Talking The Flu Fighters aka Get well soon Dave

As your aware if you saw the RAR set or the livestream of it from germany, Daves vocals were fried due to him catching a cold, so I just wanted to say fair play to Dave for trying his best to go on with the show and not cancel it 2 songs in like some divas in the music world have done for waaay less, but even if he did we wouldve understood since you could hear it in his voice, and thats not a instrument you can replace easily without proper rest/treatment, or it could mess up his singing voice for good, it has happened to some artists over the years. Anyways get well soon Mr Grohl, you are My Hero.

And now for some song title puns meant in fun

Cheer up dave your nose is running
The Best of Flu
This is a cold
Sneeze Days
Big Sneeze
Walking after flu
Cold Today in the Sun
Times like sneeze

Kudos to him and the rest of the band for carrying on with the gig. It may not have been the wisest of decisions, but we know Dave is a trouper. Just hope he can rest up and get well in the next couple of days..

Maybe it would be best for Dave to change the setlist to give more songs to Chris and Taylor to sing, perhaps even throwing in a few covers.

Hope he doesn't do himself any harm by performing when he is ill.

I am really looking forward to the two London gigs.

I didn't caught the webcast, was it that bad?
That's a good thing about rock, voice is not the main thing.



Hope he takes care and gets better soon.

Oh no I hope he is better real soon, it's an anxious run up as I couldn't cope with another Wembley type cancellation (which was completely understandable)

I know... I'm a bit twitchy. They'll only cancel if he really has to though so if they do its because he's very poorly indeed.
I have a cold too and really don't feel like running around a stage entertaining thousands of people so he's done better than me!

You would think so, this is a big stadium show and people will definitely be already travelling by now. Let's hope they've made the right decision and his voice is ok.

Let the others sing the songs for an entire gig

Throw the Hawk on lead vocals out front.

Let Chris cover lead and back-fill Dave as best as poss with Pat doing more between (Champagne) rhythm (re) fills...

And just let DG fucking loose on drums all night ...
