the Foo Fighters have been associated and played benefits for AIDS denialists
sorry, but it just does.
about 6 months ago?
Jamie Summers was telling literally everyone he saw at ATP NBC
Someone needs to take Dave Grohl down a peg or two
I demand satisfaction!
They believe that just because you have HIV doesn't mean you'll get AIDS and they think the drugs the doctors give you actually cause AIDS to happen.
Some conspiracy theory bollocks like that.
that's enough of an explanation for me. Thanks Theo!
they sure know how to have fun on the foo fighters message board!
"In January 2000, Nate Mendel organized a sold-out concert in Los Angeles to benefit Alive & Well AIDS Alternatives, a group which denies that HIV is the cause of AIDS. At the concert, the group's founder, Christine Maggiore, gave a speech attributing AIDS to drug use, stress, and medications, and implying that people should not be tested for HIV, nor should they take antiretroviral treatment if HIV-positive. Maggiore followed her own advice in the case of her daughter, who died of pneumonia as a complication of untreated AIDS at the age of three in 2005. Maggiore herself died at the age of 52 in 2008, under a doctor's care for pneumonia....The Foo Fighters no longer list Alive & Well as a supported charity on their website as of 2008."
the words "shit" and "no" come to mind...
