The longtime singer of Cro-Mags, who now performs under a separate entity as Cro-Mags JM, has criticised the Foo Fighters for playing shows where everyone must be vaccinated.
John Joseph, who has dubbed the band the “Flu Pfizers”, said in a new interview that it’s a “bullshit” move from the legendary rockers.
He told The Void With Christina: “I forget what the dude’s name is – he’s in some big fuckking band — he’s, like, ‘I’m not playing any vaccinated-only shows.’ He was in a big English band; I forget what the name of them is,” began Joseph.
As Consequence Of Sounds points out, his opening remarks were likely referring to Stone Roses singer Ian Brown who in March stepped down from headlining play Warrington’s Neighbourhood Weekender because of its COVID-19 vaccination policy.
“[Then] you’ve got motherfuckers like Dave Grohl, who used to play drums for [D.C. hardcore band] Scream and open up for the Cro-Mags, now he’s with the Flu Pfizers, the Flu Fighters, and it’s, like, ‘We’re playing vaccinated-only shows,’” Jospeh continued.
