Foo Fighters� Dave Grohl Says Weezer's Cover Of �Lithium� Made Him Cry


Just before Foo Fighters took the stage at the Rock in Rio Festival last weekend, Weezer performed a cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium.”

 Dave Grohl was watching and commented: “I gotta be honest, I cried a little bit. I did! I miss playing that song. I miss it, so I’m happy to hear Weezer play it.”

The former Nirvana drummer then repaid the favor by dedicating his performance of “Big Me” to his fellow rock band. That all happened in the same show we reported on yesterday, where Grohl revealed Foo Fighters were headed back to the studio to work on their next album.

The festival was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
