Exclamation Chris Shiflett playing London, UK this summer

Supporting the dude from Jet. Playing the 100 Club, what a cracking venue.

Just got home from it. Lots of good banter between songs. Rami joined him for the last couple and did an accordion solo. Met Chris and rami in the bar afterwards. Happy to chat and got pics and autographs. Will post tomorrow when sober. Was hoping Dave would be at the back of the crowd but Chris complaining of jet lag. No more than a 150 people and that's being generous. Nic cester after was awesome. Didn't rely on jet songs. Only played one in tribute to his nan that died this morning. I told him that it's good he doesn't play jet stuff and he said tell that to my manager. (He also came out after gig and chated photos and signed). All in all an awesome gig. And added bonus fo me chatting to 2 foos and nic. I'll meet Dave one day before I die. In my top 5 gigs probably for meeting everyone

I just fucking love how the FF guys can do still stuff like this, solo, semi-solo, Chevy etc and so long as it's not branded FF in every corner just be "guys playing music". It says so much about them as people and musicians to want to do it, they sure don't need to financially, and it says a lot about the branding and "machinery" differences between one gig and another when you are (or not) "in the machine" so to speak.

Long may it be able to continue. Thanks for posting - love little updates like this

Hey guys,

So I may have caught up with Chris (with a few other journos) while he was over in London this week for a chat.

Read my write up with some photos over here: Interview: Chris Shiflett, Honky-Tonk Foo Fighter

Nice one Kal, must've been great to photograph Chris officially, they turned out nice! Good in-depth interview as well.

Thanks guys!

It was indeed nice to chat to him, although it was tough as there were 4 of us fighting to get our questions in and we only had 30 mins for the chat and 2 mins for photos.

He did mention the Foo Board but I had to cut that bit out of the interview and didn't get a chance to follow through on it.

Hi guys
it's been late as I had no clue this forum is still alive but maybe you will find it interesting.
I've been at both Chris gigs in London and took some pictures of Chris and Rami. Unfortunately, due to my long absence, I'm no longer allowed to post any links in here before I get "trusted" again
If anyone is interested in seeing them I can provide link on private (If that works)
