UK Foo Fighters

In My Hero: UK Foo Fighters, we get access all areas to the curious double life of the Harrogate Dave Grohl and discover what happened when he met the real Foos face-to-face.

Not so long ago, tribute bands were regarded as merely enthusiastic amateurs. Not anymore, it's now become a thriving business, and for some, the imitation borders on obsession. In My Hero: UK Foo Fighters we discover the extraordinary double life of Harrogate regional manager and weekend Dave Grohl, aka Jay Apperley, and how his uber-fandom enabled him to fulfill the ultimate tribute fan fantasy: performing live on stage with his heroes. This is one of a series of three short films, each one featuring the tribute acts to this year's three Glastonbury headliners: The Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran.
