Weezer Made Dave Grohl Cry

On Saturday night, Weezer played Brazil’s Rock in Rio. Foo Fighters were also booked to play and you may know-Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, has always been quick to give thanks for Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl's original band Nirvana. He has even said Nirvana was a big reason he started Weezer. Cuomo told the crowd, “We’re gonna cover a song from Dave Grohl’s old band to tide you over until the main course in a few minutes.”


When Foo Fighters took the stage later on, Grohl dedicated “Big Me” to Weezer. “Tonight I’m gonna dedicate this one to Weezer,” he said. “I was backstage and I heard Weezer play the ‘Lithium’ song. I gotta be honest, I cried a little bit. I did! I miss playing that song. I miss it, so I’m happy to hear Weezer play it again. So this one goes out to the sweet Weezer.”
