Foo Faves 2022
Welcome back to Monday’s Music Moves Me!
Today is Free Choice week, which means we can post about anything our little hearts desire. I’m also trying out a new idea for the blog here.
Some of you may or may not know this about me, but one of my most favorite
bands is Foo Fighters. My favorite albums being The Colour and The Shape and Wasting Light.
Sadly, the band lost their talented drummer, Taylor Hawkins, on March 25, 2022 and as a result, tours came to a screeching halt. I truly feel for Dave Grohl, the lead singer, as he and Taylor were best friends.
It’s no secret that Dave Grohl was the drummer for Nirvana when Kurt Cobain passed. (I personally don’t believe it was suicide). It is also rumored that Dave Grohl lost his mother, Virginia, in July (strictly a rumor - nothing has been confirmed on this).
On Sept 3, several musicians gathered at London’s Wembley Stadium for a six-plus hour concert honoring Taylor Hawkins. There will also be 2 more tribute concerts later this month in Los Angeles.
For today’s post, I thought I would share 10 of my favorite Foo Fighter tunes (in no particular order). I wanted to put them all in one big video for you, but due to copyrights, etc I ended up creating a playlist. Please take a moment to give them a listen.
