    I was lucky enough to have a good friend who was able to get me and my buddies side stage at The Virgin Music Festival in Toronto this weekend. The bands were all really good and we had a great time.

    We were watching the Against Me! set, really enjoying the energy those guys put out and just having a great time. At one point I just happened to look back over my shoulder and not 5 ft behind me is Dave Grohl!!!! He was just chillin' out watching the show. Really solid dude!

    Oh and of course, the Foo's show was crazy good!

    I met him out here once. Know what? He pees standing, in the bathroom, just like a mortal.

    He is a very nice dude.

    Here is one for all of you WASH DC people, I saw him in Mars Music (around Fairfax) years ago buying gear for his home studio right around the end of the Nirvana days. He and my guitarist got into a conversation about Super Nintendo because my guitarist was enough of a dork to wear a Mario shirt.

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    He seems like a cool guy. I was lucky enough to see him earlier this year in Toronto when Geddy and Alex from Rush joined the Foos drummer to play YYZ. Groll sat on the corner of the stage drinking a Corona grooin' out to the tune.

    Also, he is as funny as hell, too.

    I "ran into" him on suicidegirls.com several years ago, and managed to piss him off completely by accident.

    Random question:

    Does anyone else find the bass player for the Foo Fighters (Nate) to be creepy? Every interview or video, or anything I've seen with them, they all seem so normal. Except this guy. He seems creepy.
     
  15. I was watching the bears game last night after band practise, and my guitarist pointed out the resemblance, it's uncanny.

    ortongrohl.
     
  16. Thats cool. Of all the bands I've seen live Dave definitely has the best crowd skills. (he says more than, thanks, yeah and Hows it going? Brisbane).
     
  17. Dave is a pretty cool dude!
    His radio interview with metallica was funny as hell

    He played in one of THE original emo bands before it got about dressing up like A Nightmare Before Christmas. Give the guy a break.

    The whole band is very cool. I know Taylor's sister very well and get the nice inside advantages. Very funny, well grounded, music loving. I'd post a picture but she might kill me (they look like twins).

    They all are humbled by the ability to make a career out of music and do NOT take it for granted. Check out Taylor's side project with Chris Cheney on bass, damn good. I think that it's called Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders.
     
  20. Best name ever.
