Rock Out Your Winter Blues

If you are fed up with winter, the Foo Fighters are sure to rock you out of it. The band, formed by Nirvana's drummer Dave Grohl, appears at the John Labatt Centre Thursday, March 20. My favourite Foo Fighter CD is Skin and Bones. I saw them open for the enigmatic Bob Dylan at the JLC in 2006, and was impressed by their acoustic arrangements. I particularly enjoyed the addition of a violinist, Petra Haden. The band has just won several Grammys; Best Rock Album for Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace and Best Hard Rock Performance for "The Pretender", so I can imagine their show will be quite a bit louder this time around.
