Lorenzo Setti is an Italian musician (drummer) with a penchant for getting together huge crowds of people to rock the fuck out. Last Summer, he gathered together 1,000 musicians in Cesena, Italy to play ‘Learn to Fly’ by the Foo Fighters in an effort to woo Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters to come perform a concert in Italy. I never saw if the Foo Fighters went and played in Italy or not, but it appears as if the Rockin’ 1000 has become far more than just a chance to woo the Foo Fighters and this project has taken on a life of its own.
In the second installment of the Rockin’ 1000, one thousand musicians met once again in Cesena, Italy and this time around they performed ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes because as we all know it’s the ONLY FUCKING SONG that people from Europe know. Seriously, this song plays at every goddamn sporting event in Europe MULTIPLE TIMES.
