are Foo Fighters ?
Near the end of WWII, the U.S. Air
Force patrolling German airspace encountered highly maneuverable
balls of light in the area between Hagenau in Alsace-Lorraine
and Neustadt an der Weinstrasse in the Rhine Valley. These unidentified
flying objects came to be referred to as "Foo Fighters",
or "Kraut Balls" by those who believed the objects
were a secret German weapon.
Who are these Former Members I keep hearing about?
Well as the band first started out,
William Goldsmith was the drummer. However in 1997 during the
recording of The Colour and The Shape Goldsmith left the Foo's.
Pat Smear left after the first half of the 1997 tour and was replaced
by Franz Stahl. Likewise, Franz, who toured with the Foo's during
1997/1998 left the band during the recording of There Is Nothing
Left To Lose.
