Dave Grohl Reveals Surprise Jam With Prince

(Classic Rock) Foo Fighters' mainman Dave Grohl reveals he jammed with Prince in 2011 at the request of the pop icon. The offer came during Prince's run of 21 dates at the LA forum - and the Foos' man says it took him completely by surprise.

He tells Rolling Stone: "I go to the first show in a party bus with all my friends, boozing it up. I walk into the Forum Club and bump into somebody from a road crew I'd work with before. He says, 'Prince knows you're here and he wants to jam.'

"At the end of the night, I'm standing next to this black curtain. I pull it back and there's Prince with Sheila E. I go, 'Hey, man, great show.' He says, 'When do you want to jam? How about Friday?'

And Grohl says when he returned to The Forum for the jam session, Prince had assembled his whole band specially for the occasion. Read more here.
