in the centre of the storm that day will be there. Are you guys going to be there? More than 300 days until then, time enough to squeeze an already memorable Pukkelpop show in your schedule? It would be an enormous favor for Pukkelpop helping them to secure the future of a great festival. And of course, we, the fans, are dying to see you rocking out the festivalground of Pukkelpop.
Hope to see you then, or earlier of course,

Dave Grohl has temporarily joined Cage The Elephant as their touring drummer.
The band, who are currently supporting the Foo Fighters on their US tour, are presently without their drummer Jared Champion after his appendix burst on Monday (October 10) evening.
Cage The Elephant have indicated that Champion is likely to be fit enough to retake his place on the drum stool in San Diego on Monday (October 17th), but until then, Mr. Grohl is working double duty.

This is not the first time Foo Fighters cover a Pink Floyd song. In 2000, the band recorded Have a Cigar with Brian May for the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack.
On Aug. 30th, 2011 Westboro Baptist Church called for a picket of the Foo Fighters show in Kansas City. Check out Foo Fighters (signature) reaction to this.
Over the last two weeks, Foo Fighters appeared twice at Conan O’Briens show. Check out the interview with Dave and Taylor about getting speed tickets, dressing up and picking the wrong band name. Foo Fighters also performed Walk and Dear Rosemary with Bob Mould.
And a few weeks ago, at the Hurricane festival, they talked about differences between the audiences worldwide.
Is it related to the newly released trucker video? Because Dave played Satan in the Tenacious D movie? Because they like to dress up in nearly every video? The video for Low? Anyway… Foo Fighters’ show in Kansas City on September 16th is set to be picketed by members of the notorious Christian fundamentalist church Westboro Baptist Church.
According to a statement on the church’s protest schedule, they have opted to picket Dave and co’s show because: “The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic. These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags.”
No biggie, just wanted to let you know…
Arlandria will be released as single today, September 5th, 2011! So, not on October 5th as reported earlier here and other sites.

Foo Fighters have won the award for Best Rock video for “Walk” at MTVs VMAs.
“We’d like to thank Sam Jones, the director; Joel Schumacher, the director of ‘Falling Down,’ which was the movie we based the video on; and all our friends at MTV,” Grohl said during his acceptance speech. “I just want to say: Never lose faith in real rock and roll music, you know what I mean? Never lose faith in that. You might have to look a little harder, but it’s always going to be there.”
