Foo Fighters Garage Tour

The band was looking for an interesting way of entertaining their fans, and aside of making new songs, they decided to do something more extreme. Go to the houses of their fans, and turn their garages in mini-stages all around the US so they can promote the new album “Wasting Light” in a completely different way. Actually, all the songs from the album were recorded in a garage. All fans loved the idea, because literally, they can be the host of a Foo Fighters’ gig. Amazing, right? With this tour they have proofed that no clubs or arenas are needed for a good gig. However, without proper support, organizing this kind of event wouldn’t be that easy.

Musical Style

Foo Fighters’ musical style has been considered as a combination of post-grunge, alternative rock, and hard rock. When Dave Grohl made the first steps of the band, his music was very similar to the one of his previous band, Nirvana. The greatest influence in his composing had Kurt Cobain, Nirvana’s singer and guitarist. Foo Fighters combined quiet stanzas with powerful choruses in their compositions, got the influences by the musical tastes of Nirvana and bands like Bay City Rollers, The Knack, ABBA, and Beatles. Dave was always saying: “I can hear the song in my head before I finish it.” When Grohl finally completed the band, his teammates collaborated on the arrangements for their songs.

Awards and Nominations

Foo Fighters’ first Grammy Award was for the music video of “Learn to Fly” in 2000, and they’ve won ten more in total, including four Grammy Awards in the category of Best Rock Album.
