January 24th, 2012 by joshhoffman

The Foo’s were in New York this week to play a sold out Madison Square Garden. Like usually, Dave Grohl and co. treated fans with a special guest, this time it was Joan Jett. The Foo Fighter’s joined Jett in a killer rendition of “Bad Reputation”. Things went so well, the next night the Foo’s appeared on Letterman and invited Jet out again.

A new article came out this week illustrating, that incase the world does come to an end, here’s how to survive. It listed a check list of materials that you MUST have. “Make sure to pick up some knowledge at the grocery store!”
Minimum survivalist checklist for staying put:
* Non-perishable food
* Clean drinking water
* Firearms and Ammunition
* Medical supplies and Medications
* Power supply: bio-diesel generator, solar panels
* Heat, chopped wood with stove
* Hand Tools
* Transportation
* Guard dogs
* Secured house or bunker
* Allied neighbours & family
* Transport – older car or horses
* Communication: ham radios, walkie-talkies
* Knowledge

And Jimmy Page to be Knighted?  Louise Mensch, a member of the British Parliament, has posted on Twitter that she is proposing that Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page receive a knighthood in the upcoming Queen’s Honors. The Daily Mail reported that Mensch tweeted: “I’ve proposed Jimmy Page. Waiting to see if that finds favor with Honors Directorate. I hope so. . . Clearly there is nobody more worthy of a knighthood and I am glad to say I have gathered support from every major record label in the U.K.”
