Nirvana‘s former drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman was a guest on the Chris Moyles Show, where he recalled the first time he met Elton.
Dave Grohl said that one day, he was in an upscale London neighbourhood with his wife, baby daughter, and another musician, Dave Koz. Elton unexpectedly stepped out in front of them, and Koz told Grohl to go say hi.
Not knowing the rock veteran, he refused. But they wound up meeting anyway because the former Reg Dwight took the initiative.
Dave noticed that besides introducing himself, Elton said hello to Koz and gave his daughter a kiss. But what really stood out were his earrings, which matched his shoes.
