You can out-roll Grohl!! Seriously, though. Is there any rock star around right now as cool as Dave Grohl?!
The rock and roll hall of famer and leader of one of the preeminent rock bands around today out-awesomed himself again a few nights ago when he and the rest of Foo Fighters invited Rick Astley onstage for a rather Nirvana-fied cover of “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
Evidently Grohl and the rest of Foo are big Rick Astley fans. And this is not the first time they have rickrolled a crowd before as they did it to hilarious effect in Kansas City a couple of years ago.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
