Dave Grohl's Unusual Queen Keepsake

(Gibson) Dave Grohl keeps a pair of Brian May's underpants hanging from a door in his Los Angeles home as a souvenir. The Foo Fighters frontman and the Queen guitarist are friends and have worked together on several occasions.

May turned up in his running gear to do some recording, changed clothes after the session and left one of his bags in Grohl's house.

The Daily Express reports that Grohl explained to Elle magazine, "That's Brian May's underpants. We hang them up there like mistletoe. Brian came down to play on the record and he shows up at the studio wearing running shorts, socks and sneakers, with two huge bags. So he puts the bags down and says, 'I'm going to change my clothes,' then comes back in these, like, MC Hammer pants, plays the lead, hangs out and then has to split.

"An hour later, he called and said, 'You guys, I left one of my bags in the room, just leave it in there, I'll come back and get it.' So I was like, OK, and hung up the phone and looked in there. And there they were."
