The Rolling Stones hired a ferry just for themselves. Others like to helicopter in to the Isle of Wight Festival – but not the Foo Fighters.
How great was it to see pictures of Dave Grohl strolling around the decks on the ferry, talking to fans?
Some other bands have even been known to visit the bridge and steer the ship.
I really felt for festival-goers returning early after Sunday’s wash-out. Cold and wet passengers groaned as the captain announced half-way through the sailing back to the mainland that rough weather would make the ship move and to hold on.
But it didn’t affect spirits and cries of ‘wahoooooo’ could be heard around the ship as we swayed back and forth!
