David Grohl, frontman for Foo Fighters, has confirmed that he has, in fact, been hospitalized over coffee. His confession comes after a spoof video making fun of his coffee addiction was aired. He admitted that it was based on his own actual coffee emergency.
Grohl was hospitalized after an intense work schedule took a toll on his health and he began experiencing chest pains.
The film showed the rocker in a studio with Them Crooked Vultures bandmates and depicted Grohl’s love of coffee. It ended with the tag line “rushed to doctor due to the onset of unwanted physical effects caused by too much caffeine. For reals. He was kind of a mess.”
Grohl told Britain’s Absolute Radio “That was a year ago, the ‘Fresh Pots” video. We were in the studio making a record and I was drinking a lot of coffee. At one point I was doing Vultures stuff at night, Foo Fighters stuff during the day and I had a newborn at home and I was sleeping maybe two or three hours a night on an air mattress in a guess bedroom. And yea, I had too much coffee and I started having chest pains, so I went to the hospital and they told me to stop drinking so much coffee.”
