20 Years Ago - Foo Fighters & Krist Novoselic Cover Zeppelin at Bumbershoot

September 1, 2017

Happy Bumbershoot Weekend, Rockaholics! My rad co-worker Steve Migs recently stumbled upon this awesome video - THANK YOU INTERNET - and it's an absolute gem from Seattle's Bumbershoot in 1997.

 

As the story goes, Foo Fighters were playing Bumbershoot that year on KISW's stage (hence the banner behind the band) and went into their 4th encore song - a cover of Led Zeppelin's 'Communication Breakdown' - when they invited Krist Novoselic on stage. Apparently this was the first time he had been on stage with Dave Grohl and Pat Smear since the final days of Nirvana. A pretty legendary day for anyone who was at the show!

 

For those venturing to Bumbershoot this weekend, have an EXCELLENT time living up this long-standing Seattle tradition!

 

Happy Rocking,
