Dave Grohl To The Rescue

(Banana 101.5) Cage the Elephant were in danger of missing their opening slot for Foo Fighters in Salt Lake City this week after their drummer's appendix burst. Luckily there was a pretty kick ass drummer already there and willing to sit in for a few songs Dave Grohl.

Dave Grohl made a name for himself beating the skins for Nirvana, and still occasionally plays in the Foo Fighters' off cycles most recently for Them Crooked Vultures. Though Dave fronts one of the world's biggest rock bands, he is still well respected (and rightfully so) as a rock drummer.

So when the Kentucky alt-rockers Cage the Elephant found their drummer Jared Champion hospitalized for appendix issues just hours before the show, Dave volunteered his services so they could still open for his band. A few songs into their set with a substitute drummer, Grohl made his way to the stage and finished out the last five songs of the set. more on this story
