These tracks are taken from a BBC radio broadcast on the 9th June, which mixed songs played on both nights of the Foo Fighters double-header at Wembley. The broadcast set contains songs from over their career, or should I say Daves as a Foo, due to the fact the 1st record was just him alone, before bringing in Nate to play with the live band, then later adding Hawkins then Shiflett to what is now a stable, and very damn tight, rock band.
When he first released an album under the Foo Fighters banner, he was naturally, and perhaps unfairly, compared to former Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain. While it's obvious enough that Kurt would've been an influence on Daves playing and writing styles, it was a bit tough for him to be immediately compared to such a seminal band.
For that first album, self titled, Daves writing couldn't hold a candle to that of his deceased friend, and overall the album was rather patchy, though it did contain some great songs, notably I'll Stick Around and Big Me. As the band has grown and released more and more albums, Daves writing, helped of course by the other members, has grown exponentially. So much so, that his brand of more positive sounding rock music I think would outsell (and probably does) that of Nirvana, due to it's accessability.
Anyway, I'm rambling...thanks to Miki for this, and sorry for ripping it to MP3!
