According to the 48-year-old rockstar, Prince Harry dropped in on him when he was in London getting his leg fixed, after doing a stage dive in Gothenburg back in 2015 that went nastily wrong. The royal even brought him a little gift to make hospital life a little easier.

Foo Fighters Issue Statement After Ticketing Chaos For London Gig


Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters have released a statement regarding the ticketing chaos that preceded their huge gig at London’s O2 Arena last night, which saw scores of ticketholders turned away after a mix-up regarding identification.

Many fans turned up at Tuesday night’s sold-out gig in front of 20,000 fans, only to be refused entry when they couldn’t present photo ID matching the details of their booking – an arrangement that the venue said had been put in place at the request of the band to try to prevent second-hand selling and touting.

Fans were outraged to discover that their tickets were not valid, and many others complained that they had not been told about the arrangement before the gig.

Dave Grohl Wants To Impress Bandmates


Dave Grohl Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins

Dave Grohl always wants to ''impress'' his Foo Fighters bandmates.

The 'Walk' frontman is more ''nervous'' about what the rest of the group think of the songs he's written than the reception they get from fans.

He admitted to Australia's '60 Minutes' ''I want to impress the guys in the band. You know, when I'm in front of a vocal mic and Taylor's in the room listening to me sing, I'm more nervous about what Taylor thinks than whether it's going to go on the radio or anything like that.''

Everyone has had that experience when they click on a video expecting one thing and end up getting trolled with Rick Astley's 1987 number one hit 'Never Gonna Give You Up', but somehow it's much less annoying when it happens in the middle of a Foo Fighters concert.

So as the likes of David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Corbyn all hit Worthy Farm for the weekend, these were the five best sets of Glastonbury 2017 that are well worth re-watching from the comfort of home - accompanied by a great sound system.
