(Classic Rock) Dave Grohl has recalled how Taylor Swift saved him from embarrassment at a party held by Paul McCartney - when the Foo Fighters mainman was too high to get away with jamming a song.

McCartney had just played a brand-new song on piano, but Grohl can't play the instrument. And although there were guitars in the room, they were all left-handed, meaning Grohl couldn't play them either.

He told the story during a solo show at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity in France last week. Grohl said: "Just so you know, Paul McCartney is the baddest motherf***er in the world. He's not only the coolest, he's the best.

"He started playing this song and he's blowing everyone's mind. A new Paul McCartney song - weird! He finishes, and everyone looks at me, and they're like, 'Go on, Dave, play a song!'

"I'm like, 'I don't know how to play piano.' I look around and all the guitars are left-handed. I'm screwed." He described Swift's offer to play the piano as "like Batman when you need him," and then told how he took a left-handed bass from the wall and tried to work out a way to accompany her. "It's like one of those nightmares where you're running backwards, always late," he said.

Then it struck him: "I know this song. What the hell is this? And she was playing Best Of You. As if I weren't high enough - that blew me into outer space! Taylor Swift, Best Of You, Paul McCartney… I lost my mind." Watch the video here.
