Here’s Music For Nations Label Manager Joel De’ath with his story of how the Foos rocked his world…

“They say birthdays kinda stop meaning so much when you get into your teens, but for me on the morning of my 15th birthday I got a present that changed the very fabric of my being. My brother Brian handed me a card, “there’d better be cash in this” I found myself thinking as I ripped open the envelope, but inside was a ticket for Foo Fighters’ London’s Brixton Academy show for the follow month.

“My first big gig. Yeah I’d been to see my other brother play pub gigs but Brixton Academy and the mighty Foo Fighters. Woah! This would be the band’s first UK show since their now legendary performance at Reading Festival which had fans climbing the tent poles.

“Now remember kids, this was gigging pre-phones in the air. We moshed and we moshed hard. I say ‘we’ but really I just hung on for dear life as the crowed whipped themselves into a tsunami. My jaw shook, it was fight or flight – an experience I’ve never been able to get again. My brother and I left covered in sweat, faces full of smiles and hearts full of music. Life. Changed.

“Fast forward 20 years and I’m backstage at the BBC Big Weekender. I managed a band who only a couple of months earlier Dave had tweeted about. We heard that Dave would like to say hi at some point during the day, but we didn’t expect him to come bursting into our tiny dressing room, whiskey in hand yelling… “WHO WANTS A DRINK!!?”.

“The rest of the evening was a bit of a blur. Side of stage, back stage, under the stage… It was everything the 15 year old Joel only ever dreamt about.  Even now I find myself getting emotional whilst listening to Foo Fighters. There’s not been a time when their music hasn’t been a part of my life.”

 – Joel De’ath.
