EP (Free Download): Saint Cecilia by Foo Fighters
As UndercoverRockLife, I usually do not talk about big bands, and with big I mean litterally huge, global bands. My field is different, you all know this. Even if sometimes, as in case of David Bowie post, I like talking about artist which are milestiones and groud-breaking artists with a capitol A.
Bear in mind this type of split, it makes things easier to understand what is valuable from what doesn’t deserve one minute of your attention even comparing to the huge market figures!
Foo Fighters are undoubtedly one of the biggest band, a global band. After have accepted the unconventional invitation from 10.000 from Cesena (Italy), and have canceled the European tour following the facts in Paris, Dave Grohl and Co. shared a significant letter to explain why and how this last project named Saint Cecilia has changed tone and meaning. In my opinion, this put the band – for outstanding reasons – amongst the Artist with a capitol A. Not many bands can be so far, be sure!
Saint Cecilia is the latest EP from the band, can be downloaded for free at this link (here). and here below you can read the letter from Dave Grohl.
Now, tell me, are or are not Foo Fighters a band with a capitol B?
Letter from Dave Grohl:
Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems…
The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.
Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.
To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.
