I was surprised and horrified the other day to have a story about the Foo Fighters appearing on my Facebook feed. Not because of their music.
The story by the NME was written by legendary music journalist Keith Cameron and involved the Foos first live gig in the UK.
Something stirred in my mind, before filling with nostalgia. It was June 3rd 1995 and their debut gig was at King’s College London. My alma mater. I was studying Classics at the time at King’s as well as being music editor of the student paper.
I immediately contacted my editor at the time to verify my whereabouts. Was I at the gig?
The jury is out whether I was actually at the gig. My editor Michelle was though, her hearing hasn’t recovered yet!
