Once Upon A Foo Fighter
Stahl said, "I was [on tour] in Tokyo when my brother called me and said, 'Hey, Dave might be calling you, because I think they might need a guitar player.' So that same day, Dave called me at my hotel and asked me if I wanted to be in the Foo Fighters. Of course, you don't have to twist my arm. It was crazy. I told him I had to finish my obligation there, which I did. Then I flew directly back to L.A. at the end of the tour, and then from there, flew straight to New York."
Stahl recalled having almost no time to prepare for his first Foo Fighters gig, the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, playing atop the Radio City Music Hall marquee. more on this story
