    Saw the Foo's show in Sacramento this past Saturday.  Great 3-hour performance.......they did a great cover of "Let There Be Rock" by
    AC DC.  They played for over 3 hours!   The Struts opened, and I predict they will be very well know in the next few months.....not sure if they will have longevity, or end up like The Darkness in terms of disappearing after a promising start,
    Was at the show in Sacramento as well. Always one of my favorite bands but never was sold on them live. Way too much grandstanding before, during and after each song. Sometimes just wish they could blitz through 6 or 7 songs without all the theatrics. Dave must not think the songs themselves can carry the night. Still a fun show though, they play their guts out for 3 hours, covers were tremendous. It's an over the top night of Rock N Roll. There was a time when it was about the songs but it feels like it's more about them now. Either way I've seen them live 7 times now and would pay money to see them again. You just have to know what to expect. Even a 3 minute song takes 6 with all the extra jamming and talking.
    I think Dave's just trying to have fun with the whole thing.

    They put out new music and tour to support it. That’s what good bands do.

    LOVE the Ute!!! That looks awesome. I remember being at that pub in Sydney in the early 2000. I was living down there and was in the city to get tickets to the Olympics and that pub was right near the ticket outlet.

    Looks like it would have been a great arvo

    I'll ride the wave where it takes me
