I'm starting to realize that Dave Grohl will never leave me alone. How many articles have I written about this guy, now, Aimee? I guess that's the beat of the culture, though: Grohl and the Foo Fighters will probably be in the limelight at least until Sonic Highways finishes out its run on HBO but probably not until their tour runs its course next August. Which explains his showing up on Howard Stern this morning and rattling off with the shock-jock for about 75 minutes.
Much was discussed, with a few of the highlights being a strange encounter with Prince (I'm starting to think that man's an elf. Honestly. He's too strange NOT to be), Grohl's ongoing contact with David Bowie and their never-was collaboration, bits and pieces about Foo Fighter history and production and not a WORD was said about Courtney Love
OK, I'm not fooling anybody. OF COURSE Love's name came up because why wouldn't it: the woman worms her way into any conversation concerning ex-Nirvana members like a persistent and particularly virulent strain of the plague. This time the conversation turned to her friendship with Grohl (seems all those rumors about them burying the hatchet are true) and to that rumor she'd spread about him travelling to a strip-club over a $10,000 bet. A rumor, Grohl was quick to assert, was only that. Pssh, sure, David. Like Courtney Love would lie or exaggerate about anything!
There are more gems here, though, so dig for yourself with this stream below:
