DAVE GROHL GETS FUNNY IN L.A.
Dave Grohl was on hand on August 16th for a comedic performance at L.A.’s Largo with Beck, Tenacious D, actor John C. Reilly, and producer Greg Kurstin. Ultimate Classic Rock reported the Foo Fighters leader joined in on the crew’s performance of Seals & Croft‘s classic 1972 hit “Summer Breeze” jumping on stage at every verse to sing the the song’s signature guitar riff.
Among the other performers appearing were comedians Pete Holmes and Sarah Silverman, with Tenacious D playing a mini-set that features a take on REO Speedwagon‘s “Keep On Loving You.” Judd Apatow threw the benefit to raise funds “for VictimsFirst, which helps victims of mass shootings, terrorist attacks and other mass-casualty crimes.” (Ultimate Classic Rock)
