Foo Fighters Grohl and Shiflett Show Marriage Equality Support


Both Chris Shiflett and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters were sporting white knots at the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute honoring Neil Diamond on Friday night. Grohl also wore his to the Grammys.

Said Grohl at MusiCares: "Anybody know about whiteknot.org? You know what that’s about? It's I believe in love and I believe in equality and I believe in marriage equality."

  1. That's cool, though I thought Grohl also believed HIV has no relation to AIDS...or am I misremembering that?

  2. Does this make up for all of the AIDS-denialist crap the band was putting out a few years ago?

  3. I definitely remember the "HIV does not cause AIDS" schtick from about ten years ago. I think they even had a benefit concert for some AIDS-denialist organization.

    My guess is that they'd give some equivocal answer and talk about how much they love gay people rather than say "we were wrong about this." Then again, anyone idiotic enough to follow health advice from rock stars probably can't be helped much anyway.

  7. Is Neil Diamond gay? Seriously, this thread is making me think he might be and I'm behind on the times if he is.
