Foo Fighters frontman meets up with mine victim

Dave Grohl raises a glass to Brant Webb

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has shared a beer with a victim of a mine collapse in Australia.

The singer met up with Brant Webb, who was stuck down Tasmania Beaconsfield gold mine for 14 days after it collapsed in May, at the band’s recent acoustic performance at Sydney Opera House.

During his ordeal, Brant was supplied with an iPod and he requested Foo Fighters tracks to listen to, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.


Word got back to Grohl and he pledged to buy Brant and his fellow captive Todd Russell a beer once he was freed from the mine.

Following the pair’s ordeal Grohl told Australian alternative radio station, Triple J: “I’m not just having one beer with those dudes, we’re going for it.”

Grohl finally fulfilled his promise when he met up with Brant and his friends backstage.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Foo Fighters will release the acoustic CD/DVD set ‘Skin And Bones’ in the UK on November 20 along with a ‘Skin And Bones’/’Live At Hyde Park’ double DVD on the same day.
