Foos entertain troops for Fourth

July 6, 2009 - Andy Gray
Warren-born rocker Dave Grohl and his band, Foo Fighters, spent the Fourth of July with President Barack Obama and more than 1,200 active military troops and their families on the South Lawn of the White House.

Foo Fighters provided the entertainment for a private concert, barbecue and fireworks display. According to the band’s publicist, Nasty Little Man PR, the group played plenty of Foo favorites as well as the live debut of “Wheels,” which will be featured on an upcoming greatest hits collection by the band.

The still-untitled album, which is set for release in November, will include two new songs, both produced by Butch Vig, whose credits include Nirvana’s “Nevermind” and Smashing Pumpkins’ “Siamese Dream.”

They will join hits like “The Pretender,” “All My Life,” “Learn To Fly,” “My Hero,” “Times Like These” and “Best Of You.”
