In 2014 a supergroup of epic proportions was formed. Meet the Rockin' 1,000, the brainchild of a marine geologist named Fabio Zaffagnini. He had a vision of gathering 1,000 musicians and singers of all skill levels, from all walks of life to perform a cover of the Foo Fighters tune "Learn To Fly" in his native Cesena, Italy. The event would be filmed and sent to the band to convince Dave Grohl and co. to come and play a show there. About a year later his vision became reality and the video went viral. Later that same year Foo Fighters performed a three hour set in that very village where Fabio's dream was first born.
Fast forward to 2022 and 32 million views online. Earlier this month, the Rockin' 1,000, comprised of musicians from 25 different countries, made their way to Paris to celebrate their 8th anniversary and perform at the Stade De France. This time it was the Guns n' Roses classic "Paradise City" that got the epic performance. Watch it below.
