Rockers the Foo Fighters replaced Nine Inch Nails at the Mtv Movie Awards
last weekend (04JUN05) but insist they sympathise with NIN leader Trent Reznor
over his decision to pull out of the event.
Reznor pulled the plug on his performance over a disagreement with MTV
bosses over the group's insistence of using a controversial image of PRESIDENT
George W Bush as a stage backdrop.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl jumped at the chance to perform at the
MTV Movie Awards at the last minute, but insists he understands why pal Reznor
felt the need to pull out.
He says, "I respect Trent a lot, musically and otherwise. I kind of feel
like we're doing the same thing, but without the banner."
