old, but kewl news

In May 2006, Dave Grohl sent a note of support to the two trapped miners in the Beaconsfield mine collapse in Tasmania, Australia. In the initial days following the collapse, one of the men requested an iPod with Foo Fighters songs to be sent down to them through a small hole. Grohl's note read, in part, "Though I'm halfway around the world right now, my heart is with you both, and I want you to know that when you come home, there's two tickets to any Foos show, anywhere, and two cold beers waiting for yous. Deal?"[5] In October 2006, one of the miners took up his offer, joining Grohl for a drink after the Foo Fighters acoustic concert at the Sydney Opera House. [6] Grohl wrote an instrumental piece for the meeting, which Grohl pledged he would include on the band's next album.[7] The song will appear on the Foo Fighters' upcoming album Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace, titled "The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners".
