How Rick Astley Ended Up Singing With The Foo Fighters (NSFW)

Fresh from a trip to the pub, where he had a pint with a friend, Astley chatted about how he got onstage with Foo Fighters and why Dave Grohl and his band deserve every bit of success they've earned.

How did you end up onstage with Foo Fighters in Tokyo?That was very amazing, to be honest. I'm a closet rocker, myself. I play drums in a little power trio. In fact, the guy I've just a pint with, Simon, one of my best friends, he plays bass. We do it for charities, and that's why we can get away with it, because if we didn't do it for charity, we'd probably be very, very, very, very sad indeed. We just play all the punk songs we learned as kids when we were in garages.

We'll do anything that's gone through that sort of genre, if you like, which, obviously, is Foo Fighters as well. So I'm a bit of a fan of theirs. And when I saw that [Tokyo] gig come along, I just said, "Right, we've got to do that festival. I don't care where we're playing. I don't care if we're on the smallest stage at one o'clock in the afternoon, we're doing that festival. Because I want to go and see the Foo Fighters, and see them in that way."
