The Foo Fighters continued their quest to become the nicest band in modern rock by staging a concert at a California pizza parlor earlier this week. The group, led by lead singer and guitarist Dave Grohl, set up a special, secret gig at the Rock & Roll Pizza parlor in Moorpark, California on Monday night. The audience was any fans who learned that they were playing there, along with anyone else who showed up just to enjoy a slice, according to Metro.
The show featured 23 of the group’s biggest hits starting with All My Life and rounding out the evening with My Hero, Monkey Wrench, a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ Breakdown and, of course, Everlong. Thankfully, someone with a camera caught a portion of the small show as the band played Learn to Fly, Limo and Arlandria so the rest of us could enjoy it.
This gracious gesture won’t be a surprise to any hardcore fan of the Foo Fighters. SPIN Magazine once called Grohl “the nicest dude in rock.” They even listed 10 reasons to back up their claim such as the $1 billion in donations he’s made over to the years to several worthy children’s health and aid charities, similar shows that he and his band have staged at fans’ houses and the legendary story about the time he spent with (and the lengths he took to recognize) a fan who suffers from cerebral palsy in several of his live shows. Grohl’s basically the anti-version of anyone else who has ever worked in the music business.
