The heartbreaking events of November 13th had a profound effect on the world, and the Foo Fighters are no exception. Along with canceling the rest of their European tour, the band released a free EP called Saint Cecilia Sunday night in honor of the victims in the Paris attacks. Dave Grohl also wrote a long letter to fans with details on his leg injury, travels during the Sonic Highway journey and a tribute to Paris.
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.
