Grohl Buys Miner A Beer, As Promised
Rocker DAVE GROHL has made good on his promise to buy a rescued Australian miner a beer. In May (06), the FOO FIGHTERS frontman sent a message to TODD RUSSELL and BRANT WEBB when they were trapped in a mine in Tasmania saying, "Two tickets to any Foos show anywhere and two cold beers." Grohl sent the message on the eleventh day of their ordeal, after learning they had requested Foo Fighters' music on an iPod to help them drown out the sound of drilling as rescuers cautiously tunnelled towards them. They were rescued after being trapped for 15 days underground after a rock fall. And the kind-hearted musician met up with Brant and his friends at an acoustic Foo Fighters show at the Sydney Opera House last week (ends08OCT06).
