In a new 95.5 KLOS interview, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl discussed spending $666 at a bar recently. Alternative Nation transcribed Grohl’s comments.
Interviewer: I gotta ask you, are you always a big tipper or you just happen to see the opportunity to write “666” on a tip the other day?
Dave Grohl: Dude, come on. When you get a bill that says $333 it’s like I’m gonna go the extra mile. But it’s the sad thing I think it was $303.30 but I was too hammered to figure out the $302.70- I couldn’t do the real math. Which would have been strong but i was like seeing double at that point.
Dave Grohl recently went to the Rainbow Bar and Grill in Hollywood after a surprise Foo Fighters pop up performance to promote the Cal Jam festival. Grohl took photos and drank with fans at the bar, and he had quite the bill when he was done.
His bill was $333.30, and he tipped $333.00, leaving a total after the tip of $666.30. Only Dave Grohl could find a way to get his bill to 666, pure rock and roll!

After Foo Fighters’ surprise show as The Holy Shits a couple of weeks outside the Hollywood Palladium, Dave Grohl headed over the the Rainbow Bar and Grill, and he had some fun with Nirvana and Metallica fans, taking photos and also taking some shots. He was also photographed with a Kurt Cobain lookalike named Gabe Maska, leading to hilarious Instagram comments. One fan commented, “Kurt and Dave Grohl reunited at last #nirvanareunion.”
See video and photos below, including another photo of Maska, who is a musician.
Variety published a review of the show that said, “Indeed, the Holy Shits were the Foo Fighters themselves, who played an hour-long set comprised mostly of rarities from band’s two-decade-plus career.
As frontman Dave Grohl explained halfway through the show, the band wanted to break out songs they don’t usually get to play in their arena- stadium-sized shows. Clearly the Foos took the challenge seriously, busting into ‘Gimmie Stitches,’ a deep cut from the band’s 1999 album There Is Nothing Left To Lose, for only the second time in their career.
The non-hits kept coming, with half of the surprisingly small crowd taking in what Grohl called ‘Foo Fighter Nerd’ heaven, and the other half looking perplexed through the drop-C gut punch of ‘Weenie Beanie,’ played for the first time since 2014, and two key selections from the Foo’s seminal The Colour and the Shape, ‘Hey, Johnny Park!’ and the epic ‘New Way Home.’ The band encored with the undeniable ‘Everlong.'”
