Dave Grohl Responds To 1000 Foo Fighter Fans' Special Request

(Radio.com) One of the coolest viral videos that we've seen lately was by the Rockin' 1000, a project spearheaded by a Foo Fighters fan named Fabio Saffagnini, in which a thousand fans got together to record a video of their performance of the Foo Fighters' "Learn To Fly."

The project wasn't just for fun, though. Zaffagnini actually had a very specific purpose for the event in mind: to attract the attention of Dave Grohl in hopes of bringing the band to Romagna, Italy, for a concert, where he says they haven't played since 1997.

Like everyone else who saw the video, Grohl was pretty blown away by the video, and posted his own response to the Foo Fighters Facebook page. He said, in Italian, "Hello, good evening, it's David. Forgive me that I don't speak Italian, only a little. This video, how beautiful, so beautiful, thank you so much. We are coming, I promise, we'll see you soon. Thank you so much. Love you all, bye."
