Last night we went to see the Foo Fighters. I was thinking that next to Paul McCartney and Weezer I think this is one of the bands I’ve seen live several times and still enjoy every single time I watch them. Lolla Pre Show 2011, Lolla 2011, San Diego 2012, Des Moines 2017.

Personally, the highest point of the night was when they played Walk. Walk is one of those songs that really get to me. I was in a really really low point of my life when that song came out. I remember playing it over and over again until I did that, I learned to walk again. (The other song that helped me get out of my emotional hell hole was Weezer – The Good Life, but that’s another story).

Learning to walk again

I believe I’ve waited long enough

Where do I begin?

Learning to talk again

Can’t you see I’ve waited long enough?

Where do I begin?
