It took one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in history to bring the Foo Fighters back to Richmond, Va., for the first time in 16 years, but Dave Grohl and the gang made sure everyone in attendance got more than their money's worth.
An unknown band called the Holy S---s are playing a show tonight at a small club in Brighton, England, and another tomorrow in London. Why should you care? Because the Holy S---s are actually arena rockers Foo Fighters.
