Dave Grohl Remembers Jamming with Prince

"Three years ago, Prince books 21 nights at the Forum [in Los Angeles].  I can't f**king wait.  I go to the first show, in a party bus with all my friends, boozing it up," Grohl tells Rolling Stone.  "I walk into the Forum Club and bump into somebody from a road crew I'd work[ed] with before.  He says, 'Prince knows you're here.  He wants to jam.'  The end of the night, I'm standing next to this black curtain.  I pull it back -- there's Prince with Sheila E.  I go, 'Hey, man, great show.'  He says, 'When do you want to jam?  How about Friday?'  All right, cool!"

The next week, Grohl shows up at the Forum only to be told Prince was feeling under the weather. However, before he's about to leave, "Prince just appears," Grohl says, and invites Dave to play drums with his band.

"We start playing.  He's got the whole band up there, throwing chord changes with his fingers, conducting the band as we're jamming," Grohl remembers.  "I can't believe this is happening.  And it's happening in a completely empty Forum.  Then he puts on a guitar and starts playing [Led Zeppelin's] 'Whole Lotta Love'.  It's f**kin' bad-ass.  We do that for 10 minutes.  It slays.  He says, 'We should do that, man.  What are you doing next Friday?'"

"I never heard from Prince again," he says.  "But I swear it happened.  I swear.  And nobody saw it."
