All great things start small. True story, the Beatles were once dreamers with rogue haircuts. Dolly Parton was raised in Locust Ridge, in a small house with no running water or electricity.
Need more proof? Go to the Foo Fighters social accounts, where rock monsters share a time capsule that puts everything in perspective.
To celebrate their first quarter of a century, Dave Grohl and company published a photo of their first presentation. It is not a show at the stadium. Or an encounter in the arena. No, it's a party in Seattle, with a Grohl with a new face on the front with guitar and microphone.
The post says: "There is a moment in the history of all bands when you decide it is time to load the equipment from the training space and bring the music to people for the first time. This was ours, 25 years ago today. Barrel party at the Marine Store, Seattle Wa … ”
A separate message continues: “25 years later, the stage fright and fear may be gone, but the love of making music with my friends is stronger than ever. Happy birthday, friends.

Grohl was already a star in music circles, having done his part to change the world as a drummer for Nirvana, now a member of the Hall of Fame. With the Foos, Grohl started again, whose photographic evidence is available for all of us to see. The Foos did not emerge perfectly formed, ready to fill the largest stages on Earth.
Earlier this week, the Foos announced that they would hit the road for a 25-year journey that will see them playing in the same cities as during the 1995 tour, when Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear hit the road in a Dodge van. It is aptly named The Van Tour 2020. Rockers have also released a new album this year.
