Foo Fighters dedicate Glastonbury song to late fan


We all know straight-talking London girl Adele has maybe a bit of a potty mouth but she was outdone by Foo Fighters' front man Dave Grohl at Glastonbury over the weekend when he dropped over 33 F bombs on stage.

Tracks such as "No Surprises" tempted Thom Yorke into a brief political outburst when he ominously pleasured the crowd with "see you later, Theresa" as the song, with lyrics such as "bring down the government, they don't speak for us", came to a close. Thank you so much you guys. Will be thinking of yous at Glasto.

Dave, 48, wrote: "Jon - Dave here".

Helmut Kohl, German reunifier, dies
German Chancellor Helmut Kohl , shown in 1989, oversaw the reunification of his country after the fall of the Berlin Wall . In the UK, he is remembered for his differences over the European Union with the late UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.


It certainly was for Jon, who said it was Laura's "swansong". "It is incredible. I am over the moon". Laura must have engineered this somehow as I was having a really bad week after her funeral when it hit me like a wave. I was blown away.

Speaking of the power of social media, Grohl added: "It's pretty incredible".

Laura, a teacher from Plymouth, raised more than £30,000 for charity after being diagnosed with breast cancer eight years ago.

Donald Trump welcomes 'true friend' as PM Modi arrives in Washington
Urging the Indian diaspora to "keep the bridge with India", Modi said that the younger generations of Indians must be kept aware. Looking forward to his meeting with President Trump, Prime Minister Modi said India and the US have shared values.


Speaking to the Canadian entertainment news site ET Canada prior to the gig, Grohl said: "A while back I read - it's the power of social media - there was this woman who had breast cancer and she had been fighting it for a long time and became an activist raising awareness".

Grohl also won hearts in Cornwall past year when he wrote to Cornwall Council to support a young band from Praa Sands after they were banned from practising due to noise levels.

It didn't promise a dedication, but Foo Fighters being the friendly legends that they are, they did Jon and Laura proud.

Sanches would ideally want more playing time at this stage of his career, considering that he is still developing and is far from a finished product.


"Until then it's an uphill struggle convincing the rest of the music world that Cornwall is a serious touring destination, but we're working on it!"
