The Foo Fighters rode bikes around Lexington

The Foo Fighters perform tonight at Rupp Arena, and they’re preparing by…riding bikes around Lexington?

Oh yes, several members of the band (not Dave Grohl) biked around downtown Lexington yesterday. Jack Baugh, owner of Bicycle Face, posted on Facebook that keyboardist Rami Jaffee, bass guitarist Nate Mendel and drummer Taylor Hawkins came into the shop to rent some bikes to tour the town:

Rami came to town with the Foo Fighters and loved this thing so much he took it home! Thanks Rami, Nate, Jon, and Taylor for swinging by and renting some bikes. See you tonight.

In an interview with LEX18, Jack’s wife Amy VanWinkle said Jaffee enjoyed the experience so much he bought the bike he rode and gave the couple backstage passes to tonight’s show.

Here’s a picture of them on their adventure:

    Dave must still be, “Learning to walk again!!!”

    I’m just glad no one got hurt. They had to cancel the first scheduled appearance at the last minute. We’ve waiting 6 months for this.
