The story goes something like this.
Sometime back in 2002, famed Rolling Stone rock critic David Fricke hopped a flight from New York to Denmark to scope out the Scandinavian scene at the annual SPOT Music Festival in the city of Aarhus. Anticipating Fricke’s arrival, the Danish duo of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo quickly cobbled their band together, whipped up a short set of songs, renamed themselves as the Raveonettes and then hit the stage at the SPOT hoping the journalist could score the stateside credibility needed to springboard them into super-stardom.
Ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl formed Foo Fighters, an American alternative rock band from Seattle Washington, back in 1994. Over the course of the band’s existence, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys. (Photos © live4ever)
