After standing her up the previous week when he’d promised to call the show, Dave spoke to Jo Whiley to coincide with ‘Wasting Light’ topping the UK album charts & here are the points of interest:
- Dave was out for dinner last week with Paul McCartney but didn’t mention Foo Fighters Beatles tribute at the David Letterman taping.
- Helen Mirren had men “falling at her feet” while taping SNL.
- After playing the barn of a tobacco farm as part of the Blackberry Garage Tour, Foo Fighters found out they were going to be #1 while sitting in a Chick-Fil-A.
- He doesn’t have a current favourite scary movie but said Amityville & Exorcist scarred him for life.
- Jo made him promise the band will play on the show next time they’re in the country.
