Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is an incredible musician!
But how does one prepare for the type of show that Dave puts on? Is it meditation? Some sort of prayer circle? Nope...just an intense pre-gig drinking ritual!
In a new interview, Dave has revealed said ritual, and I wouldn't try it at home!
He revealed he takes three Advil 90 minutes before the show as a prep and then it begins.
“An hour before the gig, I have a Coors Light. About 50 minutes before the gig, I hit my first Jag [Jägermeister], finish the Coors Light, get another Coors Light going. Now there’s a bunch of people around, so I’m throwing shots at everybody and I’m taking shots with everyone in the room. The next Coors Light is down, I got a cold one.”
“Now it’s about maybe 20 minutes before going on. I’ve had three or four shots of Jäger and three Coors Lights. Then they sort of clear the room and we get 15 minutes to ourselves…"
“So then, it’s all of us and I feel guilty because I’m the only one who’s been doing the shots of the Jag so I start feeding shots of Jag to the rest of the band who are all drinking white wine and champagne and whatever.”
“So I’m pounding them with Jag but I have to take the shots with them so now I’m five or six shots in. And it’s like, it’s time to walk to the stage so I crack another beer just to have a cold one as I walk up and I pick up the bottle and drink the last inch of the Jag!”
“This is bad! This is how I’ve spent every night of the last year and a half. That’s why I’m not scared of the Lord. I’ve seen worse.”
Dave, you are a beast among men!
