FOO FIGHTER DAVE GROHL GOES TO HOSPITAL – HE’S A JAVA-JUNKIE
Crooked Vulture/Foo Fighter Dave Grohl does what virtually any really hardworking American does when faced with two jobs and a baby, drinks a lot of coffee. Working on Foo Fighters album by day, moonlighting on Them Crooked Vultures album by night and a brand new baby would drive anyone to become a Java Junkie. But it does have it’s drawbacks, i.e. chest pains. Grohl revealed to AbsoluteRadio he was told to lay off the caffeine after being admitted to hospital.
That’s it for now on the music gossip front. Oh, have you heard who’s coming to town? Wowsers, unbelievable. Gene’s got the dirt tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30 am.
