Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently was photographed hugging actress Minnie Driver backstage at a Swing Left political rally show. Driver is famous for her roles in classic 90’s films like Good Will Hunting.
Grohl got political in a new Forbes article, stating, “You do [have to fight back], but at the same time I do believe in when they go low you go high. I do believe in that. And I think about that every day. First thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check the f**king news. I don’t just check one news agent. I go through about six of them, just to see what’s going on. And that in itself is a little bit of a pickle. And I look and see what’s happening on the other side and there are times I think, ‘Oh god, I hope we give it to them.’ But then I think someone has to hold a little bit of civility.
I honestly think there is some currency to when they go low you go high cause otherwise we’re so f**ked. I remember when my father was working on Capitol Hill that on Sunday’s he would take me to this bar in Georgetown called Nathan’s and it’s sort of where a lot of the writers and PR guys and some politicians would come just to drink scotch. And they would all talk and get along, people from both sides of the aisle could step outside of the office and come down to Nathan’s and actually talk about stuff. I miss those days when people could sit down and really talk with each other. I think it’s still possible.”
