Foo Fighters

Having commemorated their tenth anniversary with a year-plus run commencing with a double studio album hailed by the New York Times as "an unexpected magnum opus," a sold out arena tour built on that first disc's rock foundation followed by a toned down and intimate theater trek that highlighted the softer side showcased on that record's second half and capped off by a headlining gig at London's Hyde Park for a crowd of 85,000, the question looms larger than any in the Foo Fighters' career to date: What do they do for an encore?
All I can say is "Hail yeah!" I like this band. Former guitarist of Nirvana climbs up to become the famous guitarist/vocal of Foo Fighers "Ain't it the life" Dave Grohl.
