Was anybody else at this amazing concert and, before anyone demands this be put in the personal section, it says on Brian's website that Roger was present in the audience.
(i didn't see him but he wos probably seated and I wos rockin away at the front!)
The Foos drummer came out front to sing one song and said just before he began that "this is for my buddy Rog",
Is anyone making a connection here, or do we think it's just coincidence?

The concert was amazing as we managed to squeeze into second row! But even though I didn't find out until today that Roger was even there, (or I would have kept my eyes peeled) I did wonder at the time if he could be talking about our Roger. I knew he has played at a Foo Fighters concert recently but at the time I thought it was more wishful thinking that he was referring to Roger Taylor.
Now though I'm not so sure!
Thanks

Odds are he was talking about our Rog. After all, Taylor Hawkins real name is Oliver, and he's only called Taylor coz he loves Rog.

But what a gig. And does anyone else think they Dave Grohl just gets better and better at the guitar?

Also, what was it Taylor's drum kit said - Captain Mayhem was it?

Sounds like a great show/concert.

Glad Taylor gave a tip of the hat to Roger! :D

I just went on Brian's web site.

Go on the main menu for news and Brian has a post from 12/18/2005 that also says that...

... Brian and his daughters and some of his friends attended the Saturday 12/17/2005 Foos' Earl Court show...

...besides Roger attending the Foos' show on Sunday 12/18/2005 as well!

Taylor's drum kit said Captain Beyond on it and I agree the concert, lights, sound the whole package was amazing! Hope Roger enjoyed it as much as we did.

CAPTAIN BEYOND! THANK YOU! That's been bugging since Monday morning. I wanted to write it on my bass-drum too!

Actually Dan, I think he's mentioned them before, come to think of it, I'm sure his band the Coattail Riders have covered them.
