Foo Fighters’ Bid Farewell to Letterman With ‘Everlong’


The Foo Fighters helped David Letterman bid farewell to his 33-year late-night career on Wednesday night, but the band also delivered a memorable performance of their hit “Everlong” on Letterman’s first show back after having open-heart surgery in 2000.

As Letterman explained Wednesday night, when he returned to The Late Show after the procedure, one of his requests for his first show back was to have the Foo Fighters perform “Everlong,” explaining that the song was “special to me. When Letterman’s people asked the band, they were on tour in South America, but that turned out not to be a problem.

Friend me on Facebook – if you dare. No one turned away.
