Foo Fighters Lead Singer Follows Through On Promise To Aussie Miners
Little acts of random kindness are always a nice piece to pass around these days. They do not receive as much press, but here on ‘Razzi, thet get top billing. Lead singer of the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl, is making good on his offer to have beer with two formely trapped Australian miners. From the article,
“According to contactmusic.com, Grohl had sent a message to Todd Russell and Brant Webb when they were trapped in the mine saying, ‘Two tickets to any Foos show, anywhere and two cold beers.” Grohl sent the message on the 11th day of their ordeal, after learning that they had requested Foo Fighters’ songs on an iPod to help them drown out the drilling sound as workers sought to rescue them.'”
“Grohl says: ‘I was willing to foot the bill to have them come half way around the world just to hang out and have a beer, and then it turned out they couldn’t come. I’m not having just one beer with those dudes. We’re going for it. This is going to be a big night.'”
Nice to see some down-to-earth celebs following through. Seems like those two are in for a big night!
