Dave Grohl has said he “cried like a baby” when he saw Florence And The Machine covering Foo Fighter’s ‘Times Like These’ at Glastonbury. Tears of happiness, before you ask.

Speaking to Q Magazine, reports the NME, Grohl said that he had “prayed” that FloMac would get bumped up the bill after his band pulled out of their headline slot at the festival due to his broken leg.

“I was totally looking forward to playing with them [Flo et al] at Glastonbury”, he said. “When we cancelled and they were searching for a replacement I prayed they’d just move them to the top of the bill because they fucking deserve to be there. I was so excited when they announced they would, I emailed Florence to congratulate her”.

He added: “She gave me great advice for healing broken bones and said they we’re going to cover ‘Times Like These’. The day after the gig, someone sent me a link to the performance and I cried like a fucking baby. It melted my fucking heart. I am forever indebted to them. It meant so much, you have no idea”.

And here is that tearjerking performance for you to sob your way through:
