Dave Grohl Calls Out Red Hot Chili Peppers Rejection


Dave Grohl reportedly said at a recent Foo Fighters show that bandmate Pat Smear rejected joining Red Hot Chili Peppers in their early days. Foo Fighters abandoned a terrible cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Scar Tissue” a few days ago.

“This has been a special trip for me because on this trip we have a new Foo Fighter in the band with us,” Grohl said. He added, “Let me tell you something — she is the best fucking singer I know.”

He said no fan was needed for the next performance, as he already had someone ready. “Let me tell you something, you can put your sign down,” Grohl told fans who wanted to come onstage, “You know why you can put your sign down? ‘Cause you know who’s gonna come out with me and sing right now? My daughter Violet is gonna come out and sing a song.”

He proudly proclaimed, “Ladies and gentlemen, the best singer in the Grohl family — Miss Violet Grohl right now, right here.” He added before she started singing, “I’ll only be listening to her.” Dave Grohl recently looked back at a tour he did with an Eddie Vedder surprise.
