Meet and greet: Dave Grohl:
"Hello, my name is David Eric Grohl, I'm 31 years old, I'm a Capricorn and I play in a band called the Foo Fighters."
If you could duet with anyone what song would you choose and with who?
"Oh, I have to say I would probably do a duet with a friend of mine, there's a Canadian band called the Gundarvas, a song called 'Watching The Girl', its one of the prettiest songs I've ever heard in my life, its a great melody, I actually recorded a duet with my friend it will probably never be released, but um, 'Watching The Girl' by the Gundarvas, the greatest duet since 'Leather And Lace'."
What's the most embarrassing CD you own?
"I don't know, I have a lot, I do own all of the CDs of all the bands I've ever been in, those are kind of embarrassing, all my own, I'll say that."
Who or what last broke your heart?
"The Coverdale, Page record, I know a lot of those songs should have been Zepplin outakes, but they ended up Page, so that broke my heart."
Plasic surgery, money no object, what would you have done?
"My nostrils...uh tightened, because they are a little large, I've had a complex of them since I was 12, and Bobby St Francis, my sisters friend said he could see my brain through my nostrils."
Which Spice Girl would you be and why?
"I would be Sporty Spice, because she seems the most outgoing in an athletic sort of way and she's a lesbian, which makes her more of a man so that would be me. (Who said she was a lesbian?) Well, everybody has said she's a lesbian, isn't she? but maybe she hasn't come out yet, so sorry Mel!"
Who's your fantasy shag?
"Probably that chick who plays bass in the Smashing Pumpkins, she's hot. (The new one?) Yeah, she's fuckin hot."
What's the worst gig you ever played?
"Nirvana did a couple of shows in Brazil once that were pretty horrible that turned into weird little jam sessions that were ridiculously bad, but of course, everybody thought they were brilliant because they were so fuckin rotten, very you know, less Artsy More Fartsy (What the hell was that?) I don't know but it sounded good!"
Who would you be on Stars In Their Eyes?
"If I had to be a singer, I would want to be, oh, Gary Numan, that would be kind of fun, 'Cars' by Gary Numan, re-enact the video, paste my face white and smoke a cigarette, wear a weird suit, skinny tie, I could do that."
Who's autograph would you ask for?
"I've only asked for a few autographs in my life, but my favorite autograph that I've ever gotten was from RuPaul and that one stays with me, but now, I would have to say, um, I don't know actually, Im not a big collector, so I'd lose it, I'd ask william(?) for his autograph then I'd wipe my ass with it or something."
Recommend a book, record, movie.
"A wonderful book that I read years ago called 'The Gastronomical Me', which was a one woman's account of her life, kind of a biography, she remembered little anecdotes from her past through smells and tastes of foods, my mother gave me the book. Record, I'll have to recommend the new Queens of the Stone Age record, its great, everybody loves it, its no hype, its actually a good record. A film, I'd have to recommend The Amitiville Horror because that was made maybe 20 years ago, its still fuckin' scary."
Finally, tell us a joke.
"This horse walks into a bar and asks for a drink and the bartender says why the long face? I heard that one from Melissa!"
