Foo Fighters Photo 4Next up - Foo Fighters, and I think that this was one of the more anticipated beginnings of a set than any of the other bands because as soon as the MC came out to introduce the band, I believe it was Whipping Boy but it ain't in my notes, the entire crowd rose to their feet in extreme expectation. Foo Fighters came out and opened with "This is A Call to All My" (I think that is the name of it, just call me stupid). It rocked, but I think a bunch of the audience was trying to figure out exactly what the hell it was that the lead guitarist was wearing. It was a bright orange outfit, and appeared to be all leather. It was very interesting to see a guy on stage with these bright orange leather pants and a matching vest to boot. I haven't seen leather pants in quite a while, and this pair gave me quite the chuckle. Anyhoo, Foo Fighters did a pretty good job of keeping the crowd into their music all the way through the set. The one thing I didn't like about the set was the tease of a Black Sabbath tune. They asked whether or not any one in the crowd had heard of Sabbath, and then proceeded to tell everyone that this was one of their tunes, or at least shouldda been. They did cover one tune, or at least only one I knew about, and that was a Ramones' songs called "Gas Chamber." and finally closing out the show with "I Stick Around." It was very entertaining and very good sounding. I think everyone there thoroughly enjoyed themselves, some maybe too much. Let's just say I am glad ya can't get a second hand high. So, Foo Fighters gets Two Thumbs Up in my book. Foo Fighters Photo 7The lead guitarist gets One Down for his attire, but what can ya do?
