Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was the latest interview guest of BBC’s ‘Reel Stories’ last week and paid his tribute to the KISS legend and the co-founder of the band Paul Stanley as he recalls the day he met Paul accidentally.
In the interview, Dave recalled the day he took his daughter to the school and saw Paul by accident. He also admitted that if Paul would not be in his life, he is not even sure that he would be playing guitar right now.
As you may already remember, this is not the first time Dave has paid his tribute to Paul and the other iconic members of KISS. Back in 2015, he made a statement on stage and paid tribute to KISS at ASCAP Pop Music Awards. On that day, Dave stated that every single morning, he would wake up in his room and looked at his heroes (KISS members) on the wall before walking to school.
Here is what Dave Grohl said:
“This is rock ‘n’ roll. I’m taking my daughter to school, and who’s there in assembly? Paul Stanley. As much as I tried to seem unfazed and like another dad in assembly as the kids are singing kumbaya, I was standing next to the man whose face was a poster on my wall growing up.
If it weren’t for this guy, I don’t know if I’d be playing guitar right now.”
