Talking Foo Story from an Old Timer

Ten years ago today, kiddies, the legendary postboard show took place at the Troubadour in LA. It was my first Foo show, and it was awesomesauce to the infinity power.

If you're so inclined to hear how it went down for lil ol me, read on.

Happy Foo-versary, fellow Troub vets!

Eek! Re: Foo Story from an Old Timer

Oh My god. You just told the story or should I say fantasy of so many of us women with the big crush on Mr. Grohl. You are very lucky. I have never been able to get close enough to have that kind of fun. I will have to live through this story for a while. Awesome story.
