WTF??? It seems to be a really bad time in the music industry for rock stars named David. First, David Evans better known as “The Edge” of U2 fell off the stage in Vancouver, Canada. Another David, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters tripped and fell off stage during a concert in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Dave Grohl on his Black Flag tattoo: “When I was 12 or 13, I gave myself a Black Flag tattoo, prison style, with a needle and pen ink.” Years later Grohl didn’t forget about his childhood heroes and paid homage to Black Flag by playing a Dan Armstrong Luctie Guitar.

Now here is the aforementioned video where a “Very Gay” Grohl talks about how sexy Taylor Hawkins is and talks in detail about his “little nipples” during the intro of Van Halen “Everybody Wants Some”.

Imagine this…You get tickets to go see Them Crooked Vultures in concert. The band features Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age), Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and one of your idols John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin).
