I think he is suggesting Andrew WK is so wild, he might destroy the venue. The police had to come to a Sled Island gig he did.

Anyone catch the "Kiss guy" video- totally awesome- it's like a fantasy I've had since I was a kid. Foo fighters are so great live and so much fun


"Last night Dave Grohl made a point to call out the dude wearing the Gene Simmons "KISS" makeup down front and invited him onstage. Apparently the dude was holding up a sign earlier in the night that said "Let me play Monkey Wrench..." and Dave obliged. As surprised as "Kiss Guy" was at actually being invited onstage, it's apparent that Dave was equally surprised when the dude got up there and totally and didn't "#### the bed in front of his home town" but instead he absolutely killed it! (Be sure to pay attention to the end of his fist guitar solo and the beginning of the second verse at 3:24 where Dave laughs out loud in disbelief and then forgets the words to the song!)

Sidenote - on the way out of the parking lot after the show, we happened to spot "Kiss Guy" and we decided to stop and take a photo with him. His name is Yayo Sanchez and he's an Austin native and the ticket to the Foo Fighters show was a gift from his mother for his birthday. How cool is that? Happy birthday, Yayo - and great job up there last night!"
Typically fans invited on stage have been introduced before hand and rehearsed a little. That first little lick he does coming out of the intro is a live show add on and he knew to how to play it and that it would be him playing it.

Nope. It wasn't staged at all.

He had no idea they'd ask him on stage. But he is a renowned guitar player in his own right (he's played with some famous musicians before) and allegedly had a sign that said something like "i can play guitar, invite me onstage".

If you can't have Lindsay Buckingham, Mike Campbell is a pretty good substitute.

I logged on to buy Fleetwood Mac tickets today and holy moly they are expensive. 200 bucks to sit anywhere remotely close to acceptable. Second bowl tickets are 300+.

I love their music but this is outrageous.

I'm headed to Toronto in June to see Robert Plant at the Molson Amphitheater, with Sheryl Crow as the opener...yup very excited. I haven't seen Plant since the UnLedded tour with Page in '94

This event has really gone down hill from the years of the hip and Bryan Adams. Was hoping to see Rush instead of Fogerty

John Fogerty and Melissa Ethridge isn't really a step back in their line-up history. There's been stronger and weaker. They also had counting crows and third eye blind one year, neither of which draw more than 2000 fans on their own.

Also, Rush has stated they didn't close the door on making new music but are done touring.

Yep. That's so Billy Corgan to finally cave into fan demands and bring the band back together but not quite get there.
