Can we talk about the bad ass #chevymetal performances today at the #eatdrinksupport event at the LA food bank? Because I’m not sure I live on this planet anymore. We got to see Taylor’s kid kill it on drums, and many many more surprises (including Lisa Loeb singing David Bowie). Freakin nuts! #davegrohl #backbeatbbq #laregionalfoodbank #foofighters #taylorhawkins
