I'd like to thank the Foo Fighters for their rockin and inspiring performance in Nashville and for letting me hang out backstage with so many great people. Dave Grohl has been an influence on me since the early 90s when I was learning his Nirvana drum parts note for note. He has become one of the greatest rock n roll songwriters of our generation and he continues to inspire me with his music, documentaries and concept albums. It was a treat to meet him and see that he is a truly cool, humble, compassionate, funny and sincere person. Thanks for the inspiration Foo Fighters!
