On Saturday night, Dave Grohl took a break from Foo Fighters’ ongoing world tour to headline a benefit concert for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. The solo acoustic set featured performances of Foo Fighters favorites such as “Everlong”, “Times Like These”, and “My Hero”, as well as a cover of Adele’s “When We Were Young” featuring Grohl’s 12-year-old daughter, Violet, singing lead vocals. Violet and Grohl’s nine-year-old daughter, Harper, also joined their father for Foo Fighters’ “The Sky Is a Neighborhood” and Queen’s “We Will Rock You”.
Despite having a rock star for a father, Violet is confident in her own talents. “I remember her saying, ‘Dad, you’re not even the best singer in the family,'” Grohl recounted prior to playing “When We Were Young”. “And she’s right!” her proud papa proclaimed.
