The Athletic writer Rustin Dodd recently reported a funny story on Twitter about Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost mistaking Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl for a homeless person.
“Ned Yost ran into Dave Grohl outside a Starbucks during the off day in Chicago. Foo Fighters were playing Wrigley. Ned mistook him for a vagrant. ‘I passed him and looked and thought: Where’s his sign?’ he said.”
“Ned did some studying up on grunge history after the Grohl sighting. ‘I didn’t really know the history,’ he said. ‘He was with Kurt Cobain.'”
See the funny tweets below.
Grohl recently discussed playing Wrigley Field in an interview with the Chicago Tribune.
“Believe me,” Dave Grohl says, “I wake up every day and can’t believe this is my job. And the fact that I get to do it with people I actually love in places like Wrigley Field?” His voice trails off, and suddenly, for a rare moment, the liveliest and most caffeinated dude in rock music is at a loss for words. Calling this summer morning from Los Angeles, where he’s just dropped off his children at camp, Grohl continues.
“It’s not lost on me, dude,” the Foo Fighters frontman says of a multidecade career in which he bounced back from the devastating 1994 death of his Nirvana bandmate, Kurt Cobain, formed the Foos the following year, released a platinum-selling debut album, and now, more than 20 years on, finds himself headlining stadiums. “We all feel so incredibly lucky.”
