Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Foo Fighters are back, and it feels so good. Last week, the band premiered a video for "White Limo" that immediately went viral (and rightfully so, for the Lemmy content alone). Earlier this week, they unveiled their new single "Rope" to immediate excitement and acclaim. There is a tremendous amount of excitement over their upcoming album Wasting Light (whose cover art was just revealed), mostly because frontman Dave Grohl has promised that it's a lot louder and more raw (and also because it was produced by Butch Vig and features a guest spot by fellow former Nirvana member Krist Novoselic). On Wednesday (February 23), Grohl took the stage at Brixton Academy in London to receive the Godlike Genius award at the 2011 Shockwave NME Awards (a prize he dedicated to his late former bandmate Kurt Cobain). For an encore, Grohl and the Foo Fighters took the stage with the Who singer Roger Daltrey to play "Young Man Blues" at the start of a two hour set that also included all of the band's biggest hits (including "Everlong," "Learn to Fly" and the just-released "Rope").
They weren't the only band shredding, as Linkin Park played a blistering set at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
