Foo Fighters Welcome Back Letterman

Rock outfit salutes talk-show host during his first appearance after heart surgery.

Foo Fighters launched into a raucous rendition of "Everlong" to welcome talk-show host David Letterman back to his "Late Show" post Monday. Letterman spent the past five weeks recuperating from quintuple bypass heart surgery. He said the rock outfit was his favorite band, and "Everlong," from 1997's The Colour and the Shape, was his favorite song. The Foos returned the salute by welcoming Letterman back in the middle of the performance, which was taped Friday.
