Foo Fighters 12/30/20

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl continues to speak out to support music venues. In October the band played an acoustic set in support of the Save Our Stages Act. Now Grohl is grateful that the $900 billion stimulus bill that was signed into law on Sunday evening includes funding for independent music venues that have been closed throughout the pandemic.

He took to social media and wrote: “A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the Save Our Stages Act, which passed yesterday as a part of the economic stimulus bill.”

The bill includes $15 billion in dedicated funding for live venues, independent movie theaters, and cultural institutions.

SIDE NOTES

  • Grohl shared memories of his own experiences playing smaller venues, including the Troubadour, saying: “As you’ve heard from all the stories we’ve told, each of us has had some pretty amazing experiences in this club, but there are lots of smaller venues like this around the world that need your support right now.”
  • Another Quote: “These memories and experiences that we have here were life-changing and formative experiences that inspired us to play music. I can only imagine there are millions and millions of other people just like us that have done the same and it’s made their lives a better place.”
