The cover of Watford’s group on My Hero from the Foo Fighters to thank NHS staff


An indie rock band created a musical cover of a song by the Foo Fighters during their lockdown to honor NHS staff.

Watford-based band Les Natalies filmed themselves performing a cover of the song My hero from their separate homes.

The group, which was formed 10 years ago, is made up of vocalist Paul McLoughlin, guitarist David MacRaild, bassist Stephen York and drummer Lawrence Farelly.

Mr Farrelly, an instrument teacher who posts videos online for his students, said he got the idea.

He said, “While doing this (posting videos for their students), I got the idea for the band to record a song to thank all the key workers.

“These people at work put themselves in danger, and it’s just a nice way to show their appreciation.”

Each member recorded their part of the song and Mr. Farrelly said it took them a week to edit it all together.

Mr Farelly said before the pandemic his group performed in pubs most Friday and Saturday nights.

He said: “About five weeks ago we did our last performance, even then it wasn’t very crowded.

“But the video was a great way to connect with everyone and the feedback we received was superb.”
