A video was released today of 1,000 musicians (the Rockin’1000) playing “Learn to Fly” by Foo Fighters to ask Dave Grohl to come and play in Cesena, Italy. In Italian, the description of the YouTube video read: “1000 musicisti suonano Learn to Fly dei Foo Fighters per chiedere a Dave Grohl di venire a suonare a Cesena.”
The video was directed by Anita Rivaroli and Alberto Viavattene, and edited by Matteo Stefani. Foo Fighters just responded on Twitter by saying, “Che bello, Cesena,” which translates to “How lovely, Cesena” or “How Nice, Cesena.”

Dave Grohl discussed rumors of Foo Fighters playing Glastonbury next year in a new interview with Q Magazine.
“All of those stories about me talking to Michael Eavis are complete bullshit. I’ve never spoken to, met, or even contacted him in my life. I sent one email to Emily and her husband, apologising for missing the event, and she invited me to come back someday, even just to camp out and watch the show for the weekend. I read all of those articles saying we confirmed for next year and just laughed. Total fucking bullshit. Of course, I’d love to come back and play Glastonbury! But don’t believe everything that you read, kids…”
Grohl also said Led Zeppelin is helping him heal his broken leg, which is what caused Foo Fighters to cancel their Glastonbury performance and several other high profile European concerts.
“It’s funny, ever since I started playing the drums my right calf muscle has been twice the size of my left from stomping the hell out of my kick drum pedal,” he told Q. “Now it looks like a sad little chicken wing.” To help bulk up, Grohl says he’s been “air drumming along to Led Zeppelin three times a day.”
