Dave Grohl's Christmas Plans

Melody Maker 2000

"I'm going home for a comfortable, homey family Christmas. I hate missing Christmas, I'm really close with my family, so we try to spend every holiday together. I'll just go to Virginia - it'll be cold, probably snow. We have this Christmas party....actually the first time I ever took mushrooms was this Christmas party we had, we were like 14 or 15, and someone had given me mushrooms for Christmas. We have this tradition where my mothers friends and sister's friends come, it's like 60 or 70 people, and I tripped my fucking balls off in front of all my mothers friends who were all teachers at my school! So that was kind of a nightmare. If it snows, everyone gets stuck in the house. What do i want for Christmas? Oof. A new record! Some new songs, man."
