Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters)

A major player on the alternative scene since the 1990s, Nathan Mendel has anchored the mighty Foo Fighters for several platinum slabs and stadium tours.

With his beloved candy apple red ’71 Precision, which Fender has replicated by way of a signature tribute model, Mendel works the lower register with precise harmonic and rhythmic movement to serve the singer and the songs – like most of us do.

Mendel was also a member of Sunny Day Real Estate, among other ensembles, and currently toils as leader of a side project entitled “Lieutenant.”
