Howard Stern Exposes Bold Dave Grohl Secret


On a recent episode of The Howard Stern Show, Howard revealed that Dave Grohl’s performance of “Everlong” made him completely ‘rethink’ Foo Fighters, and that it changed the band forever from prior to the iconic 1998 performance. A recap states:

Howard said they have been putting out new performances from musicians every Saturday on the app. Howard said they’re launching a new radio show on Saturdays on Howard 101 called Saturday Soundtrack. He said they went through the archives and they have a ton of performances. He said they created a new show out of that. Howard said they are doing it exclusively for SiriusXM unlike JD who puts stuff on Twitter.

Howard said this is Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins performing ”Everlong” in 1998. Howard said this is amazing story. He said that Dave said that they were never going to do this song acoustically and they ended up playing it on every radio station and Dave re-thought the whole band. Robin said he also says it helped make that song a hit.

Howard played the clip of Dave playing ”Everlong” acoustically. Howard said it happened just like that. Howard said he can’t stop playing it. He said you’ll hear it on Saturday though.

Howard said Dave said this acoustic version changed the direction of the band to pure rock to doing other things. He said he also says that it made the song popular again.

Howard said Dave also said he wrote the song acoustically but he had never performed it live like that. He said tune into the show on Saturday to hear it. He said they also have Lady Gaga performing ”100 Million Reasons” in the studio. Howard played some of that. He said that you’ll hear her talking about working with Mark Ronson too.

Howard said they’ll be doing this every Saturday on Howard 101.
