Last night, Foo Fighters debuted their 10-minute epic “The Teacher” at the Wal-Mart AMP in Arkansas. The band typically ends their shows with their seminal hit “Everlong,” but changed things up last night to premiere the song in a live setting. The track is a tribute to frontman Dave Grohl’s late mother, Virginia, who passed away last August. To make the moment even more special, the band was joined by Dave’s daughter, Violet, to perform with them.
