Dave Grohl Has Embarrassing Guitar Screwup Onstage


Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl reacted to having an out of tune guitar at a recent show in New Orleans.

Grohl first said, “I’m not just saying this, I don’t say this in other cities, this is my favorite fucking city. It’s the best. I really like it a lot.”

He added, “Can I have a guitar that’s in tune? Do you guys want in tune or out of tune? It’s up to you. Somewhere in-between?”

NOLA wrote in a review of the epic Foo Fighters show:

Pulling the curtain of curly black locks from his face and flashing his satyr-like smile, Grohl went on to express his love for New Orleans, which he called his favorite city in America. “If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be this amazing city,” he said.

To emphasize the band’s connection to the Crescent City, Grohl instructed drummer Taylor Hawkins to stand up in order to display his wildly patterned stretch pants, which he proudly said he’d purchased at a nearby New Orleans haberdashery … the Canal Street Walgreens. Near the end of the marathon show, the band played “In the Clear,” a song inspired by Grohl’s 2013 visit to New Orleans.
