My Hero: UK Foo Fighters
Tribute bands used to mean podgy men in Beatles suits and hen parties. Not anymore, it’s a big business, and for some, the imitation borders on obsession.
In My Hero: UK Foo Fighters we discover the extraordinary double life of Harrogate car salesman and weekend Dave Grohl, aka Jay Apperley, his unglamorous life on the road and how his uber-fandom enabled him to fulfill the ultimate tribute band fantasy: performing live on stage with his heroes.
This is one of a series of three short films each one featuring the tribute acts to this year’s three Glastonbury headliners, The Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran.
