Them Crooked Vultures have joked about how drummer Dave Grohl was supposedly “rushed to doctor” because he’d overdosed on caffeine – by drinking too much coffee. Josh Homme and John Paul Jones, posted a video online explaining Grohl’s coffee-drinking habits.
“Two weeks after this video was shot, Dave was rushed to doctor due to the onset of unwanted physical effects caused by too much caffeine. For reals. He was kind of a mess. Since then he has reduced his intake of the super delicious hot beverage to a healthier level.”

Dave confirms it wasn’t a joke and was actually real…
“We were in the studio making a record and I was drinking a lot of coffee, I was doing Vultures stuff at night, Foo Fighters stuff during the day and I had a newborn at home so I was sleeping two-three hours a night on an air mattress in a guest bedroom. And yeah, I had too much coffee, I started to get chest pains so I went to the hospital and they told me to stop drinking the coffee.”
Who would have thought DG would have to quit coffee and not his favorite beverage Crown Royal Whiskey.
