Grohl back on drums at Reading!

27 August 2005
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl thrilled fans during their headline show at Reading by picking up sticks for the first time
at the venue since he performed at the festival with Nirvana 13 years ago! (in 1992)
Grohl swapped places with Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins on 'Cold Day In The Sun' towards
the end of the set, which intersperced songs from recent album In Your Honour with fan-friendly hits spanning the band's career.
on, he poured out his feelings for the festival, gushing: "I fucking love Reading so much!
I've been to so many festivals but this is the only one I love."
He then proceeded to lay into rival events,
declaring: "The others suck! Glastonbury is for smelly hippies, V is for the clean people,
the fucking yuppies. The Reading festival is for dirty fucking rockers who come out to have a good time. Take it from your
Uncle Dave I've been looking forward to this for a very long time."
We at VF can vouch for his inaccuracies on at least
one of those criticisms.
Fighters close the Leeds Festival tomorrow (Sunday).
The full set list was:
In Your Honour
Times Like These
Best Of You
Up In Arms
Learn To Fly
This Is A Call
Cold Day In The Sun (Dave on drums!)
For All The Cows
