Week 35. Late Sunday night.
I went to the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert in Wembley stadium in London yesterday. I know I never really been listening to Foo Fighters (I actually wrote about it a couple of months ago when Taylor died) but the occasion was too big. Some friends from Paris were coming for the gig so I tagged along with them, without knowing exactly what to expect.
It was one of the most moving nights (days, should I say, the gig was actually 6h long) as much for the lineup as for the emotional roller coaster we went through.
I've been to regularly to music concerts since 18 and that lineup was for me a once-in-a-lifetime night, with a lineup of musicians I've been listening ot since I'm a teenager (Brian May, Paul McCartney, Lars Ulrich, Brian Johnson, Josh Homme, just to name a few). And even though I'm not a big Foo Fighter fan, it really felt like being part of a big family and we all ended up in tears.
It's hard to put feelings into words, so I'll stick to 5 amazing songs played last night, and for those interested, here is the whole setlist of the 6 hours, with all the musicians who played.
See you next weep everyone!
