The Sun reports that speaking backstage in Manchester, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed he’d received an angry message from the Late Late Show host James Corden.
James was hurt after Dave called the skit “uncomfortable” when his band debuted on the segment last year.
In an exclusive chat at the Etihad Stadium, Dave looked sheepish as he confessed: “I got a f***ing text from him that morning. He was like, ‘What the f***, dude?’
“I was like, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!’
“I had to text him back and was like, ‘No dude, that’s not what we meant.’
“What we were trying to say was it was uncomfortable to sit in a car and try to sing our own songs.
“If we were singing Queen songs or Led Zeppelin songs or Batles songs, it would have been fine. But to sit there and sing your own songs . . . we felt weird about it.
“I don’t drive around Los Angeles singing to my own songs. So when we said it was an uncomfortable experience . . .
“I felt so bad when it came out in the press — ‘Foo Fighters had a terrible time, they hated the whole f***ing thing’. We didn’t. He’s such a sweet guy.”
The pair have since made up, with James inviting the legendary rockers back on The Late Late Show for a second time to put things right.
Of the skit, Foos guitarist Pat Smear said: “By hour three in the dude’s car, it got less fun.
“It kinda went on. When we stopped at Guitar Center, that felt like we were done. But it was like, ‘This is halfway’.”
All is good now with Corden, as Foo Fighters are set to appear on his show tonight.
