Australian politician thanks Foos for charity work

An Australian politician has publicly thanked the Foo Fighters for their help in raising money after the tragic floods that devastated Queensland recently. 

Anna Bligh met with the rockers before their gig in Brisbane last night, March 27, and chatted with them about their commendable fundraising efforts. She told an Australian news company:

"He (Dave Grohl) said, "this is what I know how to do. I don't know how to fix people's roofs, but I know how to make music and make money","

"They wanted to speak about how many people were out of their homes... they are genuinely interested. They were wanting to help."

She added:

"They are an iconic international rock band and them coming here to raise money for us is a gift," 

The band, according to Bligh, helped raise over £160 million for the cause. Watch part of their concert here:
