When it comes to Dave Grohl, we all know he has a sense of humor worth its weight in gold. Whether it’s trolling the Westboro Baptist Church when they protest at Foo concerts, or playing in front of live crowds with a broken foot from a custom-built throne, or even changing the name of the band to the ‘Dee Gees’ to cover classic disco hits on vinyl… Grohl has never taken himself too seriously. That trait recently played out once again at a private event for a software company.
The Foos were playing a short set to get employees hyped up with the addition of a few new Foos… as four mascots took the stage to join in on their performance of “All My Life”. Half-way through the song, Grohl jumps down in front of the stage, guitar in hand, to take in the absurd image for himself. The camera pans and cuts to each member of the band, with a huge smile or laugh on their faces. Meanwhile, the mascots increase their ‘rock out’ as Dave comes back up to the stage and the mic to quip,
“Just when I thought life couldn’t get any fuckin’ weirder,”
He then cracks up with laughter as he loses his place in the song before moving into the final chorus. These are just the kind of events and appearances that confirm our love for this guy and his rock-n-roll compadres. Hopefully, you had a chance to see them when they played their outdoor show at the Azura Amphitheater in early August.
Their new album “Medicine At Midnight’ is available now. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to grab the exclusive vinyl Record Store Day release ‘Hail Satin’ by the ‘Dee Gees’ you can stream all the songs on Spotify or check out a few of the videos below.
