Default Average Age And Sex Of A Foo Fan?

This has probably been discussed a gazillion times before on here, but I'm new, so please forgive me?
Very curious about the typical age and gender of the FF fanbase.

I've never been to a Foo Fighters show, (they only ever play big festivals near me and i hate festivals.) but I have been a fan of Dave and his music since Nirvana. I am in the same age bracket as Dave and I am female.
I know loads of women in their 30's and 40's who are fans of FF and especially Dave. He's the thinking, rockin woman's sex symbol for sure!

I'm guessing this forum is mainly teen guys? And from videos of shows they get the typical male rock audience but with a lot of girls in there too.

Looking forward to hearing if you are male, female and roughly your age group. Yeah?

Oh I can assure you I'm ALL male I did have a nice birthday thanks!

Yeah, I'll go to Reading if I go to one of them but it depends on the rest of the line up that day for me. I don't really know if I can be arsed to see the boys at a festival and playing the same set I've seen so many times before. I'm still holding out for that Arena tour!

This poll discriminates not yet teenage kids, hermaphrodites and asexually reproducing organisms like bacteria.

Children are so fickle when it comes to music. One day they love Lemmy, the next its Beiber or nothing!

Hermaphrodites can vote in both catagories.

A child who goes from Lemmy to Beiber probably shouldn't have been born. Just sayin.
