On Tuesday night the Foo Fighters played a “secret” show in Tarzana, CA, where the band showcased a number of songs from their new album that hits stores sometime next year. The 500 or so fans in attendance received an unexpected treat as Foo Fighters‘ front man Dave Grohl staged an impromptu Nirvana reunion as he welcomed Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear to the stage to perform Marigold – marking the first time the trio had played together live since 1997. The song, which was the B-side to Heart Shaped Box, and which Grohl sang on, was his only solo contribution to the band.

Finally, the indelible image of The Beatles that graces the cover of Abbey Road may arguably be the most famous and iconic album covers of all time. The pedestrian crossing where the picture was taken of the Fab Four on the morning of August 8, 1969, and has been innumerously replicated over the years, has been designated as a site of national importance by the British government. So, the crossing can be altered but only with the approval of the local authorities which would make a decision based on the site’s historic significance, function and condition.
